NikeFuel integrated with Game Center on new iPhone 5S

The new iPhone 5S integrates NikeFuel points, part of Nike's gamified fitness tracker that rewards users for staying active through unlockable achievements, it was revealed today during Apple's conference (via The Verge).

The point system is integrated into iPhone's Game Center and makes use of iPhone 5S' M7 motion coprocessor feature which measures the accelerometer, compass and gyroscope to identify user movement. The feature can then tell apps if the user is moving, driving or standing still.

The motion coprocessor can measure motion data even when the device is asleep, and can save its battery life for use by pedometer or other fitness apps that use the accelerometer throughout the day.

Nike recently outed Apple's new smartphone in an announcement for its Nike E2 Prime Performance training arm band. Product details stated the workout device is compatible with both iPhone 5 and 5S.
