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...

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


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: a feature-packed disappointment


The Up3 offers only minor improvements over Jawbone's last model. And the few new features aren't very useful at all, especially when compared to what others offer in its near-$200 price range.

Elegantdesign ; Comfortable to wear ; Advanced sleep and movement tracking ; Battery life lasts a week

New features like heart-rate monitoring aren't that useful ; Expensive for what you get ; Still no built-in display

In the end, it's easy to be disappointed by the Up3. Even after its long delay and the omission of waterproofing, it still had the potential to be a different sort of fitness tracker. Unfortunately, it offers only minor improvements over Jawbone's last...

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...

Jawbone Up3 review: Don't spend up for this one


A thin fitness band that measures heart rate, but it doesn't do it the way you expect. We wore a Jawbone Up3 for two weeks for the definitive verdict.

Compact band design; one-week battery life; fantastic fitness app for coaching and lifestyle tracking.

No on-band display means you need to check phone for stats; band clasp difficult to adjust; heart rate limited to resting heart rate and sleep tracking at night. Can't be worn swimming.

The Up3 is one of the smallest super-slim fitness bands around, but its lack of a display and limited heart rate tracking aren't worth the high price.

Review: Jawbone Up3


Six months ago, Jawbone promised the world. Then it built a step tracker.

Wrist-worn wearable reads your heart rate, counts your steps, and tracks your sleep. Buzzes gently to awaken you at the optimal point in your sleep cycle. Nice slim design fits comfortably next to your wristwatch. It's OK to wear it in the shower....

For all the data it collects, the software doesn't offer enough suggestions to improve your habits. Accuracy is often lacking. $180 cost is too high -- the $100 Up2 does almost all of the same stuff, and the features exclusive to the Up3 are the ones...

Jawbone Up3 review: just buy an Up2


Jawbone's back. After months of delays (that didn't go unnoticed by customers), its latest flagship fitness tracker, the Up3, is finally shipping. It's "the world's most advanced tracker,"...

More informative sleep tracking than the Up2 ; Weeklong battery life ; Excellent and motivating mobile app

The silver one is ugly ; Gives only resting heart rate ; Terrible clasp ; Not truly waterproof
