Welcome to our coverage of today's NikeFuel Forum
An updated version of the Nike Fuelband is widely expected to be unveiled
Our CNET team is at the event site in Manhattan, but the doors haven't been opened yet
Note that there is no live video stream of this event, unfortunately
the original Fuelband launched last year (early 2012).
Since then, though, the "fitness tracker" and "wearable tech" markets have really exploded.
Just last week, the Fitbit Force was announced, and it's one of the best products in the category to date.
Good point on Nike+ Move -- that app was shown off at the Apple iPhone 5S unveiling, but we haven't heard any news about it since.
As far as expectations, the general "step ups" for fitness products tend to be heart-rate monitoring, sleep monitoring, and notifications from paired phones (texts, caller ID, social apps, etc.). It will be interesting to see which, if any, of these features Nike incorporates into the (presumed) new model.
Another big factor will be cost. The Fitbit Force is $130 -- very affordable, especially for a model that doubles as a wristwatch.
When I asked Nike about a live video feed, they said there was none available.
[The vendors are the ones who usually provide the feed.]
@Dan -- I agree. Should be a priority in this day and age.
