I Love My Jawbone (UP)

For my birthday this year (way back in October) I received the incredible gift of a Jawbone. No not the one on your face but one you wear on your wrist.

Like this

Oh what do they do? Well, basically it’s like a really fancy pedometer. EXCEPT, it tracks all of your steps for the day, you can track food with it, log other workouts besides steps, you can sync it to your iphone, connect it to apps, customize it to vibrate when you’ve been idle, set it to track your sleep and set it to wake you up in the morning.

If you are worried you’ll sleep through the alarms, you won’t. You will wake up the person next to you though. Sorry Ryan!

I’m only slighly majorly obsessed with this product. I have no problems wearing it, easy to take on and off, no clips or clasps like a watch. It is never at risk to fall off either. It sits perfectly on your wrist. It’s water proof so I don’t have to take it off, although I do take it off to shower to to go to the pool

Pros:

  • Long battery life. Can go 10 days before needing to be charged. I charge mine once a week for 1 hour.
  • Can get it wet
  • Easy to take on and off
  • Plugs directly into your iphone!
  • Syncs to My Fitness Pal, Run Keeper and many other apps!
  • Tracks sleep and wakes you up
  • Makes you move more with the idle alerts
  • Makes you move more with being excited to see your stats
  • You can set goals like to drink a certain amount of water, it will even remind you throughout the day.

The end cap comes off to plug into your phone or to charge on the computer.

Cons:

  • It doesn’t tell time. This is confusing for me because I wear it on my wrist so I feel like it should. However, I guess this makes it easier to disguise if you wear it with bangle bracelet’s.

Anyone have a Jawbone Up? FitBit? Nike FuelBand? All great ways to track and keep your fitness goals motivating.

  1. I LOVE my fitbit. I don’t like wearing things on my wrists at work, because they hit my desk or keyboard. The fitbit was a good choice for me, since it’s at my hip. Of course, since I’m not a distance runner like you, my step counts are usually MUCH lower 🙂

  2. I got to try the FitBit One and I really liked it, but I use Nike+ for my runs so I’ve been wanting to try the Nike Fuelband… but I also want to try the Jawbone and the FitBit Flex… I wish they had a trial program hahaha.

  3. I love my Pulse, and Brent loves the FB Force… There’s a few new ones on the market I want… I can’t resist these gadgets so I’m sure I’ll be trying those when they come out too 🙂 The one thing I loved about my Jawbone was the battery, like you said. It lasted forever!

  4. I am super interested in the Jawbone and it’s good to hear you like yours! Haven’t splurged on it yet mainly because of the price but I will probably give in at some point.
