Nike released a Rose Gold model of the FuelBand SE earlier and now the company announced another limited edition version of its activity tracker. The newly minted Silver Edition, which is part of the Metaluxe Collection, joins the Black, Pink Foil, Total Crimson, Volt and Rose Gold as a member of the current Nike+ FuelBand SE lineup. Nike's clearly done its research and knows there's a market for these shinier, special edition wearables; a quick browse would tell you it is currently all sold out of the Rose Gold FuelBand SE. Other than the obvious addition of a silver plate on the clip, don't expect any other changes out of this new FuelBand SE. The Silver Edition's functionality is exactly the same as is found on the cheaper, more colorful Sports Pack, features like tracking daily activities, measuring intensity of workouts and being able to share this information with friends. The Silver Edition is geared toward people who prefer a subtler and sleeker version of Nike's FuelBand SE and it is a needed and very solid option.
After trying it out, you can't deny your fondness for the new chrome variant. There were some worries about it being a huge fingerprint magnet, but this wasn't a noticeable issue and a quick T-shirt rub can't solve almost immediately. Many people won't mind shelling out the $169 when the Silver Edition hits shelves on January 19th.
