Jawbone UP 2 Review
Jawbone is famously known for its wearable products, it is one of the companies that enhances our health through their products. If you have heard or seen Jawbone products you would notice that their fitness trackers are fashionable compared to other brands.
In this post, we will introduce to you the Jawbone up 2 trackers. Some of you might already know that the up2 is out in the market in two different designs, and the newer design is just so cool. However, in our post we will be explaining the design of the new one but they share the same features.
“Wear it fashionably” is the slogan of the new designed Jawbone up 2, and we have to admit it is for sure a fashionable band and a fitness tracker. It will make you feel good wearing it; especially for the ladies out there.
The up2 is slim and lightweight which make it comfortable. it has two small straps with a hook on one of them, that is being hooked to an adjustable bar. This design adds more security to the band, so it won’t fell off your wrist. The Jawbone Up2 comes in different colors to choose that one that fits you the best. The band comes in one size that fits everyone (wrist sizes ranging 140mm–190mm).
The Up 2 tracker from Jawbone is known for its simple and comfortable use. It is in a form of a wristband, and it tracks your active and inactive moments. The tracker tracks your steps, the distance walked and calorie burned. Not only that, the jawbone up 2 also tracks your sleep automatically; which means it automatically detects your sleeping and awake periods. Which we find as a great added feature because it is so difficult to remember to log in your sleeping hour manually. The band also has a smart silent alarm feature; which means it will vibrates to wake you up within 30-minute window prior to the time you set. For example; if you set an alarm to wake you up at 6:00 am , the jawbone up2 will vibrates somewhere between 5:30 and 6:00 in your best time according to your sleeping pattern.
What is great about using Jawbone Up 2 is that it will not only track your active moments, but it will also reminds you to get active and move around once you have been still for a specified period of time. Not only that, the jawbone up 2 acts as your coach and gives you tips, insights and personalized guidance to improve your fitness.
