Earlier today, Joe Casabona detailed to you his experience with the Jawbone Up, a bracelet that belongs in the new category of “quantified self” gadgets and tracks your steps, sleep, and calorie intake.
About a month ago, Matt Mullenweg (of WordPress fame) blogged about 2 pieces of technology he had been wearing in order to track some aspects of his health. One of them was the Jawbone UP, which I debated buying for about 60 seconds before actually buying it.
Ever since, it’s been quite the conversation starter, with people asking me what it is and what it does and how it works. Well, using a heart-rate monitor and pedometer, the Up works hand-in-hand with your Android phone, syncing data and giving you some nice personal analytics through its aptly named Jawbone Jawbone Up Android app.
