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 review

 

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

Jawbone's revamped Up is tougher, comfy, and insightful

 

For $129.99, the redesigned Jawbone Up is now more durable and offers personal fitness and well-being suggestions.

The ; 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

 

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...

Review: Jawbone Up

 

Re-designed and re-launched, the Jawbone Up is a rubbery thing you wear on your wrist that works in concert with a smartphone app to track your activity, sleeping habits and meals.

Delightfully handsome, and comes in a variety of colors. Long battery life means you won’t always be charging. Despite our efforts at drowning, dropping and generally smacking around, it stood up to every abuse.

Syncing is a chore. Sleep tracking could be better. Those replacement caps really ought to be free.

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 fitness band review

 

Can a $99 rubber wristband inspire owners to move more, sleep better, and eat smarter?

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

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 you sleep and eat better, and make you more stylish to...

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 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....
