Jawbone today announced UP3, an advanced multi-sensor activity tracker that captures heart rate, detailed sleep stages and automatic workouts through a multi-sensor bracelet. The top-of-the-line, $180 health tracker uses new algorithms, a tri-axis accelerometer, sophisticated bioimpedance sensors, and skin and ambient temperature sensors to deliver personal insights.
Designed by leading industrial designer, Yves Behar, UP3 features a slim, stylish, and low-profile design that you can accessorize with jewelry or watches on the wrist. With up to seven days of battery life, water resistance up to 10 meters and a durable anodized aluminum framework, UP3 is one of the only trackers available that achieves true 24/7 wearability. A secure, overlapping watch-style clasp allows you to adjust the band to fit almost any wrist size.
Advanced bioimpedance sensors allow UP3 to automatically and accurately measure your resting heart rate, defined as your heart rate upon waking up, before other influences such as movement, exercise, or caffeine set in. Through the UP App, you can see your resting heart rate change over time and understand what a healthy heart rate means for you. A free, over-the-air firmware update coming soon for UP3 will allow additional health data to be captured.
The sophisticated multi-sensor platform in UP3 allows it to identify detailed sleep stages – REM, Light and Deep sleep – providing new insight into what happens when you’re sleeping. Stick to a consistent bedtime and de-stress before bed to try to get more Deep sleep, associated with body restoration and healing. Sleep longer to try and catch more REM sleep, associated with dreams, learning and memory consolidation.
The powerful sensors and smart algorithms in UP3 enable automatic activity detection after you’ve completed a specific activity or workout. The UP App will recognize many popular activities including running, cross-training, cardio exercise, tennis, hiking and others such as dance and Zumba. And the system learns from your behavior over time to auto-classify many other harder-to-recognize activities like swimming, cycling, weights or yoga.
The UP App’s Smart Coach feature uses the rich information captured by the band to deliver personalized guidance and challenges tailored just for you. Learn what you can do to improve your activity, sleep, diet and heart rate so you can reach your goals faster and make a greater impact on your health and well-being.
“Our mission was to create the world’s most powerful activity tracker in the smallest possible design, and we believe we have done that with the UP3 band” said Travis Bogard, vice president of product management and strategy at Jawbone. “Our advanced, multi-sensor platform delivers a huge amount of new health data, backed by our smart algorithms and our highly personalized Smart Coach system. And because the technology is fully updateable, we’re able to unveil great new features and experiences in the coming months.”
