UP2 BLACK DIAMOND US
Charging Instructions :
1First, hold the band’s strap with the loop at the bottom then connect the charging cable from the right. The pins from the charging cable will magnetically hold the band in place.
2. Next, insert the charging cable into your computer or a standard USB wall adapter. You can bend the charging cable if needed.
3. The icons on the face of the band will illuminate and cycle through to indicate that the tracker is charging.
4. The icons will stop cycling and the runner icon will solidly glow once the band is fully charged. A full charge takes approximately 60–90 minutes.
The moon and runner icon will flash simultaneously to alert you when your battery has only 10% power remaining.
You can review your tracker’s remaining battery life by tapping the band icon on the UP App home screen.

Lets start with the clasp, because i see people complaining about it. My wife who has like a 6 inch wrist (very small) was very skeptical about wearing this because she can never find a watch or bracelet that doesn't flop around. After 4-5 days she doesn't even notice she is wearing it. I'm 6'3" with much bigger wrists have had no problems with it either. You just have to find the right place to slide the clasp. The only problem i have with the clasp is the fairly large metal ring you slide the band through. It tends to flop just a little and could probably have been made smaller to stay out of the way. Comparatively to the FitBit, their clasp was flexible and very comfortable, but also bulky, and somewhat difficult to remove. since you could not wear that band in the shower (unlike the Jawbone), I had to remove it daily and that was a detractor.
Beyond the clasp, this band tracks what it says, does it accurately, and just as accurately as the UP3. The tapping has NEVER been an issue, and like some other comments, you just have to find the right spot and rhythm. Anyone tapping this thing 12 times is just a moron and looking for attention.
What really sold me on Jawbone as a brand over Fitbit is the app. Fitbit does a wonderful job of collecting data, but in my opinion leaves the user to interpret it. During my 3 week trial i found myself constantly checking the screen, or my phone, to see what i had accomplished. I earned tons of badges for exercising but I'm not really into badges. I wanted to learn about my fitness/nutrition levels and be a healthier me. At the end of the day, no one was making suggestions to change my behavior, or analyzing the data. That's where Smart Coach really won me over. For me (android/galaxy note user) the interface with the app for Jawbone is much cleaner, streamlined, and tells me exactly what i want to know without having to digest a page of data. Additionally, when i'm not getting enough sleep, or falling short of my goals, it gives me "I WILL" challenges that help motivate me to do better. The app is actually usable without a JAwbone tracker if you have a good enough smart phone, so I would encourage you to download it to see for yourself. It won't be fully functional but it will certainly give you a good peak at its potential.
In summary, for $100 bucks you get a splash proof, shower proof, (not submergeable) tracker that will help you accomplish your fitness goals. If you want to manage your fitness AND NUTRITION, I would recommend downloading the My Fitness Pal Calorie Counter app. It pairs with the jawbone device as well but is a little more user friendly and expansive if you are tracking things like sugar intake or are taking part in certain nutritional challenges to go along with your activities.
The UP3, which i still need more time with, currently doesn't do a whole lot more. It tracks resting heart rate, and is supposedly going to expand on that in the future but I would probably hold off until it can be user tested and verified. Feel free to track us down at 843 Benefits and we'll partner up to meet some challenges together! Photo attached is our Silver UP2 next to the black UP3. Very little difference. (Mainly a slightly thicker clasp on the bottom of the UP3 due to extra sensors.)
Make it happen!!
I bought an Up on clearance around the holidays, tried it for a week, and couldn't get used to the fit and hated the charging cap scheme and it didn't pair reliably so I returned it.
I looked at the Fitbit Charge HR, which is well-reviewed and recommended by The Wirecutter. One of my friends got one this spring and really likes it and I must admit having a display on the band is nice, but to me, it's just too bulky/noticeable. It looks like a watch band.
So I decided to wait for Jawbone to finally start shipping the Up3. $179 felt like a lot, but it would be "the world's most advanced fitness tracker." Alas, as the reviews started to come in last week, the sentiment seemed underwhelming. The subhead on The Verge review of the Up3 was "Just buy an Up2." I briefly debated if having resting heart rate, more advanced sleep metrics and the potential for future upgrades was worth $80 and decided to order an Up2 instead.
It arrived today and I never take time to review things online but felt compelled to do so today (I will update this review in the future if my initial impressions prove inaccurate). The industrial design of the packaging is premium and smart. The getting started process was remarkably easy (plug into USB, charge, put on wrist, download app, sync) and the size is wonderful! It is by far the best looking and most discreet wrist-based fitness tracker I've seen. I've only had it on for a few hours, but it is surprisingly comfortable, too, much more so than the original Up I tried in December.
And the Up app has great eye candy. Moments before I bought this for $99, I almost bought a Garmin Vivofit on Groupon for $59. I liked its red move bar but its app just doesn't have the UI refinement of Jawbone's Up app. I really hope that Jawbone is able to move a lot of these and scale and not go the way of Palm or so many other companies with great technology or designs that can't scale and survive.
So what do I like and not like about this product?
+ Size/Aesthetic: it is really small - not too small, but feels like the perfect size for this product category and way more discreet than others I've seen. It fits under a shirt cuff just fine.
+ Up app: it's easy to use and great to look at. I like the idea of the Smart Coach and will be excited to see how it learns over time and what recommendations it has. Already today it's been friendly, helpful and encouraging in a way that isn't at all like Microsoft's old Clipey was.
+ Battery life: with a full charge, my Up2 is reporting 8 days of battery life
+ Charging: The USB charger fits any USB and the watch just attaches magnetically so it's pretty easy to charge
- Wish it had continuous heart rate monitoring like Fitbit Charge HR
- Wish it had a small display to show feedback instead of having to look at app but you can set it to vibrate when you hit goals or are inactive for a while or time to go to bed, etc.
Some people have noted in their reviews difficulty getting it to recognize the double-tap. I haven't had any issues with this and actually find the invisible interface rather elegant. It's just a piece of jewelry unless you need to interact with it and then a simple double-tap wakes it and shows either Active or Sleep mode and you can hold to change it.
Others have complained about the clasp and how hard it is to use. I will admit: it took me a few minutes to figure out how to use it (mostly because I didn't initially realize that you can move the clasp to fit your specific wrist size). Once I watched the video that Jawbone has, it was really straightforward and feels really nice on.
Given all of the news stories and rumors over the last several months about Jawbone's financial viability, the delays in shipping the Up3, it losing its 10 meter waterproof rating and only have resting heart rate at launch, it'd be understandable to be cautious about jumping on the Jawbone Up2/3/4 product line at launch. Based on my initial out of the box experience, I just want to encourage you to take a chance and order one. I think you'll find it to be a really elegant and effective way to enhance your well being.
The points you've shared on the surface commands (double tap) and fit of the band are duly noted, even if mostly shared on behalf of other users. :) We've also now released firmware version 1.1 for UP2 and UP3 users. Firmware version 1.1 includes a number of enhancements, including: improved surface responsiveness for increased ease in changing modes, improved battery performance, and refined algorithm readings of step data. If you'd like to take advantage of this firmware update please send us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll be happy to release it for your account.
We're also thrilled to know that both the software and hardware designs are living up to your (and our!) expectations. We believe any wearable technology needs to fit seamlessly and beautifully into your everyday life, which is why we've designed UP2 to provide all the same advanced technology as past Jawbone Fitness Trackers in 45% of the size. Similarly, the app needs to help your data come alive, and that's why we're continuing to create an app that is both engaging and insightful. Keep an eye out for special "Today I will..." challenges that pop up from time to time and help you push even more towards your goals.
Thanks again - we wish you the best!
-much smaller than my old up24
-step counting seems pretty accurate even on my dominate hand
-new clasp makes me feel like I'm not breaking it when putting it on
-magnetic charger! No more little cap to lose
-super comfortable to wear, I forget I have it on
-syncing has been flawless with an iPhone 5S
-better battery life
-not completely waterproof yet. I wouldn't trust it while showering or washing dishes
-sleep tracking doesn't seem to be that accurate
Overall it's probably the best "bang for your buck" fitness tracker out there
A lot of people are complaining that double tapping doesn't work to switch modes. This simply isn't true, you just have to tap directly on top of there the light up icons are. Not one issue ever trying to change modes once you figure out where to tap.
A lot of people are also complaining about the clasp. I really like the design and it's no more difficult than putting on a watch. If you can put a watch on by yourself you can put this band on...
Jawbone Fitness Trackers are water resistant. They're rain, splash, sweat and shower resistant, so you're totally fine to leave the band on for all your day to day activities, including showering. Just make sure to remove the band before jumping into a pool or tubbing!
