Nike went with its own proprietary "unit" of measurement called "Fuel" it is a measurement of your activity you have engaged in during your day. The band work simultaneously with the app. From the app you can set and edit your goal. The real kicker for me is that the app helps with tracking your progress and your "fuel" for the week and month.
As a current Nike+ member and user I would use the Nike+ GPS to track my running. It captures maps, distance, calories, average pace, and syncs to most social networks on top of your Nike account. I use the dailymile widget on this blog to post my runs on my homepage. This is synced to my workouts on my Nike account. This left me wondering how my fuel would interact with my GPS runs.

Some things that don't sync. On the dailymile site my fuels credits don't count as "activity" (makes sense). be cool in next generation of band if it had GPS and can switch to a workout mode to be able to track data separately for that specific workout (ie: my running, like to know distance, pace, calories with out an extra app). But these are all #FirstWorldProblems, Go ahead and try to get your hand a on your own band and #MakeItCount.
