Jawbone UP Review

The Jawbone UP Fitness Tracker is a relatively new device used to keep track of one’s fitness levels and intensities. The device is designed to resemble a bracelet that is connected directly to the Jawbone UP app, which is compatible with both iOS and Android devices. With quick and easy Bluetooth syncing, this app and wristband are the perfect combination for keeping one’s fitness goals on track.

 

The Jawbone UP band is void of any clasps, ties or hinges, giving it a sleek and comfortable design for both men and women. The band is made of a flexible, rubber material that you mold to fit your wrist nicely. There are only three sizes and several colors to pick from. Your size can be determined on the product’s website.

 

There is a small, square tip on one end and a small cap-like tip on the other, both of which appear to be nothing more than a decoration, but that would be false. The small, square tip has three different functions. To switch between day and night modes, the user must hold down the button for a fair amount of time. However if you press the button twice & hold shortly this activates the timer, which can be used to record quick naps or extended workout sessions. The cap-side end of the band has some different functions. This end contains a well-concealed jack, which plugs into to any iOS or Android device, which is used for syncing the wristbands records to the Jawbone UP app on your device. Not only that, but the jack is also used for charging the band, so if you are an avid user there should be no problems regarding battery life.

 

The Jawbone UP App is a very well designed and user friendly with little to no complexities. You enter your age, weight, height, goals, etc. and then the wristband/app keeps track of your success. Each day you can set up goals for yourself on the app. When you reach those goals, a large arrow and smiling animations appear to congratulate your success. You can also incorporate food into the mix, but the app is not designed as a proper calorie counter. The preplanned meals are limited and tracking your own meals can be a hassle unfortunately.

 

However, a very unique factor to the Jawbone UP App is that the app can track your quality of sleep. Take this information at face value though because there is no real evidence other than the wristband’s technology. The way this works is the phone keeps track of how often you toss and turn, wake up, have light sleep and REM sleep, etc. Each morning then, when you sync and switch the band back to daytime mode, the app will show you a graph that represents how much sleep you got and the quality of it. But with no information on how to improve, this is more an interesting feature than a helpful one. 

  • The Good :
    App animation; Comfortable / sleek band design; User friendly; iOS/android compatibility
  • The Bad :
    Limited food tracking ability; Limited band sizes
Our score:
3.5 / 5
