Has anyone else got a Jawbone UP (fitness monitor)?

(19 Posts)

DH brought me one back from the US last week. It's cool! It tracks my activity in the day and my sleeping patterns at night, and I tell it what I've eaten so it monitors my nutritional intake too.

There are other features too but I'm still getting the hang of it. Anyone else got one?

I have had one for three weeks, I have paired it with my fitness pal just wish it would record gym from mfp app instead of entering it separately! Otherwise its good

Are you still using it? I quite fancy one, even if just to see how much sleep DD isn't letting me have. Feels like it might be something you just use for a couple of months then stick in a drawer?

I have one but like you say, it's been stuck in a drawer. I found it when we moved a couple of weeks ago, but now I can't remember where I put the bloody thing.

It's a bit uncomfortable really, but interesting and reasonably motivating.

There's probably an iphone app that does the same thing and involves tying your phone to your wrist

I have one! I love it! It takes some getting used to (sleeping in it!) but it soon becomes the norm.

How long have you been using it ima?

Yes! Its brill. I only use the walking and sleeping bits as have no clue how to do anything else but I find it really motivating. Instead of moaning when I have to walk anywhere I now get interested in how many steps I can add to daily goal. And it was quite sobering to see how little sleep I sometimes get. You can add people to your Team and see how they are doing, it is quite addictive.

I have a NikeFuel band and it's a similar concept. I LOVE it. It's like a bangle so forget you have it on. I would like it to monitor sleep though - not sure it does.

I love it - am now making a big effort to take more steps (even went to gym this pm to get some running in!). But - I can't work out whether it can tell me my average number of steps or whether I have to work it out manually. Does anyone know? Obviously I can work it out for myself but just seems a bit of a faff...

Meant to say - I love the vibrating alarm. Such a nice way to wake up...

Hi
Thinking of getting a jawbone, are they easy to work?
As in setting up and I presume downloading the info?
Would like to know before I buy
Thanks

I only use mine to track walking and sleeping so I don't know how easy all the other functions are, but I am loving it so far and find it is a real motivator. Very easy to set up and use.
