Nike+ Fuel Band
For the fitness-minded dad, the Nike+ Fuel Band is the perfect, simple, lightweight device that you can wear around your wrist to track activity. No cable or special adapter is required, as you can charge/sync it quickly by plugging it directly into a USB port.

It will track your steps as with similar devices (e.g., Jawbone Up or BodyMedia Fit), but the Nike+ Fuel Band actually has a display where you can see Time,

Steps, Calories and Fuel. It measures your steps along with showing you your daily progress (whether you hike, surf or cycle).

As with iGrill, the app is free, but the Nike+ Fuel Band costs $150 at your nearest Apple Store or online at
