NEW YORK (AP) -- Got a Nike FuelBand? You could be due some bucks. Nike is offering a partial refund or gift cards to people who bought FuelBand fitness trackers in the last three and a half years. The move settles a lawsuit that says the products can't accurately tally how many steps a user is taking or how many calories they've burned. A website maintained by Gilardi and Company, a firm that administers settlements, says Nike will give $15 payments or $25 gift cards to people who bought FuelBands between Jan. 19, 2012 and June 17, 2015. Nike and collaborator Apple aren't acknowledging wrongdoing, but they're offering to settle a class action lawsuit against them.
