JawBone releases UP3 and UP MOVE
Fitness band maker JawBone has announced its latest devices, the UP3 and UP MOVE.
JawBone is at the forefront of the fitness band market, with its own JawBone UP24, probably the best device available now. And JawBone is looking to stay at the top with its latest flagship the UP3. The UP3 brings a slew of sensors including a tri-axis accelerometer, temperature sensors and bioimpedance trackers. It is highly analytic as it can track your sleeping patterns as well as use algorithms to identify your workouts. The UP3 is also durable with an anodized aluminium framework, water resistant up to 10 meters and has up to seven days of battery life. The device links up to the UP app in both iOS and Android, bringing also the Smart Coach feature, which provides guidance on reaching your fitness goals based on your current progress. For all the features it has, the UP3 comes in a surprisingly slim package, thanks to the innovation of Yves Behar, one of the leading industrial designers today. With its impressive features, the UP3 is now retailing for $179.99, with only the Black Twist color available with more to come next year.
The UP Move on the other hand is an entry level fitness tracker. It does not come with the full array of sensors as in the UP3 but it is still capable of tracking your steps, exercise and calorie burned. It also has the Smart Coach feature via the Up app for fitness guidance. The UP Move has a unique sleek design, which you can use as a clip-on or a traditional fitness band. It is made out of a nylon-like anodized aluminium with hypoallergenic wristbands. The device is powered by a replaceable coin lithium-ion battery, which has an expected life span of 6 months but eliminates the need for charging. The UP Move retails for $49.99, available in both slim and standard and standard widths with five tracker and clip color combinations.
