Jawbone Fitness Device Takes a Big Leap with Advanced Activity Monitoring Features

November 12, 2014, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

The much-awaited holiday launch of gadgets and technologies is around the corner. Fitness wearable providers Jawbone is all set for their November announcements, lining up two new wearables ahead of the holidays — the Up3 wristband and the Up Move wearable.

Up3 is an advanced version of the Up24 band that brings in resting heart rate monitoring for the first time in a Jawbone wearable.

Up3 comes with accelerometer, bioimpedance sensor and skin and ambient light sensors and packs in a host of features related to fitness tracking.

That includes REM sleep tracking, resting heart rate monitoring, Advanced Activity monitoring and a new feature called the Smart Coach.

Smart Coach can guide you through your fitness regimen by recognizing the activities, be it running, tennis, basketball, cycling or anything else.

The data monitored can be analyzed via the Up App on Android/iOS smartphones. Up3 is available in shades of silver and black with prices starting at $180.

The Up Move is the midget fitness tracking wearable that skips the Advanced Activity monitoring features and heart rate tracking. But it does encompass the normal fitness tracking by monitoring steps, calories and sleep. You could also set up fitness goals and dieting charts on your Up App with an integration by means of Bluetooth.

Up Move is also packed with a tiny LED display that reveals information such as time, previous sleep details, etc by just tapping over it.

The design of Up Move is what makes it quite unique as the wearable doesn’t fall exactly under the wristband category.

The clip attached to the wearable can be hooked up anywhere and there’s the optional wristband for those who prefer wrapping it around the wrist.

Up Move also features Smart Coach which makes it a good deal for $50. It is expected to hit the stores by the end of this month whereas Up3 wristband is set to debut across the stores this holiday season.
