Jawbone UP health monitoring bracelet and iOS app available again

Jawbone just launched a (sort of) new bracelet accessory called UP that plugs into your iPhone's 3.5mm jack to document exercise and sleep habits. The iOS companion app also allows users to track what they're eating, and combine all of the data to provide tailored health tips, and even correlate everything with your current mood.

What makes the Jawbone Up only sort of new is that it was actually released last year, then quickly clawed it back due to battery issues. To show they've gone back to the drawing board and improved everything, Jawbone put together a video of their testing and design process. We talked with the Jawbone guys back at CES about UP, if you're looking for a bit more context.

Jawbone Up is going for $129.99, and is available in a few different sizes and colors. Any takers? Who bought one when they were originally available?

Jawbone UP health monitoring bracelet and iOS app available again


Solid idea, I hope the bugs are worked out! I love my Jambox and my Jawbone Era! Looking forward to some reviews I might consider one.

I bought one the first time out and "battery issues" doesn't really get at the problems. The sync functionality was clunky and inconsistent. The it just stopped working a week and a half after I bought it. They were very good about refunding all of my money though. If they could work out the bugs and do a wireless BT 4.0 sync, it might be worth the money.

I wish some of these wristbands could implement a pulse sensor as well as all the other features it have.
I guess there's a reason I must have a strap around my chest, but I wish it was around my wrist instead...
