Jawbone UP Move
AN OLDER BUT VERY CHEAP TRACKER.
A BASIC CLIP-ON style activity tracker, the UP Move also has a range of wristbands available cheaply online. The Move is now about two years old, but that doesn’t mean it’s not worth a look, as the true value is in the Jawbone app, which has frequent updates. The Move itself uses the standard 3-axis accelerometer to track activity, day and night, but doesn’t have vibration feedback, or other options such as heart rate tracking. It connects via low power Bluetooth, and uses a replaceable battery with a 6-month life. The Move is quite compact at 28mm across (but 9.75mm thick), and can take a splash of water, but isn’t designed for swimming. The tracker face is one big button, and it uses LEDs to show the time, and fitness goal progress.
While the Move is pretty basic, the Jawbone app is top notch (and the same as the more expensive Jawbone fitness trackers use), with features such as food logging, fitness duels with friends and even a smart coach.
