Being a Verizon Wireless Ambassador I’m able to try out fun new products that help make your life easier, more organized and in this case more aware.

 

I recently tested out the Jawbone Up which is a rubber bracelet that tracks your movement, sleep, etc. Since I’ve been trying to make a lifestyle change lately this was a perfect new gadget for me to test out.

 

“UP™ is a system that takes a holistic approach to a healthy lifestyle. The wristband tracks your movement and sleep in the background. The app displays your data, lets you add things like meals and mood, and delivers insights that keep you moving forward.”

 

I know I sleep a lot. I always have. It was interesting for me to see how much I actually sleep, how long it takes me to fall asleep, etc. Some days I slept for 9 hours some for 7. But it’s interesting to see how long it takes to fall asleep and how many “real” hours I was actually sleeping. If I had a super busy day with a lot on my mind, it took me longer to fall asleep. While that may not be that surprising I think it’s pretty cool that the Jawbone knows and recognizes that.

 

I also like that it tracks my steps throughout the day. I’m also able to include my workouts and input what I did at the gym that day.

 

The Jawbone is very easy to use. Just set it up, turn it on, put it on and go about your day. Then all you have to do is hook your Jawbone up to your phone for it to upload all your new information. You can create a team and share your progress with your friends and family or just monitor it for yourself.

 

If you are interested in becoming more aware of your movements, sleep, and overall health, this is a gadget you need to invest in.

  1. I have a Fitbit Flex bracelet and it pretty much does the same thing. Is the Jawbone Up difficult to find? I know my Fitbit Flex was on back order. I do love the sleep monitor too!
