Jawbone Up available on Sunday, iPhone fitness accessory to help you live healthier [video]

The highly anticipated iPhone fitness accessory, Jawbone Up, will be available this Sunday. A colorful wrist band with built in sensors and a vibration motor, Jawbone Up is designed to track your eating, sleeping and exercise patterns.

Up is a tool designed to improve your lifestyle and it is designed to work with the iPhone, iPad or iPod touch via an app that can retrieve the information recorded from the wrist band; strangely via the 3.5mm headset jack. The app can then tell you a plethora or information and help you move more, sleep better and eat smarter.

  • Use the UP wristband and iPhone app to track your steps, distance, calories burned, pace, intensity level, active vs inactive time, GPS routes and more.
  • Program your UP wristband to vibrate on your wrist to remind you to move when you've been inactive for too long. You control the interval and timeframe.
  • Put your wristband in sleep mode to automatically track your hours slept, deep vs. light sleep, awake time and overall sleep quality.
  • Replace your noisy alarm clock with UP's silent Smart Alarm; it vibrates on your wrist and intelligently wakes you up at the ideal moment in your natural sleep cycle just before your desired wake time.
  • Say hello to your new food journal. It's as easy snapping a photo and responding to prompts about how each meal makes you feel.
  • UP gets to know you by asking how you feel after each meal. Over time, you can use your responses to help discover which foods make you feel your best.

Up is more than just an accessory and app, it also offers a social network where you can join challenges or set up your own. You can challenge friends to motivate them and yourself to new levels of fitness and health.

The Jawbone Up will be available from Sunday November 6 online as well as in Apple Stores, Target, AT&T and Best Buy. The Jawbone Up Band comes in three sizes and will cost $99. The app is available as a fee download.

1-ya when and how do you charge this? seems like you would have to take it off to charge which would be time that you can not use it. if you use it all night to wake you up, then how do you get through a day? I think this would be something that would be mentioned in the article.
2-also how will this effect battery life on your iphone, which already has a battery issue in iOS5
the article also fails to mention if its BluetoothPlus/Smart.
Sounds like a great product, but the first two questions are HUGE before purchase.

The bracelet charges via opening the end caps and plugging charger to it. It syncs with the iphone via the endcap plugged in the headphone jack. NO BLUETOOTH. So no effect on ios5 battery life( iOS 5.1 fix releasing next week). It has 10 days of battery life so charging it is a non issue for 10 consecutive days.

At merely $0.02 each (Tyvek Wristbands), wristband is very inexpensive and a better solution to monitor your crowds. You can distinguish the patrons by using variety of colors, size, or prints. If you want to go advance, you can ask to insert RFID chips into the wristbands. By using RFID system, you can monitor the level of privilage, inserting credits/ points to the wristbands for purchase, locker access, and identification. This is what Coachella is using for its events.
