Nike+ FuelBand app update lets you brag about your marathon success with photos

Nike_FuelBand_App_Update_large.jpgNike’s FuelBand may be inspiring those who would otherwise be couch potatoes to get up and break a sweat, but what good’s that if you can’t show off your rock hard calf muscles?

A new update to the Nike+ FuelBand app will let you do just that, letting you add photos of your workouts through the app to share with Facebook friends, with location tags and exercise achievements all attached.

The app will also allow you to customise your networking photo with your current NikeFuel Score (and the Nike+ logo – kind of like those kids that used to have the “Swoosh” shaved into their heads) too. Not a bad idea – anything that can obscure my pained post-run face photo.

Finally, the app also introduces new customisable social leaderboards, using the NikeFuel score as a currency with which to challenge your pals latest fitness achievements.

With no FuelBand support planned for Android devices yet, this remains an iOS-only update.
