Jawbone UP3 main

Jawbone has announced its most sophisticated wrist worn activity band yet, the UP3.

As well as tracking your movements during the day it can also capture information about three stages of sleep – light, deep and REM, to help you understand your sleep patterns better and ensure you get the best quality sleep you can.

The features of the UP3 include:

Multi-sensor Platform: The advanced multi-sensor platform includes a new tri-axis accelerometer, sophisticated bioimpedance sensors, and skin and ambient temperature sensors. Using this technology, UP3 delivers resting heart rate – a key indicator of your overall heart health. Jawbone promises further features to come through future firmware updates.

Advanced Sleep: UP3 captures detailed sleep stages including REM, Light and Deep sleep, providing in-depth information on your sleep and what you can do to improve it.

Advanced Activity: New smart algorithms allow UP3 to automatically identify workouts and classify your activities, including running, cross-training, tennis, and many more.

Smart Coach: UP3 connects with the Jawbone UP App for Android and iOS, and through this offers Smart Coach which keeps track of progress and gives personalised guidance to help you reach goals faster.

Attention has been paid to the design of the Jawbone UP3, and there are two versions, Black Diamond and Silver Cross. It has an anodized aluminium framework and overlapping watch-style clasp so that it can be adjusted to fit your wrist.

The Jawbone UP3 is water resistant up to 10 meters and has up to seven days battery life.

The Jawbone UP3 will be available for £149.99 from this winter at Jawbone.com and at major consumer electronics stores.
