Jawbone UP2 wristband activity tracker

 

Record your own daily activity, and compete against your mates

Slim and light design ; Impressive app interface ; Smart coach and social feed are great motivators

Buckle a little awkward for us ; Logging food can be a chore ; Best results obtained when wearing it all the time

Jawbone Up2 review: A better fit and superior software make the redesigned Up2 a winner

 

Good software makes fitness trackers great. That's why we've always loved Jawbone's bands: the Up app remains the best all-around fitness software available, and the Up2 tracker is the most full-fledged-yet-affordable way to access it. The only thing...

The Up2 provides simple activity and automatic sleep tracking in a slim and fashionable design. The band has good battery life and can be worn in the shower. The Jawbone mobile app includes smart coaching and can be paired with many popular third-party...

It doesn't have a display to quickly check fitness progress and there's no heart-rate tracking. The sleep tracking tends to overestimate and the band can't be worn while swimming

A better fit and superior software make the redesigned Jawbone Up2 our favorite everyday fitness band.

Rubbish

 

Bought two of these and both were faulty. Initially they both indicated they were fully charged and connected via bluetooth to the phone but no data was recorded during the day. Going through all the trouble shooting guides revealed that they were...

Nice Design, Not much features!

 

They have discounted their products which is a shame, so you wont find any support for these, however, you should be able to pick one up for cheap. The band itself is stylish and trendy. The App is quite useful and fun to use. I would prefer a tracker...

Band broke about 4 weeks after use

 

Don't buy this. They don't stand by their product and the band broke after 4 weeks. You can't wear it all the time and the band is made of cheap rubber/plastic. Spend a little more on a better product...

Nice device, but poor design

 

Had no real major issues with the UP2, did what it was meant to but for the price it could have had more features or at least a better design, which is not aesthetically appealing. Lack of a screen is also a downside of getting these over other smart...

Never got it working

 

I managed to get this on a good deal off Telstra's ebay but it came defective the band unlinks from the phone as soon as charger is disconnected and does not work properly. No lights nothing. The only time the lights come on is when it is connected to...

Disappointed

 

Very disappointed in this band. Battery isn't reliable and you're lucky if the battery isn't DOA. The band looks trendy and pretty, kind of like jewelery, but lack of screen and the requirement to check your phone to see your activity is annoying. The...

Poor quality control, only lasted three months

 

My first Jawbone UP2 lasted three months before the "Wake" function stopped working. I then exchanged it for a new one which subsequently failed after 7 months. The product itself is sleek and lightweight and doesn't feel uncomfortable. However, I am...
