Conclusion: Reviewers rave over the Jawbone UP24's clever alarm, in-depth sleep tracking and holistic fitness app. They also like some unique features like the mood tracking app, which some reviewers say makes it seem as if the UP24 knows them better than they know themselves.
Pros: Smart sleep technology, Excellent mobile fitness app, Mood-tracking app, Movement reminders
Cons: No desktop or Web app, Sleep mode not automatic
Summary: Though smartwatches and Google Glass have made for some bold and interesting products, you could easily argue that the best wearables so far have been fitness trackers. But are these US$100+ accessories worth the price of admission?
Conclusion: Bluetooth connectivity certainly brings a big advance over the previous UP. It’s incredibly handy have that tracking information in real-time time. Even with this and the additional software enhancements, however, the UP24 doesn’t match up to the sort of informational firepower available with much...
Summary: The smartband market has been around for a couple of years but it’s still considered to be a niche product and mostly geared towards the sports and health conscious crowd. Still, we find very practical and convincing use for it.
Summary: The Jawbone UP24 is one of the latest fitness trackers to hit the market along with Nike and Fitbit. I have previously reviewed the Fitbit Flex , which we really liked, but today’s focus is all about the UP24. The UP24 is the newest addition to Jawbone’s fitness line up.
Summary: The Up 24 is a good-looking fitness band that does everything you could want. The problem is in the execution. The lack of screen is a deal-breaker, and it doesn’t even keep the price down, which you’d expect.
Conclusion: Comfortable, sleek, mid-priced, and with great sleep features, the Jawbone UP24 could be the activity tracker for you, as long as you don't mind mobile-only access to your data, and a few other downsides.
Pros: Thin, sleek, comfortable activity tracker. Measures deep sleep and light sleep. Connects with many other apps for sports, health, and calorie-counting. Beautiful app.
Cons: Requires a smartphone. Sleep mode not automatic. Very basic calorie-counting features. Ends of band don't sit flat. No display. No altimeter. A bit pricey.
Stay fit: Jawbone Up24 and Nike+ FuelBand SE review
14 February 2014
Excerpt: There was a time in my life when I recorded every piece of food I ate and every step I took. I kept a meal and exercise journal — an actual journal — before I had one on my computer. Once online tools like LoseIt! and MyFitnessPal became popular, I tried a slew of those.
Pros: Comfortable, minimalist design, Clean, bold app UI, Small cards that give you advice to be healthier, Sporty product and UI design, Fuel points simplify data, Athletes will love competitive sharing features
Cons: Slow Bluetooth connectivity at times, No Android app yet, List of workouts is limited, Sessions feature doesn't add much, Sleep tracking rewards you for being restless, Lack of vibration alerts
