Jawbone Unveils Up Move $50 Health Tracker
Jawbone's Up Move is a tiny $50 device targeted at people who haven't yet jumped aboard wearable bandwagon. But while it's not necessarily revolutionary, this could be Jawbone's ticket to getting even more people on its health tracking platform.
Jawbone unveils the Up3 earlier, the Up Move offers most of the features from Jawbone's Up health bands; including step, activity, and sleep tracking, but it lacks the Up's vibrating notifications and smart alarm clock. That's to be expected, though, as it relies on a watch battery for power (again, similar to Misfit's devices). Jawbone claims the Move will get around six months of battery life and a decent tradeoff for not having to worry about charging it every few days.
The Up Move's "watch" face serves as its only button: Press it once to show your step progress; twice to show the time (displayed analog-style with two LEDS); and three times to show your sleep progress. You can wear the Up Move in a variety of ways: In your pocket; clasped onto your clothing with the included clip; or on your wrist with a $15 wrist strap.
The company recently opened up its platform to work with other devices, including Fitbit's lineup and anything running Android Wear and Apple's HealthKit.
