I have been looking into the Nike Fuelband and the alternatives for a while now. The Up fail and the Fitbit looks average. But the Fuelband looks great. I even read about the new SE edition which is coming out. So when I decided to get it, I found that there aren't available anywhere!

Or am I missing something?

Can someone help with this?

I'm trying to buy the Nike Fuelband SE on the Nike.com website using Youshop but it will not accept my NZ (or UK) credit card... any way around this?

I just saw some comparison charts.
Fitbit flex preferred over Nike fuelband.

I have to admit that I personally use a Fitbit. I also use personally use a Nike Sportswatch +

I have the original FuelBand and I think it's fantastic. Had a friend purchase one while he was up in New York.
I will say though that like a lot of these fitness devices, it is a motivation tool and you have to use it constantly to actually give you insight on your exercise patterns. 

Also a great party trick to show the bluetooth sync!

Also will mention I've only had mine around 15 months and some of the pixels on the screen have already died.

Ended up buying on Amazon in the end, had to pay slightly higher price but had no problems with Youshop and NZ credit card.

I'd like to remind folks buying anything on Amazon to use our Amazon affiliate link... Every little bit helps ;)
