Jawbone today announced the third iteration of its UP wristband, which features an adjustable design and a number of new sensors that more effectively track sleep and physical activity.

Jawbone has added a new tri-axis accelerometer, skin and ambient temperature sensors, and set of "bioimpedance" sensors that allow the UP3 to analyze a wide range of biometric data. The UP3 can measure resting heart rate and can track detailed sleep stages including REM sleep, light sleep, and deep sleep. The device can even identify the type of workout being performed and classify activities like tennis, running, cross-training, and more.

The UP3 uses the biometric data to power what Jawbone calls the "Smart Coach", which is a feature built into the UP app that keeps track of progress and makes suggestions based on a user's recent actions. For example, getting two hours of deep sleep causes the Smart Coach to inform the user about the extra energy they'll have during the day, while completing an extended tennis match triggers a reminder to rebuild energy by eating a meal. The Smart Coach also improves its suggestions as more activities is tracked and more tasks are completed on the UP3.


The UP3 also now features a slim design that can be adjusted to fit wrists of different sizes, and is made out of a durable aluminum material. Jawbone says the UP3 gets up to seven days of battery life and is water resistant. The Jawbone UP3 will be available later this year for $179.99 at the company's own website and will also be sold at Apple Stores and Best Buy locations. Jawbone is also launching the $49.99 UP Move, which includes an accelerometer and support for Smart Coach functionality.

I got one of these the day I was made. It resides inbetween my ears. I listen to it daily and open it for answers and feedback. Its so powerful. I call it a brain. It is connected to all these sensors I have in and around my body. Its amazing how they give feedback and info to the brain. I can't believe how lucky I was to get one of these at conception because I realise not everyone has been so lucky. So this jawbone is very good for those who didn't get one. Bravo to jawbone for helping unfortunate people.

The human brain also gets fooled, distracted, exaggerates, forgets, makes mistakes with simple arithmetic, and etc. The sensors give feedback and the brain turns it into mush and made-up stories. It's good at solving really difficult problems, but often bad at a whole bunch of really simple tasks that require consistent attention and accuracy. Brain operated humans use their senses and feedback to slip and fall, lose their keys, crash cars into their own garage doors, send the wrong people to jail with "eyewitness" testimony, a whole bunch of screwy stuff.

Ask people what their wearable computing device with accurate sensors measured (how much exercise they really got that day, etc.), and the humans usually guess wrong, sometimes wildly wrong.

Can't even remember whether jawbone or fitbit from 20 lines back !!!

Use it, but don't trust it.

Aren't you funny and witty? So pray tell, does your super brain know why you woke up tired?

Or do you maybe think that having more and better data about how deeply you slept, or how your heart rate reacted to that climb 40 miles into your bike ride today vs. last week, or the amount of calories you burned and steps you took by walking from the bus station to your office might help you to become more in tune with your body, and increase your overall health?

I suppose blood pressure monitors are frivolous to you, also? I mean after all, you can tell when your BP is high by just listening to the ringing in your ears, huh?

Ridiculing others for wanting to use technology to more easily and accurately gather data about their health is a pretty caveman viewpoint, IMO.

BTW: It's a Jawbone. Not a Fitbit.

Looks strange. Like they cut out a little piece of a mattress and stuck it on the outside of a wristband.

Definantly doesn't look worth $179.99
