Why get the UP3?
The UP3 is one of the most advanced, lightweight and user friendly fitness bands available in the world. It is a Bluetooth-connected band that tracks your health through the day and presents this information on your phone via the app. With the cutting edge sensors on board, the UP3 gives you a full week between battery charges to help you keep on top of your fitness.

A quick start guide is included so you can begin using the UP3 to motivate yourself into achieving a healthier lifestyle. It has been designed to be a highly stylish, good-looking device suitable for wearing at work, for exercising or on formal occasions.

What will it monitor?
The UP3 monitors your quality of sleep and records your sleep pattern, letting you see how well and when you sleep, waking you up at an optimum time. With this information you can make any adjustments necessary to get a better sleep and feel more refreshed during the day.

This fitness band is equipped to measure your bio-impedance which gives it your heart rate, respiration and galvanic skin response (GSR) to monitor autonomic nerve responses. The UP3 measures both your resting heart rate and your passive heart rate, comparing it to the base rate of when you first wake up.

With previous models, you always had to tap the band first so it knew you were about to start a workout. Now, with minute-level step data recorded during the day, you can retrospectively tell the app which specific activity you were doing at the time. For example, with weightlifting it will have pre-programmed the movement pattern and analyse your data to recognise the number and speed of the lifts you did.

Instead of using the heart rate monitor for exercise and activities, the UP3 uses the accelerometer to track your calories burned during a workout. In addition to this, your activities can work in tandem with your personal food log and keep track of weight, all using the UP app from jawbone.

How will it motivate me to improve my lifestyle?
If you have ever wanted to keep a track of your activities over time, you can now see your exercise history recorded by the UP3 band in a vertical timeline. The large range of workouts the UP3 recognises include activities within cardio, weightlifting, Pilates and cross-training. This gives you the opportunity to monitor your favourite exercise or pick up a new one.

The Smart Coach will monitor and encourage your progress so you have more energy, lose weight if needed and feel better about yourself. Altogether the UP3 is a tool to motivate you instead of just having good intentions that you may never get around to.

Is this suited to me?
We are all different in our athletic abilities and the mobile app interprets data collected from the app band but then allows you add your experience of how tiring you found a particular exercise. This is then taken into account and provides a set of results more personally catered to you.

The band is splash resistant so will work fine if it starts to rain but it is recommended you remove it before showering or swimming.

Even if you are new to keeping a track on fitness, the official app is one of the most acclaimed in the market with a rich, yet easy to use interface. However, should you wish to use a different companion software for your band, lots of third party apps are compatible with the UP3.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Strap easily breaks if worn with clothing or in bed. The strap on my UP3 broke when the clip caught on my jacket sleeve. I put it back together with self amalgamating tape. But that didn't last. The next break was a few months later wearing it in bed and nearer the centre piece. I found JML UV glue was able to repair it and also the part where it broke earlier. But, JML UV glue doesn't like moisture so it needed 2 further repairs. All within 18 months. After two years it started to break again, only this time the rubber strap was falling apart as the rubber perished. Too many breaks on the contact sides made it impossible to repair again. It had a troubled life and although I cared for it as best I could it has now passed the bar and beyond recovery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a great tracker and even better app I've been long-time user of Jawbone's products, so naturally I couldn't help myself from trying out UP3. There's been so much hype about it...good, bad, etc that I wanted to see for myself. After spending the last week and half with my UP3, I have to say I love it! PROS: Sleek design - I wear mine with other bracelets and my watch and it doesn't stick out as clunky or fall off when I take my jacket off. Very comfortable to sleep and workout with. Resting Heart Rate - I didn't think I'd care much about this feature, but I've been wearing it just over a week and I am addicted to it! After a night of pizza and wine, I was amazed to see that I woke up with a slight higher heart rate. I look forward to using this info to improve my health over time. App - all the same awesome benefits the app has to offer, but with my UP3 I just get access to more (active heart rate reading, etc) Updates - I'm excited for more features to come out. Thats why I buy Jawbone products, they always add through a wireless update over the course of time. CONS: Clasp - sometimes I have to try a couple of times to get it secured. Once it's on it stays on, but I wish it always worked the first time.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Unaccurate data Used for nearly three months, inaccurate data recorded. Dropped on front drive for 5 hours... Heart rate was up/down during that period. Get up in the night and does not log steps. Driving two hours (no steps obviously) but had logged steps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So convenient. My wife bought an identical item last year on the internet, at the time we thought it was a bargain. I have been thinking of purchasing a similar after seeing how useful it has been to her. When I saw your advertisement for the same item and at a less expensive price, I just had to purchase one for myself. Had the jawbone just over a week now and it is proving to be an asset already.

does this tracker sync with a withings scale

Asked by: granmalaura
This is not listed as a feature of the device. Typically it syncs with it's own dedicated app. However a quick google search revealed the following info .... http://blog.withings.com/2013/04/30/withings-now-integrates-with-up-by-jawbone-2/
