Jawbone announces The Up Band to make you healthier


Jawbone has produced some really innovative and good quality audio products over the years, including this bright boombox and these rather futuristic headphones.

Now the brand has created a kind of bracelet called The Up Band which has been specially designed to keep a close eye on your body. Used alongside a mobile app, the band monitors everything from your movements to your sleeping patterns in an attempt to make you fitter and healthier.

I'm never sure whether gadgets that closely monitor our bodies actually work to change our habits or just make us feel even worse! However, the recent popularity of apps such as Runkeeper and Nike+ certainly proves that people are increasingly using their gadgets to improve their fitness, so maybe The Up Band is the next step...
