Jawbone today announced UP MOVE, an entry-level activity and sleep tracker that helps you get fit, lose weight and have fun doing it. At just $49.99, the clip-on or wrist wearable device offers one of the simplests way to get credit for your steps, exercise and calories burned while also capturing detailed information about your sleep. And UP MOVE lets you learn more with Smart Coach – the UP App’s intelligent approach to personalized guidance and deeper insight that helps you move more every day.
Press the face of UP MOVE to see its sleek, hidden LED display light up to show you your progress toward your goals at a glance. Press once to display your step progress, twice to display the time, and three times to display your sleep from the prior night.
Made from a durable, nylon-like anodized aluminum, UP MOVE comes in five brilliant colors with corresponding clips so you can easily fasten it anywhere. Place the tracker discreetly in the coin pocket of your jeans, or use it with the clip to wear it on your sock, belt or bra. Colorful hypoallergenic wrist straps are also available in two widths, slim and standard, allowing you to wear UP MOVE on your wrist and mix and match it with your personal accessories.
UP MOVE comes with a replaceable battery that lasts up to six months, eliminating the need for regular recharging. It uses the same circular batteries found in digital watches and remotes, which are long- lasting and easy to replace.
The accelerometer built into UP MOVE counts your daily steps without missing a beat, no matter where you go or how you wear it. UP MOVE can also be worn in bed to accurately track sleep, including hours slept and sleep quality. For optimum results, wear the comfortable wrist strap accessory during sleep.
UP MOVE connects wirelessly with Jawbone’s industry-leading UP App via Bluetooth® Smart, syncing regularly in the background to track your progress throughout the day and night. Smart Coach, the UP App’s intelligent guidance and insight system, stays with you every step of the way to help you understand what changes you should make, and encourages you to move more each day. You’ll get a deeper understanding of how your diet, sleep, activity and other choices affect your overall health and well-being, and you’ll be motivated with personal challenges like drinking eight glasses of water in a day, or taking 2,500 more steps.
With UP MOVE, you can connect with anyone in the UP system, regardless of whether they use Jawbone’s original UP and UP24 bands, or simply the free UP App for smartphones and wearables. Members of the UP community who have three or more teammates are likely to take 1,000 more steps per day which equates to 10 extra miles per month, according to Jawbone data. Use the new UP leaderboard to see how you stack up against your teammates for a little healthy competition.
The tracker is powered by MotionX technology to provide a comprehensive summary of your daily progress, including steps and sleep.
