Apple and Nike settlement shows wearable flaw
Nike and Apple have agreed to settle in a class action lawsuit alleging the two sold the Nike FuelBand fitness tracker despite knowing the device’s biometrics measurements were inaccurate.
Nike will pay out $2.4 million in claims to people who bought the FuelBand between January 2012 and June 2015. Apple, which sold the FuelBand in its stores until March of this year, will pay nothing. Because it had better lawyers, we guess.
But the case shows how silly the programming on fitness bands and other wearable computers is.
The plaintiffs in the class argued the calorie burn, steps, and overall measurements in the device’s “NikeFuel” dashboard were inaccurate, and that Nike and Apple knew all about it.
