From Nike is giving partial refunds for Fuelband owners after a lawsuit alleged the wearables aren’t accurate of July 27, 2015 by Business Insider
Nike and collaborator Apple deny the allegations in the lawsuit but agreed to settle to avoid a continued legal tussle, according to court documents.
Nike launched the FuelBand in 2012. It’s a wrist band that tracks movement and translates it into what Nike calls “Fuel.” Users can set daily goals for how much movement that they want to achieve. The band can connect wirelessly to a smartphone app and its features include a pedometer and a clock. Nike hasn’t disclosed sales figures. Last year, it laid off some employees who worked on the devices but said it would continue to make them.
