As a mom and fitness enthusiast, I stay very active. I’m always on the go with my three kids and somehow in between the craziness I find an hour or two each day to work out at my local gym. I’ve been looking for ways to track my progress and stay motivated, so I was excited for the opportunity to try out and review the new UP24 by Jawbone.
The UP24 is an activity tracker that works alongside the UP app to offer an integrated system built around you. The innovative band tracks how you sleep, move and eat so that you can make better choices. It gives you real-time insights and actions by staying connected to your smartphone via Bluetooth Smart.
Once you’ve downloaded the UP app (available on the App Store or Google Play) and set up your band, the two work together to provide you with insights about your achievements throughout the day. You can track your workouts, the food you eat, the steps you take, how well you sleep and more. The app itself is colorful and easy to use. You can customize it as much or as little as you want, depending on how much of your life you want to track.
You can also set an alarm on your band so that it wakes you up when you are in light sleep, which is the most ideal time to wake up. If you use a regular alarm clock, it wakes you up at the exact time you set it for, which may happen to be when you are in deep sleep. If this happens, you may end up feeling tired or groggy for the rest of the day. I hate when this happens, so I am really looking forward to using this feature once school starts!
The most obvious benefit of the UP24 is it’s ability to count steps. If you are someone who likes to set goals or needs extra motivation to exercise, this band is perfect. It provides your stats in real-time so that you constantly know where you stand. For someone my age, it recommends that I take 10,000 steps each day. It’s been fun trying to reach that goal!
Overall, the UP24 is motivating and fun to use. I’m still learning how to take advantage of all the features, but so far I am very happy with it!
