How Nike FuelBand Users Could Get Money as Part of Class Action Settlement

A class-action lawsuit questions accuracy of the FuelBand by Nike and Apple.

— -- People who own a Nike+ FuelBand may be getting $15 or a $25 Nike gift card if a proposed settlement of a lawsuit over the fitness device's accuracy receives final approval.

Carolyn Levin from Los Angeles is the named plaintiff who filed the lawsuit regarding the device, which was first released in 2012. She says she bought one for herself and eight as gifts. Her lawsuit disputes the claims of the companies that the device "measures each step taken and calorie burned."

"In truth, the Nike+ FuelBand cannot and does not track each calorie burned, or each step taken," her lawsuit states. Levin could not be reached for comment by ABC News.

Nike continues to deny the allegations and any wrongdoing and says it is settling to avoid uncertainties of lengthy litigation.

An Apple store representative told ABC News today that the Nike FuelBand is no longer sold.

A hearing is scheduled for Nov. 4 to determine whether the proposed settlement will be approved.

FuelBand users who agree to the settlement would be required to submit a claim form by Jan. 4, 2016 at or submit it via mail. Those who continue to wish to sue Nike or Apple must submit a form to exclude themselves from the settlement class.

Paul Philips, attorney for the plaintiff, told ABC News that both sides of the case "worked diligently to get the matter resolved."

A spokeswoman for Apple declined to comment to ABC News. Nike did not respond to requests for comment from ABC News.
