This device is excellent. I have had mine nearly a year and have no issues with it at all. The app is a jewel of design. The GUI is uniquely intuitive and provides a wealth of beautifully organised cool looking data. Goals can be set, and trends observed. According to ‘The Gadget Show’ the steps measurement was the most accurate of devices tested and I agree with that. Sleep and quality of sleep is also measured giving a previously unseen insight into yourself at rest.
The nutrition part of the app measures calories used, compared to calories consumed. There is a picture library, barcode scanner, and it also links to your phone camera so you can take your own food photos. I found it so motivational that I lost 20 pounds! That’s got to worth the price of the UP alone. Finally, the design is light, unobtrusive and discreet. I chose black but if you want to shout, red is available. All in all, a very neat and functional device.
The best thing about the Jawbone UP is that it makes looking after yourself easier. It has excellent integration with other apps and it's actually quite satisfying plugging it into my iphone to sync. I think there's a new one out that sync's via bluetooth as well.
I've had mine a while and use it to track mood, food and activity - the food database is a brilliant timesaver.
My first wristband stopped working after a few months so I got in touch with their customer service team - who were EXCELLENT. Replaced it immediately and didn't wait for me to return the faulty one.
This wristband is SO much better than the other similar products out there. It is so light you forget you're wearing it, the iPhone App is so well designed you'd think Apple designed it themselves and best of all it syncs with loads of other fitness websites too (e.g. Runkeeper). Sure, it doesn't have Bluetooth but you don't notice that after about a day given all the plus points for the UP. Highly, highly recommended !!
