耐克拟放弃健身追踪器产品

Staff disbanded as Nike considers adding Fuelband to the flames

The race to dominate the nascent wearable technology market is already witnessing early stumbles – even before one potential winner has finished limbering up.
主导初生的可穿戴技术市场的竞赛已出现早期失利者——即便一个潜在获胜者还没做完热身。

Nike is considering pulling its two-year-old Fuelband device out of the competition ahead of Apple’s entry into the market later this year. Following a report on tech news site CNET, Nike confirmed it was laying off staff in its digital sports team and refused to commit to future devices, although it insisted Fuelband remained an “important” part of its business.
在苹果(Apple)今年晚些时间进场之前,耐克(Nike)正考虑砍掉两岁大的Fuelband设备,从而退出可穿戴设备市场的竞争。科技新闻网站CNET发表一篇相关报道后,耐克证实正在裁减数字运动团队员工,并拒绝承诺未来会发布新品,尽管它坚称Fuelband仍是其业务的“重要”组成部分。

Health-tracking gadgets from the likes of Nike, Fitbit, and Jawbone measure how far the wearer walks or runs in a day, the vigour of a workout and the quality of their sleep. Such devices have been tipped as the next big thing in technology after the smartphone, yet some think Apple will trounce them all when it launches its iWatch.
耐克、Fitbit和Jawbone等公司生产的健身追踪器能测算佩戴者一日行走或奔跑的距离、锻炼消耗的体力以及睡眠质量。有人预测这类设备是继智能手机之后科技领域的下一类流行产品,不过也有人认为在苹果发布iWatch之后,上述产品将全部被打败。

Sources familiar with Nike’s plans say it will focus on making apps instead of the higher-priced but lower-margin Fuelband hardware, after building an online community of 20m.
熟悉耐克计划的消息人士透露,在建立一个2000万人的网络社群后,耐克将集中精力开发各种应用(app),而不是价格高但利润低的Fuelband设备。

The company’s decision is complicated by the longstanding partnership and board relationships between Apple and Nike. Tim Cook, Apple's chief executive, has served on Nike’s board since 2005, and in 2006 the companies announced a partnership with the Nike+iPod product.
耐克与苹果的长期合作以及董事会关系,让它的决定变得复杂化。苹果首席执行官蒂姆•库克(Tim Cook)从2005年起担任耐克董事会成员,苹果公司于2006年宣布与耐克合作生产Nike+iPod产品。(FT)
