Whether you have specific health goals or just want to monitor your stats as you maintain your awesomeness, an activity tracker like the Jawbone UP is perfect for both. Available at Best Buy online and local stores, the Jawbone activity tracker starts at $99 and has several models to choose from. Each is wearable on the wrist, secure yet lightweight and comfortable. They are durable enough to withstand rain, a sweaty workout, even the shower. They both sync wirelessly with smartphones, tablets, and computers giving you access to real-time progress. No more hassle with connecting cords or manually entering data.
Both models accurately track steps taken, calories burned, nutritional intake, activity vs. inactivity, sleep quality and hours of sleep. The Jawbone UP3 has been upgraded from its predecessor with a heart rate monitor and advanced sensors measuring resistance of tissue and blood flow in your wrist to capture your resting heart rate. Smart Coach learns as you use it tuning in to unique patterns while keeping track of your personal data. It then suggests daily goals motivating you to move more, stay hydrated, and sleep better.
The UP app features a customizable dashboard that displays your data easily. The UP app also lets you know when you’ve reached milestones such as so many steps or sticking with an activity for a certain amount of time. Compete and challenge other Jawbone users for extra motivation. Check your stats to see how your progress measures up! The UP3 automatically logs each activity from running to a game of hoops. You’ll be able to access a detailed picture of your calorie burn.
Monitor other parts of your life such as sleep and daily habits such as food and water intake. The Smart Alarm will get you up at the ideal point of your sleep cycle, there’s even a vibrating alarm. Log your food by scanning barcodes or searching the UP database to track nutritional value. There’s even an alert that lets you know when you’ve been sitting too long, reminding you to stay active!
The Jawbone UP activity trackers are designed with fitness and style in mind. While the UP2 has a lot of fantastic features, the UP3 has pushed those standards and set the bar higher. Wear one and go further.
