    does anyone know if they are making a Nike fuel app for Apple watch anytime soon? Any predictions? I know it's a gimmick, but it's addicting to me. Until then, I'll continue to wear my fuelband. And I know the Nike fuel allow you to use iphone, but when I weight lift, it can't record my upper body movements.

    It's unlikely to come out until the app could have access to the accelerometer (at least) within the watch - so if it is in the cards, it would not debut until WatchOS 2.0 is live. I'd be interested in the app too. I used my Fuelband religiously until it stopped staying clipped, conveniently after the warranty ran out. That being said, the Activity app baked into the current WatchOS is performing the same function for me in keeping me motivated to keep moving.

    Do you not find that the app massively underscores your fuel compared to the band (when generally walking) then massively overseers the band (when running)

    I would love the app to come to apple watch

    I actually threw my Fuelband in the trash after a week w/my AW. And I had gotten the fuel band right when it came out.

    I agree with you, fuel points were motivational (I found all other data pretty useless). But I find the AW rings just as motivational and more specific, useful and reliable.

    You could user he calories in "Move" as points. I've upped my calories in move regularly since receiving and like with the Fuelband, if it looks like I'll be short, I'll go for a walk or run an extra mile. I already exercise more than 30 min a day. So the Exercise ring is not a useful to me until they add more functionality (I know in my head I could just go for 45 min or whatever. But that is not as motivational as "closing the ring").

    Really hoping this happens. I assume watchOS 2 makes this possible?

    Any way to port existing Nike fuelband data into the Apple Watch data? I understand that's not likely considering they are different units altogether but hoping for some way not to lose my data on Nike..
