The Jawbone UP3 is discounted today through Amazon by $60, dropping it to just $119. That’s a heck of a deal for a fitness tracker that not only looks great compared to others, but isn’t a giant nuisance to your wrist as it tracks your heart rate, sleep, steps, calories, etc.
I’ve used a handful of fitness trackers over the years and have found myself settling into Jawbone’s UP line. I’m currently using an UP2, but am actually thinking of taking Amazon up on this deal because the UP3 offers heart rate tracking.
Wondering why I have settled into Jawbone? Their software is the best. It interacts so well with third party apps like Nest, MyFitnessPal, Runkeeper, Withings, and other lifestyle or fitness services, that your life tracking almost happens automatically on their platform. Not only that, but they just added automatic sleep tracking and passive heart rate monitoring.
In the end, the UP bands are also the best looking and are incredible thin when compared to Fitbit and Nike options. That’s not to say that Jawbone’s UP bands are perfect (they are far from it), but they seem to have the best overall package, at least to me.
