UP by Jawbone combines a wristband and app for your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch that together help you better understand how you sleep, move, and eat—so you can make more-informed lifestyle decisions and feel your best.
How to Pick Your Size
Wrap a string snugly around your wrist. Mark on the string where the two ends cross.
Measure the string from one end to the marked place and following the size guide to determine which UP Band is right for you.
SM = 5.5 to 6.0 inches/ 14.0 to 15.5 CM
MD = 6.0 to 7.0 inches/ 15.5 to 18.0 CM
LG = 7.0 to 8.0 inches/ 18.0 to 20.0 CM
Track your sleep
Small and comfortable to wear all day and night, UP senses your micro-movements while you sleep and uses advanced algorithms to determine how many hours you slept, how long it took you to fall asleep, time spent in light versus deep sleep, and how many times you woke during the night.
Track your activity
Wearing UP captures a complete picture of your day, so you don't have to guess how active you are. UP tracks your steps, distance, calories burned, and time spent active versus idle.
Track your food and drink
UP's mobile app lets you log what you eat and drink and get as detailed as you want. Take a photo of your food, scan a barcode, browse the UP image gallery, or search the ingredient database. UP also assists you in tracking calories, fats, carbohydrates, protein, sugar, fiber, and sodium.
UP simply and beautifully visualizes your information so you can understand the meaning behind your data at a glance. It also delivers personalized insights and clear tips to help you achieve your goals.
UP helps you set daily goals and tracks your progress over time. It also lets you set helpful alarms and reminders. You can set a Smart Alarm to silently wake you at the ideal moment in your sleep cycle to help you wake up feeling refreshed. You can also set Idle Alerts to remind you to move when you've been sitting too long.

Ratings & Reviews
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 gre at 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. …

Probably one of the coolest pedometers ever
Way more than a pedometer -- it tracks my sleep, REM cycles and of course, steps. What's cooler is that it also tracks my progres s against my friends. It is definitely a motivator for a healthier lifestyle. …

Much better than expected
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. …

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 step s 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
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, lear ning 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! …

Lost 15 lbs. Works well for me.
Have used mine continuously since December 2012. Good for people who have an n=1 (experiment of one) mentality.
Pro: it is a g reat device to keep track of your week to week or month to month activity. Used as a longitudinal tool, it is quite effective. Also, good to see the correlation between sleep and activity. It has been helpful to look at my sleep patterns and to try to improve my sleep habits. Created "Team" with my wife (who also has one) that promotes competition/accountability. Easy to use and easy to wear. Battery life is very good. Build quality and durability has been good. Finally, looks ok and it is a conversation starter.
Con: Distance accuracy. But of course a device on your wrist is not going to be able to judge distance very well. But my focus has been on my total activity day to day, week to week etc. and for that it is fine. I think that an ankle device would do a better job with distance. Wish that the software had a journalling and weight tracking option. (Recent update brought in ability to sync to other apps, but I have not used yet). Have to be careful to not lose the cap when syncing. Finally, can take on odors when cooking, grilling etc.
Note: Might be more helpful if I used the food tracking option, but have not. …

It isn't totally waterproof but it is water resistant. You can shower, do the dishes, wear it in the rain, etc without worrying about it but I wouldn't swim with it.

Yes you can. You can press the button twice quickly to indicate it's recording a workout.
From J awbone's FAQ's:
Will it work if I cycle, do yoga, or other non-step-based workouts?
The UP app allows you to log the duration and effort level of a variety of different workout types, so you get credit and estimated caloric burn for non-step-based activities. Additionally, the UP band has a Stopwatch mode that lets you "tag" the start and end of your activity Once you've synced your band, you can enter the details of your workout. …
