    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.

    Love the UP & UP24 BUT...

    • Written by from Belfast

    I have had the UP for just under a year and have recently upgraded to the UP24. The product is great and works and described hence the 5 stars. Now for the but. When upgrading to the UP24 I went for the orange version. I returned this 2 days later and exchanged it for the black band again.

    There was 2 reasons for this:
    1, the orange band only has red LEDs in it, which are very blurred and make it hard to tell the difference from the shaped indicators (the moon and star.) Both the black and orange UP24 bands have lost the multi coloured LED indicator lights the are in the first UP band, The black UP24 band has a green led and a red LED in the orange band only.

    2, After only one day of use I notice that orange UP24 band was getting a bit dirty. It did clean of with a wet wipe, but with the black band this wasn't as noticeable. This is important as you are basically going to wear the band all day, every day.

    I am now using the black UP24 band and love it. I do think the upgrade was worth it. Love the bluetooth syncing, which now allows the bands app to send me reminders and motivation notifications throughout out the day.

    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.

    Nice product

    • Written by from New York

    I really love this band. It's alarm and sleep tracking is nearly non-existant in the competition. Same goes for alerting you when you're idle for too long. Sadly I'm a really deep sleeper so the vibration alarm didn't wake me up any day in the last two months. Consider this before you're buying it. Although looking at reviews looks like it's only me who can't wake up.

    Love it

    • Written by from CINCINNATI

    Have been using it since November 2012 - had one replacement in November 2013. Works great and gives me the information I need, not just for sleep but for calorie count and nutritional values so I can make better choices each day.

    Disappointed

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