Jawbone UP is about as simple as you can get in an activity tracker. This simple device clips onto your clothing and tracks your steps and your calories burned. It can also track your sleep with an optional strap.
Plus you can track your food and drink intake, nutrients and calories with the UP App Food Score. But you can also connect your UP to well known apps like MyFitnessPal (my personal favorite) and MapMyFitness, to name a few.
And although it’s an option, buying a wrist strap is a good investment to us the built in sleep tracker. Sleep is a pretty big deal on how we feel during the day, and even how much we eat, that it’s worth it to find out how much, and the quality of sleep that you are actually getting each night.
On to the UP Reviews
Reviews are pretty positive for the Jawbone UP. It’s roundly liked for it’s affordable price. It’s especially well received for it’s simplicity. And it’s sleep tracker is highly rated, although there are complaints that the tracker is difficult to get out of the clip and put in the band. So quite a few reviewers don’t bother.
Most people like the accompanying app. It really helps users get a handle on their eating and drinking, plus how active they are during the day. Plus like around the face let you know your activity progress for the day. And it’s not very difficult to learn how to use the UP. It can be used right out of the box.
