Nike laid off part of its Fuelband fitness tracker team with plans to abandon the hardware. But did they fail? Or was competition about to get really hot in this space?
Turns out, they are repositioning themselves. And in a much better one too. The move is strategic to open up Nike software to other wearable platforms. One of them would be Apple's upcoming iWatch.

The iWatch — along with the upcoming iOS 8 software for iPhones and tablets — is said to have a strong emphasis on health and fitness.
