Nike claimed as recently as October last year that the primary reason for a lack of FuelBand support on Android was a dearth of Bluetooth LE in a significant number of devices.

[New App] Popular Intelligent Alarm Clock Sleep Cycle Comes To Android

Typical smartphone alarms are rather rude. They don't care whether someone is ready to get out of bed. All that matters is that it's 6AM, and it's time to get up. Snooze all you want, but in five minutes, it will still be time to get up. Popular iOS app Sleep Cycle tries to be more considerate with its approach.

As one of the more ubiquitous brands in the field, the company carries some weight. So when it releases a new navigation app, it's worth taking notice.
