The Jawbone UP wristband went back to the engineering and testing lab, and finally after graduating 3 million hours of testing, it is back.
It works with an iPhone companion app, and is a general health and fitness tool. It tracks your steps during the day, monitors your sleep and the tiny motions during your sleep and even allows you to snap pictures of your daily meal to better understand your eating habits.
The iPhone app then analyzes all of that data showing you the periods of light and deep sleep, and wakes you up at a point where there is no crude interruption of your sleep and you feel fully refreshed.
During the day, the UP tracks times when you are active and idle, and not just that but tells you how intense your activity was. Calories burned and distance travelled are also calculated.
The wristband itself is made out of medical-grade rubber and it is splashproof (but not waterproof). It last around ten hours on a single charge. At launch, the Jawbone up will come in eight colors and three sizes. The release date is today and you can buy it for $129.99 from Apple, AT&T, and Best Buy.
