A fresh report that is bound to turn many heads, Nike has fired most of its engineers working on the FuelBand and will stop production of the famous wearable.
Nike’s FuelBand SE accessory is more than just an activity tracker, or, at least, it has become much more than that, which is evident from the variety of color variants that the accessory is available in under Nike’s Metaluxe Collection. Now, joining the ranks along side Black, Pink Foil, Total Crimson, Volt and Rose Gold is the newly released Silver Edition, which will become available through the company’s official retail stores starting Jan. 19 with a price tag of $169.
Nike's second-generation offering to the FuelBand range of wearable hardware has gone on sale through Apple's Online Store. Nike officially announced the FuelBand SE last month with the intention being to compliment the first-generation FuelBand with a more feature extensive successor. The wearable was originally intended to go one sale on November 6th, but it seems to have been made available early in a partnership with Apple and their sales channels.
Earlier on this month, we heard that Nike was planning a special event on October 15th to announce the details of its second-gen Nike+ FuelBand, and today, the world's most famous seller of sports and fitness-wear has come through with the specifics. The new wristband, which is called the FuelBand SE, arrives in a multitude of different colors, and if you thought the first-gen model was pretty cool, well Nike has, in typical Nike fashion, just made things a little bit cooler.
