Automatic and Jawbone today announced a new partnership that will see Automatic's car-tracking data integrated with the UP by Jawbone iOS app that connects to Jawbone's fitness band. By incorporating data from Automatic, a connected driving assistant system that measures car information like miles traveled and gas used, Jawbone will be able to give users an idea of how their car usage impacts their overall fitness.

Physical activity and driving are related to each other, but its not always easy to see exactly how. When you are driving, you are not generally physically active. More time driving leaves less time for walking and exercise. Automatic and Jawbone have teamed up to provide drivers insights on how their physical fitness and wellness is connected to their driving behavior.

Automatic data will be imported into the UP by Jawbone app automatically, which will provide insights on the relationship between driving and walking. It allows users to compare movement collected by the Jawbone UP band with driving times from Automatic on the same timeline, with the overall goal of encouraging more walking and physical activity.

In addition to Automatic integration, the Jawbone UP app is able to incorporate data from a wide range of popular apps, though most are notably more fitness related. For example, the app connects to MyFitnessPal, RunKeeper, Strava, Withings, Lose It, and more.

- Automatic is automatic -- Drive data from Automatic is synced automatically with the Jawbone Up app.
- Integrated travel -- See your walking and driving compiled in one place. Discover the impact that walking to work once a week has on your fitness.
- Share with friends -- Automatic trip summaries can be shared with other Jawbone Up users.
- Prevent road rage -- Jawbone Up tracks your mood and diet. Compare this to the time spent in the car each day and routes traveled to see what makes you happiest.
- iPhone or Android -- The Automatic Jawbone integration works on both iOS and Android

Using the Automatic with the Jawbone UP will require both pieces of hardware. The Automatic can be purchased from the Automatic website for $99.95, while the Jawbone UP is available from the Jawbone website starting at $129.99. The UP by Jawbone app can be downloaded from the App Store for free. [Direct Link]

it wouldn't be bad if it told you "you could have walked this in XX minutes with XXXX steps."

then it might make you think twice about short car trips

Surely anybody with half a brain already knows which destinations are within walking/cycling distance? Seems like a lot of work for nothing.
Plus the usual privacy issues.
