If you’re looking to buy Nike Fuelband, but are resisting only because Android don’t have a great syncing app, you’re out of luck. Nike confirmed to a customer that, they’ll only be focusing on Web and iOS apps for now. Blackberry, Windows Phone 8 or Android app won’t be seeing the light of the day, at least for now. Nike represents another example of fitness companies directing their primary focus towards iOS, often leaving Android on the back burner. The jawbone has also yet to embrace the OS with a companion app for its line of wearable fitness accessories. To be clear, plenty of runner-friendly apps can be found via Google Play. But if you’re looking to track your health to a closer degree, it would seem Fitbit remains your best option for now.
Here’s the tweet:
@mkoyerp Right now, we’re focused on iOS and web. We’re not working on an Android App.
