Nike fuel band stuck on starting up
Shoe Dog: A Memoir by the Creator of NIKE by Phil KnightIn this candid and riveting memoir, for the first time ever, Nike founder and CEO Phil Knight shares the inside story of the company’s early days as an intrepid start-up and its evolution into one of the world’s most iconic, game-changing, and profitable brands.
In 1962, fresh out of business school, Phil Knight borrowed $50 from his father and created a company with a simple mission: import high-quality, low-cost athletic shoes from Japan. Selling the shoes from the trunk of his lime green Plymouth Valiant, Knight grossed $8,000 his first year. Today, Nike’s annual sales top $30 billion. In an age of startups, Nike is the ne plus ultra of all startups, and the swoosh has become a revolutionary, globe-spanning icon, one of the most ubiquitous and recognizable symbols in the world today.
But Knight, the man behind the swoosh, has always remained a mystery. Now, for the first time, in a memoir that is candid, humble, gutsy, and wry, he tells his story, beginning with his crossroads moment. At 24, after backpacking around the world, he decided to take the unconventional path, to start his own business—a business that would be dynamic, different.
Knight details the many risks and daunting setbacks that stood between him and his dream—along with his early triumphs. Above all, he recalls the formative relationships with his first partners and employees, a ragtag group of misfits and seekers who became a tight-knit band of brothers. Together, harnessing the transcendent power of a shared mission, and a deep belief in the spirit of sport, they built a brand that changed everything.

Setting aside the obvious marketing and business partnership between Nike and Apple, it's unclear why it exists. But really, this is just an Apple Watch Series 2 with a few bits added. The other audience, and the one that Nike and Apple are probably more interested in, is the casual runner. They get their miles in, but they're not religious about it — to them, running is more about clearing the mind and getting some cardio in than scoring a PR. I'd put myself more in that category than the former. There are a couple of ways to answer that question.
Back in the spring I started to compare various activity monitors — in the hopes of making sense of this fast moving and exploding market segment. The primary goal of these devices is to get or keep people moving and active. At the time, it was the third major dedicated device after the Jawbone Up and Fitbit. But does it hold up? And is it accurate?
