Wearables company Jawbone has unveiled a new design with a new strap for its UP2 fitness trackers and 10 new colours for the UP2 and UP3, further expanding its portfolio of fashion-focussed activity trackers.
Crafted by leading industrial designer Yves Behar, Jawbone’s new UP activity trackers are designed for 24/7 wear and can be accessorised with jewellery or watches on the wrist. Previously only offered in Black Diamond and Light Grey Hex with classic flat straps, the UP2 is now available in six new colours,. These include Turquoise Circle, Oat Spectrum, Gunmetal Hex, Orchid Circle and Black Diamond designs with the new lightweight thin straps, along with Violet Circle with the classic flat strap.
Meanwhile UP3, Jawbone’s advanced multi-sensor tracker, is now available in four additional colours, including Indigo Twist, Ruby Cross, Sand Twist and Teal Cross, as well as the previously available colours. Other additions include a free over-the-air firmware update with new features including Passive Heart Rate monitoring and Automatic Sleep Detection (you no longer need to tap the band to enter and exit sleep mode).
While Resting Heart Rate is one of the best indicators of overall heart health, the addition of Passive Heart Rate throughout the day gives users a more complete picture of their heart health. Passive Heart Rate is taken periodically throughout the day when the user is still, and provides insight into how daily influences and choices such as diet, caffeine, stressful meetings, and other stimuli can affect heart rate and overall heart health.
The UP3 tracker by Jawbone will be available in 4 new colours for £129.99 on Jawbone.com and Amazon.com from mid-September. The UP2 tracker by Jawbone will be available from late September for £89.99 on Jawbone.com and Amazon.com.
