[Tech] Jawbone UP2, my 2nd Activity Tracker!

I broke my first activity tracker within 6 months after started using it… Sadly enough! I loved the Misfit Flash but it was too fragile for my taste. Nonetheless, it’s a good product. You can read the review here:

My in-laws decided to get me another one and this time it’s the UP2 from Jawbone!

Pro: I like the look and feel of it. 🙂 The band is quite thin like a bracelet, so i can wear it with my watch. The band is pretty smart. It automatically detects my workout without needed to be logged manually. Moreover, “UP” on IOS is the best app of them all! Jawbone really does it right. I also benefits from the “UP Coffee” where i can track my caffeine intake and associate the data with my sleep patterns from the main app. Great feature!

Con: I have to charge it every week as the battery will last about 7-8 days in my experience. Unlike the Misfit Flash, the UP2 is only water resistant. (Showering is fine actually.) I wish the band is waterproof, so that i can swim with it.

Conclusion: 4/5

I love it! However, i wish there is a better product out there… maybe the combination of Misfit Flash/Shine and Jawbone UP2 would be a perfect one! LOL
