Jawbone today announced two new Up branded trackers, the UP3, which is a new premium wristband; and the UP Move; which targets the mass market.
The UP3 features the traditional accelerometer as well as new bioimpedence and temperature sensors, which capture even more data to provide added insight into your health and fitness. Initially, these sensors will track your resting heart rate, while future updates will enhance these sensors further. The UP3 is apparently capable of detecting activities automatically. So, you’ll no longer have to manually add exercise sessions. The UP3 is also capable of tracking light, deep and REM sleep. The UP3 band will be released in black and silver versions around Christmas, and will cost $179.99.
The UP Move, on the other hand, may act as an introduction to the realm of fitness wearables for many people. The band will be available in a variety of colours for the more budget friendly price of $49. It pairs with a smartphone over Bluetooth 4.0, yet promises six months worth of battery life. LED lights around the front of the device track your step progress, display the time, and show sleep data from the previous night.
The UP Move will be released this month, while the UP3 is expected to be released next month. Just in time to start the New Year off on the right foot.
