Nike+ Move app does not replace Fuelband


I have just switched to using iPhone after hanging on to my android for 6 years and I am looking forward to using the Nike+ Move app (which is exclusive to iphone 5 and up), thinking I could finally ditch my smelly fuelband and wear a proper watch..I am in for a surprise - The fuel earned on Nike move app is solely for viewing purpose only and not uploaded to the Nike+ website, this is what Nike said:

DOES NIKEFUEL EARNED USING THE NIKE+ MOVE APP APPEAR IN ANY OTHER PLACES?

The NikeFuel earned using the Nike+ Move app appears only within the Nike+ Move app. The Nike+ Move app is a stand-alone, introductory experience on the iPhone 5S announced by Apple

That means I have to keep wearing the fuelband for now to keep earning those trophies...

Some more information about the difference between the fuelband and the move app:

The Nike+ Move App is an introductory experience on iPhone 5S, while the Nike+ FuelBand SE and Nike+ FuelBand App offer a complete, all day Nike+ experience that works on most iOS devices.

Specifically, the Nike+ FuelBand SE can be worn places you wouldn’t take your phone, be on your wrist throughout the day (providing the most representative view of your body movements) and be used on its own or with a variety of iOS devices. The Nike+ FuelBand syncs with the Nike+ FuelBand App and Nikeplus.com so you can see your progress, earn achievements, plus share and compete with your friends.
