The Only Way is UP

The Only Way is UP

You probably know that I love my fitness trackers. I jumped straight in there years ago, when Nike lit up the market with their FuelBand. I LOVED mine!

 Or I did, until it corroded and burned my arm 😦

But Nike replaced it, this time for the newly released white one. Until that stopped working. So they replaced that one too.  

Then, the third one conked out. But Nike had brought out the FuelBand SE so there were no more swaps (even though I reckon three bands in a short space of time, given the cost, is not a good record, Nike) 😦

So I’ve been eyeing up options for the past few months. And while I’m *hinting* for an Apple Watch, I know there will be times I’m not with my phone, or it runs out of charge, or I won’t risk wearing it. I still *need* a tracker 😉

I’ve opted for the Jawbone UP 24. I’ve been wearing it for a few weeks now, and I love it! It’s a lil’ snug (thank you weight gain) but that will be temporary. It links to lots of apps that I use a lot, most importantly it links to MyFitnessPal and do it logs all of my food automatically!

   
 I’ve also been using UP Coffee, Bounts and a few other apps too. It tracks my calorie intake, my sleep, steps and exercise. The app is so easy to use, and I can tell at a glance where I am with progress at any point in my day 🙂  

The battery life is around 7 days, it’s easy to charge and it charges quickly too.

Does anyone else have an UP band, what do you think about it? Which is your favourite fitness tracker?

  1. I have never heard of the Up. We have something here called Fitbit which sounds like the equivalent of the Up. Or maybe I just haven’t heard about all the gadgets and gizmo’s there are out there. 🙂

    I only use my Garmin for running and MyFitnessPal for food tracking. I have thought about getting a Fitbit for my sleep tracking but haven’t.

    1. We have Fitbit here too, and that was one of my other options ☺️ The UP is from the USA so I’m sure it will be available in Canada
