Jawbone UP3 Express Review: Is this the best smartband for women?


Jawbone UP3 is easy to use and lets users share the data with other fitness apps like Runkeeper

The Jawbone UP3 is among the best smartbands in the market, especially for those who tend to need a bit of style on their wrist. In fact, I would go a step further and say this is the best wearable for women.

Jawbone UP3 review


Heaps of data, cleverly presented: the UP3 could be the answer to your motion-motivating dreams

Eminently wearable ; Intelligently integrated data handling and delivery through partner app ; Unobtrusive in form and function

Splashproof, not waterproof ; Fiddly strap clasp ; Frustratingly short charging cable

A truly wearable wearable: meaningful motion data in a sleek and stylish package

Jawbone UP3 Review: A Fitness Fiasco


The UP3 was supposed to be so much better. It was supposed to be fashion-forward. It was supposed to be waterproof. It was supposed to be more intelligent

100% no. Definitely not. Hell no. No. Just no. This thing is a fiasco. I really thought it was going to be the one to beat and take the fitness tracker crown . I was so, so wrong. Most people should just get the Fitbit Charge HR or maaaybe the Basis...

Future-proofing the fitness tracker?

More secure design ; Impressive UP app ; Good sleep tracking

Sensors underused ; Expensive ; Awkward charging mechanism

The UP3 is an impressive feat of engineering, but doesn't deliver with its inclusion of extra sensors and beefed up price tag.

Jawbone UP3 review: 3 months with Jawbone's best fitness tracker


The UP3 gleans data on your physiology and then offers insights on how to be more active, eat better, sleep better and live better.

One of the smallest designs for a fitness tracker ; 5-day battery life with half hour recharge time ; The ability to log workouts and food ; Smart Coach makes data on your physiology easy to understand ; Calculates resting heart rate ; Splash resistant...

Nothing. Maybe the charging method could be better

Jawbone UP3 review: Up there with the best of them?


There are plenty of fitness tracking devices available these days and Jawbone's Up series has been one of our go-to favourites. Now in its third generation, the Up3 is more capable than ever before. The Jawbone UP3 is a great device for the Average...

Great design, good battery life, brilliant app platform, superior sleep tracking, lots of extra features, accurate step tracking

Activities requires more user input than others, only resting heart rate, doesn't always recognise when exercising, fastening not as secure as competitors

The Jawbone UP3 is a great device for the Average Joe, one that can be worn all day and night, but it isn't necessarily going to be the best suited for everyone. It comes down to what you are looking for in an activity tracker.

Jawbone UP3 review: is this attractive lifestyle band a worthy rival to Fitbit Charge HR?


Stylish and packed with sensory tech, but does the Jawbone UP3 justify its relatively high price?

Stylish ; slim ; discreet build ; Good step and sleep tracking ; Not bad battery life

Dodgy charger and clasp ; Doesn't track much else ; Feels overpriced

Expert review by : Michael Sawh (

Jawbone UP3


As I've mentioned in my updated UP2 review, since reviewing the UP3, Jawbone has introduced a second generation version of its heart rate monitor-packing fitness tracker, just months after launching the first one. Confused? Don't worry, I don't blame you.

Sleek, attractive design ; Useful smart coach ; Strong third party app support

Clasp regularly becomes loose but addressed with new version ; Difficult to switch between tracking modes ; Some ocassional syncing issues

Even with the extra features added by the latest firmware update, the Jawbone UP3 has a fundamental flaw with its design and that's really disappointing.

Jawbone UP3 review


It's pretty good for an activity tracker with no display

The UP3 adds a few extra features over and above the UP2, namely the ability to track resting heart rate and REM sleep. Is it worth the extra £40? Only if you really want those features. Don't forget that neither the UP2 nor UP3 can track height...

Jawbone UP3


The Jawbone UP3 tracks activity and sleep, and a new Smart Coach feature in the UP app gives you health advice based on your good and bad habits. While it does measure resting heart rate, it's short on other features, especially considering the price.

Stylish. Comfortable. Measures resting heart rate. Helpful Smart Coach feature. Good sleep monitoring.

Doesn't measure heart rate on demand or during activity. No real display. Finicky tap input mechanism. Not swim-proof.

A Better UP, but Missing FeaturesThe Jawbone UP3 is better than the older versions of the UP bands, but compared with similar fitness trackers, it's light on features for the price. Without heart rate on demand or during activities, the heart rate...
