Rock Weekly: RIP Nike FuelBand?
The rumor of Nike killing its FuelBand product started on Secret and quickly spilled into a reported story, soliciting a finely-worded response from the athletic wear giant. Our take: FuelBand is dead, either way. If Nike goes looking for a new business to enter, 9 out of 10 doctors warn others against entering the field, so they should probably look elsewhere. All this sour news is no way to start the week—hear from optimistic Rock Health founders, Christine and Adam on their vision for the future in our latest Startup Elements videos.
