Nike’s FuelBand fitness bracelet gets torn down on the FCC, user manual revealed
Nike unveiled its FuelBand fitness bracelet last month, hoping to capture a chunk of the growing fitness technology market. While the idea of a fitness band is nothing new, Nike’s FuelBand offers a few unique features such as a display consisting of 20 LCDs, Bluetooth and a convenient integrated USB dongle.
Recently, the FuelBand made an appearance on the FCC, winning approval for its Bluetooth capabilities. Better yet, Nike’s FCC filings include a host of internal photos, giving us a look inside the FuelBand’s rubber exterior.
Some of the visible chips in the FuelBand include an STMicro STM32 ultra low power Cortex-M3 32MHz MCU, Spansion S29FL032 flash memory, and a TI M430F5528 IC. It’s interesting to see how Nike combined circuit boards with flexible sections to give the FuelBand its circular shape.
Check out the full gallery below. There are three sizes of the FuelBand shown in most pictures. If you’re interested, you can view the FuelBand’s user manual here.
The FuelBand is expected to ship on February 22nd for $150.
