    Dirty UP 24 Persimmon (orange)

    • Written by from Bicester

    As someone detailed before me, having the red-orange led on an orange band makes it hard to ready and blurry looking like. Not only that but this band gets dirty very fast and the alcohol cleaning method does not work. actually it is not dirt but the the orange colour is fading away making the band look discoloured brown dirty. disgusting to wear on a contrast with a white shirt.

    Really a bad product

    • Written by from Greensboro

    I have several issues with this band. To begin, I chose the Up24 because of its sleep tracking and alarm, which is a great idea for anyone interested in their sleep patterns and in waking during a light sleep cycle. However, the technology used isn't very accurate and the alarm doesn't do its job waking me, which could be due to either the vibration being too weak or to inaccurate sleep cycles assessments. I've read a review by someone whose career is in sleep medicine. She wrote that there is no way that the gyroscope could be accurate at assessing a person's sleep cycles, and that this is not the technology used by her sleep clinic.

    The worst part of the Up24, however, is that it stops working. That's right. You read it correctly. The band just stops. When this happens, you have to do a somewhat complicated reset, which means all the data stored in the band is now lost. Could this be an isolated occurrence? Could it just be my band? Possibly, but it's not probable. I've read a number of reviews online where this is a common complaint. Ontop of this, my fiancee also ownss an Up24. We got them at the same time, and hers malfunctions just like mine. Usually the reset works. Like another reviewer here, though, mine completely failed after about 2 months. Even the reset fails to work. Note that I've not been rough on it, and it has not been exposed to water. It's just not working anymore.

    If I had to do it all over again, I would choose a different product, or maybe even wait for technology to catch up to the wearables segment. Due to my experience with the Up24, though, I will never get another product from Jawbone. It seems that, as was the problem with their first version, the Up, Jawbone released a product without ensuring its durability. This is a sign of a company concentrating on profits, rather than on customer satisfaction. Once a company shows these colors, I write them off. I'd rather pay more for a product from a company that shows it cares about customer satisfaction, a company that stands by its products, because the products it produces are top quality. Jawbone's Up24, unfortunately, is not top quality.

    I went through 2 of these bands in less than a month. Both died after 10 days of use extremely disappointed in the product!
