    I have had my fuelband (synched to my MAC) for about 1 month. It worked great and I loved it, however for some odd reason yesterday morning it just stopped registering activity and is stuck at 0. I have call Nike support, have soft & hard-reset the device multiple times, but cannot get it to work. I am extremely disappointed. Since I could not get this directly from the Nike store/website due to availability (believe me, I waited on-line several times when "more" became available) I ended up purchasing on eBay, so now I have no receipt to send back under the manufacturer's warranty for a replacement. Has anyone else had this problem and were you able to fix it??

    Have you tried Force Firmware Update ?

    Hold down the button on your FuelBand then plug it into the USB Port. It should force update.

    What did Nike say ? Did they tell you SOL or are you assuming ? I would call again and speak to another rep.

    Call them again, ask the person you're speaking to to speak to their supervisor, and explain your situation to them. Give that a shot.

    I purchased my Nike Fuel Band off Craigslist and had no receipt and was able to get a brand new exchange for having rusted screws. It's a pretty simple process and only took 4 days to get the replacement. Nike has excellent customer service so just call and dont worry about not having a receipt.
