Jawbone Up2 review


Good software makes fitness trackers great. That's why we've always loved Jawbone's bands: the Up app remains the best all-around fitness software available, and the Up2 tracker is the most full-fledged-yet-affordable way to access it. The only thing...

The Up2 provides simple activity and automatic sleep tracking in a slim and fashionable design. The band has good battery life and can be worn in the shower. The Jawbone mobile app includes smart coaching and can be paired with many popular third-party...

It doesn't have a display to quickly check fitness progress and there's no heart-rate tracking. The sleep tracking tends to overestimate and the band can't be worn while swimming.

A better fit and superior software make the redesigned Jawbone Up2 our favorite everyday fitness band.

Jawbone UP2


The Jawbone UP2 fitness tracker looks great on the wrist and comes with a neat app that actually gives you recommendations about your lifestyle, but it's lacking in features compared with the competition.

Stylish design. Comfortable. Helpful Smart Coach feature.

No real display. Finicky tap input mechanism. Not swim-proof.

A Better UP, but Missing FeaturesThe Jawbone UP2 is better than the older versions of the UP bands, but compared with similar fitness trackers, it's light on features. The UP3 is better, but you can get more for your money with another tracker. If...

Jawbone Up2 review: a great basic fitness tracker


"Fitbit, Apple Watch, or Jawbone. What should I get?" This question, a real one my mom asked me a couple weeks ago, nearly made me launch into an hour-long conversation about wearables. I...

Small, comfortable design ; Great Jawbone software ; Long battery life

Not completely waterproof ; Fiddly clasp

Jawbone Up review (2012)


Anyone who bought one of Jawbone's much-hyped Up fitness bands last year found themselves an unwitting participant in a beta test. The brand-new platform promised to get you up and exercising, help...

Good-looking bracelet ; Robust, powerful software ; Alarm clock feature is fantastic ; Long-lasting battery

Requires a lot of upkeep ; Band is a little thick and clunky ; Syncing is cumbersome ; Still iOS-only for the moment

Are you dealing in calories and carbohydrates, or points and badges?

Jawbone Up2 Review


With a refined design and the addition of Smart Coach, the Jawbone Up2 is a smarter version of the company's original band. It gives you just what you need in order to assess your fitness at the most basic level, and goes a step further, with Smart...

Lightweight, modern design ; Bold, organized app ; Smart Coach gives easy-to-follow advice.

Difficult to fasten ; Doesn't automatically enter sleep mode ; Wonky smart alarm.

The $99 Jawbone Up2 tracks activity, monitors sleep and gives you healthy advice via its app's Smart Coach, but you may want to consider the competition before buying.

Jawbone UP2 wristband activity tracker


Record your own daily activity, and compete against your mates

Slim and light design ; Impressive app interface ; Smart coach and social feed are great motivators

Buckle a little awkward for us ; Logging food can be a chore ; Best results obtained when wearing it all the time

Jawbone UP2


Jawbone recently introduced a new version of its UP2 activity tracker, which addresses some of the issues I experienced with the first model. Here's how things have changed with the new UP2 and why the score has been reviewed.

Still offers a more insightful ecosystem than rivals ; Battery will get you through a week's use ; Second generation UP2 offers more secure fit

New design not as elegant as UP24 ; Difficult to activate sleep tracking or switch modes ; Difficult to activate sleep tracking or switch modes

Despite its unique approach to analysing your data, Jawbone's design overhaul of the UP2 activity tracker leaves us disappointed.

Jawbone UP2 review: like the UP3 but cheaper


Look good in the day, track every detail during the night with this step-and-sleep lifestyle tracker

Attractive design ; Excellent app ; Detailed sleep tracking

Not waterproof ; Doesn't really do a lot ; Annoying clasp

Jawbone UP2 review


If it was up to Jawbone, everyone would wear an UP2

Sleek, stylish design ; Great app ; Week-long battery life

Terrible charger ; Temperamental touchscreen ; Compatibility issues with Android

A solid product for the money, but seems like a step backwards from last year's UP24.
