Jawbone UP

 

The Jawbone UP tracks personal health and fitness very thoroughly in a stellar mobile app for iOS and Android, but it's not the best fitness tracker we've tested. A few unique features do give it special appeal, though.

Excellent and wide-ranging ability to track metrics for personal health. Comfortable. Includes a vibration alarm with a few unique functions. Gorgeous, well-designed iPhone and Android apps.

For iOS and Android only; doesn't work with personal computers. No data readouts on band itself. Doesn't sync with other devices such as connected scales or heart rate monitors. No wireless syncing. Not discreet to wear.

What's Missing and Conclusions The latest gadgets in the personal fitness market add a heart rate monitor directly on the device (no chest strap needed). I recently tested the Basis fitness watch ($199) , which has this feature. A feature such as this...

Jawbone Up

 

Last year, Jawbone's original UP was one of the first wristbands to track your general fitness and health, but was plagued by poor design. Now, the company is back with the second version of the UP, only this time, it's facing a more crowded market....

Jawbone Up review (2012): a reboot and a shot at redemption

 

Jawbone has addressed many of the issues that plagued the original Up, but $130 is a steep asking price for a stylish pedometer and mediocre health-tracking app.

Improved durability ; Excellent battery life ; Feature-packed app

No wireless syncing ; App feels half-baked ; Sleep tracking is inconsistent at best

One year ago, we thought the Up was done for, but Jawbone refused to simply roll over and give up. We've got to give the company credit for going back to the drawing board, redesigning the band and its companion app and addressing all of the most...

Jawbone Up ( Medium, red)

 

Design Much of the Jawbone Up's appeal lies in its groundbreaking design. The Up is essentially a complex bundle of electronics, a battery, a motion sensor, and flexible circuit boards, all stuffed into a twistable rubber skin.

The Jawbone Up is comfortable, durable, and effortless to wear. Its mobile app is intuitive and presents data well.

The Jawbone Up lacks a screen. It only syncs with iPhones and some Android devices, so there's no other way to view your fitness data. It connects via a less convenient wired connection.

The new Jawbone Up is comfortable and durable, but limited support means this gadget won't make sense for many phone users.

Jawbone UP Review (2012)

 

Jawbone's UP is back for 2012 , and like that gym membership you signed up for and only used once, it's begging you to give it a second chance. The original UP launched last year to rave reviews, but the shine quickly faded as owners struggled with...

The shine quickly rubbed off the original UP, but all signs point to Jawbone having learned its lesson. The new hardware feels sturdier than before, and the more stringent tolerances mean we now have no qualms about wearing UP in the shower or pool....

Review: Relaunched Jawbone Up is a fashionable fitness tracker

 

The original Jawbone Up was a disaster. But the re-released model fixes the problems with its predecessor, and combines with the companion iOS app for a very nice and stylish fitness tracker.

Problems with original product have been addressed and fixed. ; App is nicely organized and provides a lot of data.

Can't connect using Bluetooth. ; App is the only way to view data, there's no website option to track progress.

Despite the Up’s flaws, I really like it. I’m convinced that next year’s Up will include Bluetooth, which will make it significantly better than this year’s iteration. I’m optimistic that Jawbone successfully fixed the issues that marred the original...

Review: Jawbone Up

 

The Jawbone Up has great potential as a health and wellness gadget. And it worked fabulously -- until it stopped working entirely.

Effective tool for monitoring your footsteps, health habits, sleep patterns. Attractive on the wrist. Charts and graphs are fun and addictive

Currently doesn’t work, a complete hardware fail. Social interaction features are dull. Hardware interface is too simple to be useful

The Up wristband has promise as a fitness tracker, but we can't recommend it until Jawbone can make it stop bricking.

Jawbone Up fitness band review

 

You're fat, lazy, and not getting enough sleep. At least that's what the consumer electronics industry seems to be saying with the recent deluge of fitness devices announced. In the last month alone, we've seen the introduction of...

Waterproof ; No risk of losing the wristband ; Sync and view data wherever you are ; Smart alarms work as advertised

Meal tracking is a joke ; App software is clearly a 1.0 work ; Data management not as fun or robust as Fitbit ; You'll lose the cap eventually

Both the Up and Fitbit Ultra can inspire owners to move more, sleep better, and eat smarter by making them consumers of their own health
