Jawbone UP

Live Better. Start Now. Jawbone UP. Track your sleep activity, steps, calorie intake and more with the Jawbone UP wrist sensor and free mobile app. UP gives you meaningful, personalized insights so you can make lasting improvements to your everyday life.

UP is a system that takes a holistic approach to a healthy lifestyle. When people think about being healthy, they think diet and exercise. Many people forget that getting enough sleep is just as important. I can definitely tell the difference in my work when I get enough sleep versus not enough sleep. My favorite feature of Jawbone UP is the sleep tracker. The wristband tracks your movement and sleep in the background. You set your goal for how many hours of sleep you need. I need at least 8 hours of sleep to feel refreshed in the morning. When I wake up, I open my app and it tells me how long I slept, how much light and deep sleep I had, and if I woke up during the night. I also found it interesting to know how fast I fell asleep. It takes less time than I thought!


It is recommended that you take 10,000 steps every day, the equivalent of about 5 miles. The wristband tracks your steps and the percentage of your goal you have reached. If I don’t meet my goal by the end of the work day, I know just how long my evening walk needs to be. The app displays your data, lets you add things like meals and mood, and delivers insights that keep you moving forward.


I found the wristband to be very comfortable to wear. You just put it on and forget about it. It never got in the way of my daily work. And because it’s water resistant, you hardly ever have to take it off. It is not bulky and is the most fashionable fitness wristband on the market. It is very easy to sync your data to your phone as well. After you set up the app, you just plug it in and it automatically syncs.
