Jawbone Up Wellness Wristband Knows if You’ve Been Sleeping, and Knows When You’re Awaks

 |  |  |  |  |  |  July 14, 2011


Up is a new health and wellness gadget from Jawbone, which uses hardware and software to track your eating and sleeping habits, as well as your movements. It’s the same size as those rubber straps that people wear, and it contains enough sensors to track all of the relevant info. The Up app will help collect the data and display it.

The only problem is the online component of all this health-related data. I wouldn’t want my own medical data in the cloud. I also don’t want Big Brother checking up on me or Jawbone selling this data to the highest bidder (imagine if it finds itself into the hands of insurance companies). Other than that, I can see this being useful for many people. Apparently, the more you wear it, the better it gets. Sounds like it can “learn” as it collects more data about your behavior.

Jawbone hasn’t revealed the price, but it will ship for iOS and Android devices sometime later this year.
