Nike to open FuelBand API to mix music, movement

Nike FuelBand to let devs integrate with more apps

Nike let slip Friday night that it would open up a beta version of an app programming interface (API) for its FuelBand movement tracker. South by Southwest Managers Hack organizer Backplane briefed The Next Web that developers would soon have the option of integrating the FuelBand with their own music apps. How much data would reach apps versus coming back wasn't given out.

The Managers Hack competition serving as the introduction takes place on Sunday, and it's implied that the FuelBand itself will be a possible target for hacks during the contest. A beta exit date isn't yet known.

A FuelBand is intended for more than just exercise. It can track everyday movement and calculates calories burned in the process. Individual devices cost $149 and are so far only intended to work with an iOS companion app; an Android version of the app is due in the summer.
