Jawbone has announced that its UP24 activity tracker wristband is available to buy in 29 additional countries from today, following a four month period of being US-only.
The wristband wirlessly connects to an Android or iOS device via Bluetooth to track and provide continuous feedback designed to help you hit activity goals. As well as providing goals to keep you active, the wristband also tracks sleep – and provides reports on how your sleep and activity levels are related.
If you’re really dedicated to the sleep aspect, there’s also a dedicated iOS app called UP Coffee which tracks caffeine intake over time to demonstrate the effect on your sleep patterns.
Available in three sizes (small, medium, and large) and two colors (Onyx and Persimmon), the device is available in the UK for £125 directly from Jawbone’s website, or via John Lewis, Apple or Amazon too. While the device is available in 30 countries (new countries listed above) now including the US, the app supports only 12 languages – English, Spanish, French, Dutch, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese (Brazilian), Russian, Simplified Chinese, and Traditional Chinese.
