Walkthroughs are an essential part of software delivery. While most designers will argue that good design doesn’t need a walkthrough, chances are, if you’re in the software tech space, you’ll encounter one sooner or later.
At Wave, we try to limit the number of walkthroughs we present to our users and if we somehow *have* to hold their hand through a process, we try to keep it short and sweet. Last month, I worked on a walkthrough for one of our core products that is set to be released soon - keep an eye out for it!
While I was designing mine, I really wished more people had documented walkthroughs. So here’s me doing my part!
Nike Fuel is a universal currency of energy. The Nike Fuel band is a sleek sports-accelerometer-equipped band that tracks your everyday movement to give you a pulse on how much movement you’re getting in a day. You set your goal for the day and you strive to meet it. Up your goal to increase your motivation, connect with Facebook (of course) to compete against friends, and get trophies for completing goals! I’ve had the Nike Fuel band for a little over a year and I love it! It’s been great at keeping me motivated and has me going on midnight runs if I haven’t reached my goal for the day.
The walkthrough itself starts at a great point in the process - I’m excited about this cool new gadget and I’m ready to go, but my fuel band is charging. So OK, I’ll click through your slides to see what I can do with this thing. Each slide starts with a question and proceeds to succinctly answer it, nice! And it all wraps up nicely with a call to action to download the free mobile app to sync on the go.
If you’re on the market for a health band, go with this one. The FitBit sucks and is honestly a little ugly.
