Jawbone UP Fitness Band Available Nov. 6 For $99

Keep Your Fitness in Check With Jawbone UP

As 2012 approaches, you'll no doubt have some sort of resolution to get healthy. Rather than go it alone, why not employ some kind of smart technology to keep you at the top of your game? The UP might be just what you need. The Jawbone UP (yes, that Jawbone) is your wearable fitness monitor — it tracks your fitness levels, monitors your sleep and eating habits, and keeps you challenged with community activities.

Built with something called MotionX technology, the UP is said to be wicked accurate for monitoring your daily activities like walking, your pace, distance, calories burned, but also gets really detailed with your sleep habits since you wear the thing 24/7 (even in the shower — it's water-resistant!). No kidding — the UP doesn't just monitor the numbers of hours you've slept, but can also pinpoint how long it took you to fall asleep, the various different phases of sleep, and your overall sleep quality. The band even vibrates to "nudge" you awake at the optimal time during your natural sleep cycle. So thoughtful.

And as you may have guessed, the UP integrates with your iPhone to provide you with on-the-go stats and totals, but you can also use your camera to snap pics of the food and snacks you eat to compile your own virtual food journal. Fact is, when you know you have to take a picture of what you're eating, you're more likely to skip that piece of pie at the office potluck. Speaking of office, you can set the UP to remind you to get up and away from that computer screen during specific intervals throughout the day to get the blood flowing.

Coming in seven colors — blue, white, silver, brown, black, and two tones of red — the Jawbone UP seems to be the front-runner in the wave of new fitness gadgets, and by far the most wearable for the ladies. Get yours (or add it to your wish list) on Nov. 6 for $99.

Good luck if this one doesn't work!   I was an original adopter of the first UP buying it from the company pre-release. It took me 10 MONTHS and multiple broken "4 to 6 week and you will get your refund" promises to finally get my refund. I opted for the store credit but what they did not tell me was that the credit was, "...One-time use credit good for only one transaction. Unused portion of credit will be forfeited. Valid for 6 months. Excludes limited edition and other selected products.Cannot be combined with other offers or promotions." So while any Joe can now get $50 off a Jambox, not me, and I bought the original UP pre-release from the company.   Buyer beware! You might want to wait a year to see if it really works and then buy from a big store with a strong return policy so if it breaks you will not have to deal with Jawbone directly.
