Jawbone UP

jawboneMy boss got this really cool Jawbone UP wristband that tracks how you sleep, move and eat—then helps you use that information through an app to make you feel your best. It’s available for $129.99 on their online store. A fun way to stay healthy.


  1. I was thinking of getting one instead of Nike Fuel Band, which normalises the data and displays the activity as “energy points”, I believe.
    The Fuel Band would require less effort but to get most out of your Jawbone it’s useful to log your meal intake, which not everyone gets around to do. Would be awesome if it could just scan bar codes, or does the phone app already does that?

    • Yes, you can scan barcodes of the food you eat which actually makes it easy to log details of your meals.

      “We’ve made tracking what you eat or drink quick and easy, with the flexibility to go as light or deep as you want. This can be as simple as using a photo, or as detailed as capturing all the information in a nutrition label. You can select a picture from the UP gallery of food items, or snap your own; scan a barcode or type in to search our food database; or create your own items, entering how many calories, fats, proteins, and carbohydrates you ate. Rather than focusing only on calories, UP encourages you to eat a healthy and balanced diet by mapping the foods you log to daily percentages based on USDA recommendations.”
