    Thanks for your feedback.

    Your Nike+ FuelBand SE or first generation FuelBand can be paired with a compatible iPhone or iPod touch via bluetooth. Click the type of FuelBand you have to see detailed step-by-step instructions.

    Nike+ FuelBand SE
    1. If you haven't already done so, download and install the free Nike+ FuelBand App on your iOS device.
    2. With your FuelBand SE in close proximity, open your iOS device’s home screen. Select the Nike+ FuelBand App icon.
    3. Press the button on your FuelBand SE.
    4. If your NikeFuel does not automatically sync, pull down the screen in the FuelBand App to sync.

    Once you have completed this process, your FuelBand SE and your mobile device will remain paired.

    Nike+ FuelBand
    1. If you haven't already done so, download and install the free Nike+ FuelBand App on your iOS device.
    2. Make sure that your FuelBand is in proximity to your iOS device.
    3. From your iOS device's home screen, navigate to Settings - Bluetooth and toggle to On.
    4. Press and hold down your FuelBand's button until the Bluetooth icon appears on your FuelBand's screen. (You'll see SYNC when you first hold down the button. Just keep holding it down until the Bluetooth icon appears.)
    5. Once the Bluetooth icon appears, release the button to intiate pairing mode. The Bluetooth icon should now begin blinking.
    6. Look for "Nike+ FuelBand" on your phone's Bluetooth device list. Tap it when it appears.
    7. Look on your FuelBand's screen for a check mark next to the Bluetooth icon.

    If you see an x rather than a check mark next to the Bluetooth icon, pairing was unsuccessful. Please retry the steps above.

    If you are having trouble pairing your device, please see our FAQ on troubleshooting pairing issues.

    NOTE: If you move your FuelBand out of proximity to your iOS device, the connection may be broken and you may need to repeat the pairing process.
