Jawbone’s new wristband helps to tune “Up” your health

Jawbone Up wristband

Accessory maker Jawbone has developed a new wristband called "Up" to encourage health and wellness. Not only does it looks fashionable, but Up also incorporates hardware and software system, as well as sensors to monitor your lifestyle.

Jawbone has recently unveiled Up, wristband with hardware and software system that can track your lifestyle – eating, sleeping and movements – and give a reading on your general health. About the size of the popular Livestrong strap, Up contains sensors that can intuitively track your activities, while a smartphone app collects the data on a regular basis and get feedback with regards to improving workouts, eat habits and sleep patterns.

However, note that Jawbone’s Up is not a sickness-prevention accessory, but a lifestyle gadget designed to encourage wellness. According to the company, Up is designed to be trendy and as a slip-in-on-and-forget wristband. The product is said to ship later this year for iOS and Android devices, though no pricing details has been announced yet.
