The Up system comprises a small wristband that monitors the user’s activity and is linked to a mobile app that analyses this data and an open platform that provides tailored motivational goals.
Jawbone says the product ‘integrates robust computing and sophisticated sensor technology in the form of functional jewelry.’
This is the first non-audio product developed by Jawbone, which has previously developed Bluetooth headsets and the Jambox speaker.
Jawbone chief executive Hosain Rahman says, ‘We’re passionate about creating products for the mobile lifestyle that people love to use everyday. And now, we’re harnessing that passion to approach a major global issue – health.’
The Up system is currently in Beta testing and is set to launch later this year.
