    I just saw a story that Apple is removing rival fitness trackers from its stores. This is interesting since Apple used to promote that Nike stuff.

    It will probably have to wait on the next SDK since all sensors are off limits to 3ed parties. However since Nike is a close parter with Apple they will probably get and early crack at it. I would email Nike and ask.

    In 2 words: Battery life. Apple needs to get lots of real world user data usage to analyze the best methods, rules and restrictions for allowing 3ed parties access. Remember, Apple is not just selling 50,000 examples but will sell millions.

    If Apple just came out and opened the sensors to any 3ed party app it would be the wild west with inefficient Apps killing the battery in hours or less.

    Probably sooner than later. Nike already released an update to the App where you can use your iphone as a substitute for the Nike fuel band.

    I'm also really interested in this. Will what they showed for watchOS 2 allow for this?
