The Jawbone Up24 wireless fitness tracker is now available for $150

Jawbone introduces their new Up24 wireless fitness tracker as well as Jawbone 3.0

| Wearable Computing News | Posted: Nov 13, 2013 9:10 pm

Jawbone releases the new Up24 and it looks promising. The Up24 is Jawbone's first sleep and fitness tracker that works wirelessly, as opposed to the older models of the UP. Jawbone didn't add wireless Bluetooth capabilities in the previous models because they said it would make the product's hardware chunkier and reduce battery life. The new Up24 however uses a Bluetooth Low Energy radio that doesn't affect the battery really, and gives the device seven days of use. The Up24 is still water-resistant and approximately the same size as the previous model.

Along with the Up24, Jawbone has also released the 3.0 version of their iOS app. It'll now contain some features only usable by the Up24 but is still mostly compatible by the current UP model. You can now wirelessly use the app to activate a vibrating smart alarm, instead of having to plug it in to your smartphone. If you forget to put it into sleep mode it will also now estimate how much sleep you got using its new sleep recovery tool. The device also includes an activity log that will show you your sleep, food, and fitness.
