Jawbone announces UP3 and UP MOVE

Jawbone has announced two new fitness trackers, the entry-level UP MOVE and the top of the line UP3.

The UP3 is a fitness band that incorporates a wide range of sensors, including a tri-axis accelerometer, bioimpedence sensors, and skin and ambient temperature sensors. The sensors allow the band to track your heartbeat continuously throughout the day.

The UP3 also includes advanced sleep trackers, and the band tracks your sleep patterns and gives suggestions to improve it. New algorithms also allow the band to identify your workouts based on your activity and classify them. All of this information is collected in the UP App on your smartphone, with a new Smart Coach feature that tracks your activities, heart rate and sleep and gives suggestions for improvements.

The new UP3 has a durable anodized aluminum body that is water resistant up to 10 meters and can provide up to 7 days of battery life. The UP3 will be available later this year from Apple Stores and Best Buy in black for $179.99.

If you want something cheaper there is the new UP MOVE. The UP MOVE is a wearable that you can clip on anywhere and tracks your activity during the day and prompts you to be more active through the app. The device has a basic display that lights up through the surface with simple iconography. It also tracks your sleep and gives suggestions to improve. The app lets you set step goals and you can compete with your friends to improve your step count.

The UP MOVE uses a simple replaceable watch battery that lasts for six months, so you don’t have to worry about charging it. It will be available in five colors and is priced at just $49.99 with $14.99 extra for the wrist strap.
