Jawbone Updates 'UP' App With Sleep Tracking Improvements, Debuts Coffee Monitoring App

by

jawboneupJawbone today updated its UP app to version 3.1, adding several new features to improve its Jawbone UP fitness band. Multiple enhancements have been made to sleep tracking, with the app including more information on sound sleep and light sleep periods, plus sunrise and sunset visuals.

There's a new sleep recovery menu that can be accessed if a band was not put into sleep mode, a feature originally introduced with version 3.0 of the app. The app also encourages better sleep through new personalized goals, challenging users to go to bed at the same time each night.

Following the update, reminders can also be set using customizable alerts, allowing users to set alarms for various purposes such as working out and taking medications.

- Reminders: Set customizable alerts with band vibrations to remind you to workout, go to bed, take medication and more.
- Forgot to put your band in sleep mode? Now access sleep recovery from the home screen.
- Added sunrise and sunset visuals into sleep graphs
- Introducing new Today I Will insights
- Bug fixes and sync performance improvements

Jawbone has also introduced an entirely new app, called UP Coffee, which is designed to allow Jawbone UP users to understand how caffeine affects sleep. The app lets users enter how many cups of coffee or other caffeinated foods/beverages they have consumed during the day and then calculates how long it will take to become "Sleep Ready."

upcoffee
Up Coffee interfaces with the existing UP app, so users will see beverage consumption statistics entered into UP Coffee displayed within their UP apps.

Unlock a series of data-based reports on how your body reacts to caffeine. Check in with UP Coffee when you drink, and even when you don’t, for just 7 days to reveal your Caffeine Persona. Keep tracking for 3 more days to reveal the relationships between how much and when you drink with your bedtime, sleep duration and nighttime awakenings. Knowledge is power, so get buzzed.

UP by Jawbone app can be downloaded from the App Store for free. [Direct Link]

The UP Coffee app can also be downloaded from the App Store for free. [Direct Link]

Sleep when your tired, eat when your hungry. Not when some app tells you to.

Fools will laugh but the wise will smile.

Really there should be a news article - humans loose the ability to know when they are tired or hungry.

I was really hoping they made an update to have sleep data reset the day instead of based off clock.

Most of these trackers expect normal people to be asleep by 12AM. If you are tracking calories and steps this makes it difficult to track the begging/end of a day.

I hope the iWatch (if it has any fitness related features) does this.:D
