Great idea but major quality control issues!

  • Summary: POC is being kind. I would give it negative stars if that was possible. Amazing that the tech media lets Jawbone get away with such poor quality products. I had a similar experience with their pricey BT earbud.
  • Pros: Design, App, Features
  • Cons: Lack of quality.

May have a lot of good features but it is one of the worst products on the market

  • Summary: I have now had 4 UP bands and when it works it is good.  But it doesn't always record all my steps and it I have now had to have it replaced 3 times.  All of my family also had bands and theirs died within a short amount of time.  Jawbone does have good customer service and will replace it after a back and forth test with them, but the replacements aren't any better.
  • Pros: It is easy to wear
  • Cons: battery dies every 3 months

This product is not very poor and unreliable

  • Summary: This product needs a major overhaul in respect to durability.   Both my wife and I bought the Jawbone UP about 18 months ago.   I had to replaced mine three times as within a few months it stopped working.  My wife's ban was replaced once and now it stopped working altogether.   Just got off the phone with Jawbone support and they said their policy had changed and would not replace her band.   The most they could do was offer a 25 percent discount on a new band.
  • Pros: Like the tracking of steps and sleeping habits
  • Cons: Product stops working in a few months. Mine was replaced three times in 15 months. My wife twice and now stopped working.

  • Conclusion: It's a lot better than I thought, it tells me if I'd had enough sleep and gives helpful sites to go to on my phone to benefit my brain and health.

DO NOT BUY - Product prone to fail

jmmccauley63, CNET

  • Summary: This company does not stand behind its products.  I bought a Jawbone Up a little over a year ago and I was an enthusiastic user.  Unfortunately, the Up band stopped working after about 3 months.  After much back-and-forth troubleshooting, I was finally sent a replacement band, which worked fine...for about 9 months.  Again, the band just stopped working.
  • Pros: When it works, it's adequate
  • Cons: It breaks a lot!
