“Nike has sent out invitations to the media for an October 15 event in New York City, where it plans to discuss the future of its digital world experience,” Electronista reports. “Likely, but not confirmed, at the event is a new iteration of the FuelBand monitoring device, which is nearly two years old.”
“Nike has not explicitly said that it will reveal a new FuelBand or even update the software,” Electronista reports. “It may instead opt to discuss what it plans on doing with the iPhone 5s M7 motion sensing chip.”

Shame on you, Botvinnick!
Enjoy the fresh air while pounding the roads.
Wouldn’t be a hoot if Tim Cook showed up and showed of the new iWatch running the Nike app. One can always dream I suppose.
So no iPad announcement on the 15th?
Cue the analyst on Oct 16 complaining that Apple disappointed everyone when they don’t introduce an iWatch on Oct 15.
Hey, I think an Apple/Nike collaboration (using the M7 chip) will be introduced as the new FuelBand. Tim Cook is a fitness nut, so he would likely pursue such a product. It will do more than only fitness-related tasks, and have a real display (not a bunch of LED dots), but it will look a lot like the existing FuelBand.
Or maybe this IS the iWatch. 🙂
