Jaw­bone UP Move

TechLife Australia - - BARGAIN HUNTER -

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.
