    Love it

    • Written by from Oceanside

    Absolutely love my UP band. It's stylish, comfy, and tracks my steps, work outs, sleep patterns, etc. The smart alarm is pretty cool too, wasn't sure it would actually wake me up but it does. Also like the weekly total steps and comparisons it gives me. All my friends are wanting one now because I am always bragging about it. Very cool and insightful lil tracker.

    On the negative side (why missing one star) the lil cap that comes off is waaaay too easy to lose. They should sync via blue tooth. Also, the small size is like .01 cm too small and sticks out the tiniest bit, and catches on my clothes and body when putting on lotion etc. Also, wish it did a little more with calorie tracking and comparisons as far as food input. I synch with my fitnesspal app since that app limits my calories and they work together but sometimes the syncing gets off and it would be nice to only use the UP band.

    Slightly more than just a bracelet.

    I'll start of this review with a quick about me. Age 18. Male. Pretty active lifestyle. According to my band I average 10,000 steps per day.

    I bought the UP band for a few reasons. 1. I like the idea of technology becoming increasingly intertwined with daily life, especially in relation to personal health/well-being. 2. The UP is more comfortable and looks nicer than other comparable products (Fuel, Bit, etc.) 3. I like the idea of wearing a bracelet, but most are tacky (currently it is the only wrist accessory I wear).

    Price point is meh, simply because it matches the Nike Fuel and FitBit.
    Astethically the UP far surpasses competition, it is slimmer and lighter than the Fuel. It feels comfortable after becoming accustomed to the feel. But, Sizing can get a little complicated especially when you are stuck between snug and loose. Jawbone's sizing guide isn't too helpful on this question.

    Functionally it works great, having a ten-day battery is a HUGE benefit to the UP. It is hard to check back the band's accuracy when it comes to number of steps, but the sleep tracking feature is amazingly accurate. Please! Calibrate your Band! This makes a big differences in determining step count throughout the day.

    The UP band is a Motivator! This is probably the most significant feature or I guess result of owning the UP band. Knowing that the UP is tracking all of your steps really encourages more activity, and more sleep. That's a huge benefit for people who are looking to improve their well-being.

    It doesn't do bluetooth, which I speculate a later generation will probably have built in.
    Having to manually put the band in sleep mode is a small hassle that sometimes results in sleep not being tracked.
    Water resistant not waterproof meaning no swimming, but it can do showers and such. I always take mine off before any water related activity.

    The UP App for iPhone is a little clunky and can definitely use uprages for usability. But the data is displayed neatly and it is easy to find and show others.

    People always ask about my UP band. It is a really good product that I would encourage anyone to buy. But it is not a necessity by anymeans and could definitely use some upgrades.

    Sleep better, train better, feel better

    • Written by from Stamford

    I am new to the fitness tracking and training world. The Jawbone UP made it easy for me to get a handle on managing my diet, learning how active (or inactive) I am and motivated me to do better. So far I have had my UP for 4 weeks and have lost 8 pounds and loved every minute of it!

    A great buy and one of the best investments i've made. The one feature I wish it had was the ability to track your weight and integrate with wi-fi scales or allow you to calculate body fat percentages (like the fit-bit does).

    Overall would definitely recommend it to anyone interested. It's a better value than the Nike+ Fuel band with the sleep on its own!

    Much better than expected

    • Written by from Mount Sterling

    Have to say, loving this device so far. The sleep and activity tracking are very very accurate. Device is light to the point if forgetting about it. Also hooked in the vibration alarm. Lot to offer in the package. Couldn't stay with fitbit, kept losing the device and just didnt seem as user friendly.

    Best total package available on the market today.

    It's not perfect yet, but this band has been a wonderful pedometer (I've done many tests to see if it over or under counts), a great sleep tracker, consistently accurate.

    I actually do track my food and, though it needs a few improvements, it's driven me to eating healthier and being more aware of what I'm putting in my body.

    I love the gentle armband alarm and the inactivity reminder.

    Not perfect yet, but Jawbone has stood behind it's Customer Service and Product Research.
