Jawbone UP2 Review

Key features

Jawbone UP2 is a mid-range fitness tracker that is able to accurately track your steps and sleep. Priced at around USD99.99, this device is good value for money and comes with all the features that you expect in a device like this. The battery life of this product is 7 days between charges and thanks to some updates made by Jawbone, this device more than fulfils your fitness requirements.

Introduction

Jawbone UP2 was launched after Jawbone UP24 and is a cheaper alternative to its predecessor. It offers basic activity monitoring and accurately counts your steps and sleep. The design has undergone some changes and this device looks sleeker and is more comfortable to wear. The only issue is with the design of the charger because you need some effort to connect it to your laptop. The compatible apps make using this device a delightful experience and analyzing data on this device is easy. The Smart Coach feature of this device offers you tips after analyzing your fitness data. The food logging feature helps you log meals and the inbuilt food database also logs restaurant menus. The home screen is comprehensive and offers you information you need.

How accurate is it ?

Jawbone UP2 is a tracker that you wear on the wrist and as a result, it offers the most accurate motion data. This is because it uses an accelerometer to guess the number of steps you have taken. It is, however, a good device when you need to collect data during activity bursts. Accurate sleep tracking is absolutely possible and this device doesn't go wrong here. Overall, the accuracy is more than adequate and compares with the best products in this domain.

How long does it take to charge it ?

The battery takes about an hour to get fully charged. Charging is done using a proprietary cable that clips at the back of the device using a magnet. The charging can be done by connecting the charger to your PC or laptop. However, the charging cable design makes it difficult to connect to your laptop. The other small issue with the charger is that you need to carry it with you if you are travelling.

How long does its battery last ?

Jawbone UP2 is powered by a 38mAh rechargeable battery that, as per the manufacturer and the tests conducted, lasts for up to 7 days. This is better than the FitBit activity trackers.

Is it waterproof ?

Jawbone UP2 is a flash-proof device and can be worn when you are, say, washing the dishes. One of the misses of this product is that it is not waterproof at all.

Conclusion: Should I buy it ?

If you are looking for advanced fitness tracking, Jawbone UP2 does need some improvement. However, the basics are in place and more than adequate. Sleep monitoring using the device is a breeze and the smart alarm is one of the best features of this device. The data tracking approach is unique and the design is comfortable.

  • The Good :
    Accurate sleep and activity tracking, superb app and massive battery life of 7 days
  • The Bad :
    Design is good but not elegant, sleep tracking and mode switching is a little difficult, no heart rate monitoring and no waterproofing
Our score:
4 / 5
