Jawbone Up App for Android Receives Update, Now Features UP24 Wireless Syncing

Jawbone UP24 owners, rejoice! Jawbone announced today that the companion app for the company’s UP line of fitness bands has been updated to support wireless syncing via Bluetooth 4.0, a feature that was previously exclusive to iOS devices.

The UP app is packed to the brim with wellness tools like a physical activity tracker, workouts log, and nutritional info notebook. The new Bluetooth 4.0 wireless syncing feature aims to make everything a little more convenient; UP24 users don’t have to worry entering most information manually, as the band will use low-power wireless to continuously populate the app with updates. In addition, the UP app can be used to schedule a vibrating alarm on the UP24 to wake or alert you. 

The UP24 retails for $149.99, and the updated app is available for download from Google Play.

      I loved my Force…never thought I’d get a rash from it because I don’t tend to have any health problems, but I did, exactly two months from purchase. I’ll wait for the next one!

    biggest regret buying the 2nd gen UP band. 5 of them broke on me. You would think i was doing something wrong but i wasn’t. its a poorly made device. Jawbone finally caved and gave me credit to their store so im just picking up a jambox.

      I am on my 4th, how did you convince them to give you a credit? I tried on my last one and they didn’t budge.

        what issues did you have. the same issue every time or all different ones. I just kept demanding a new one. Also the 5th one the sent me last 3 days before it died. they tried blaming me at first and i told them im not an idiot…then they tried to blame my phone (droid maxx), then they blamed kit kat. They then said they put new firmware on the band so it disabled the multicolor LED and just made it always green and red. and then somehow when trying to reset my band it would not unlock anymore. it would only charge. I tried multiple supported devices….no dice. I kept having issues where the battery would die and the thing would charge and die within 12 hours, as opposed to 10 days. Each time they said it was a unique issue and they never seen it before etc etc, yet i always saw the same problem reported on their forum and it happened to me 4 out of 5 bands. They said that firmware addressed that – guess not, or at leats it was not tested enough

        i finally kept asking to be escalated and then finally said ok fine send us back the band and here is a promo code for the value of your band you paid. If you bought it directly from them, then they would refund you.

          this is why I won’t touch a Jawbone. every iteration is plagued with defective devices. I’ve seen it since the first one and I don’t think it’s gonna change anytime soon. I’ve had the force for a while with no problems at all. I want the amiigo to come out but they continually push it back. it’s getting annoying because i think it’s going to the first truly useful fitness band.

    Waiting for Kellex to gripe about the Nike Fuelband not having Android support.

    This is probably obvious but the Up24 is only compatible with Android 4.3 and 4.4 since previous versions don’t support Bluetooth 4.0 LE.
