Jawbone UP is the app-powered wrist band that inspires you to feel better and live heathier ... UP tracks every move you make — it even reminds you to move more.
Silent alarm clock and sleep sensor for iPhone/iPad. Designed with Harvard sleep expert and pro sports sleep coach. LARK wakes you silently and gently- you’ll even snooze less. The LARK wristband (lovingly known as wrist pajamas) uses an actigraphy microsensor to detect your unique sleeping patterns. No syncing, it automatically shows up on your phone.

Latest news about Jawbone UP and Lark:



30.09.14. New Jawbone iOS app doesn’t require an Up wristband. Jawbone released a new iOS app that allows iOS users to track activity and sleep, even without a Jawbone Up wristband. Instead it pulls in data from Apple Health app that pulls data from other sources. Users can also manually enter sleep data into the Jawbone Up app, track calories and share and challenge other friends using Up to track their exercise. All of these stats can be analyzed using Jawbone’s various graphs and views, and they will also sync with Apple’s Health app on the iPhone. With the release of the new app, there are now two apps called “UP by Jawbone” in the App Store. The old app still requires a Jawbone UP or UP24 fitness wristband in order to use the app, whereas the new app can, for instance, gather step data from your iPhone’s gyroscope and motion coprocessor.



18.07.14. Jawbone UP Gets Better at Tracking Your Food. Before today, Jawbone UP fitness wristband users had to manually enter every meal item, searching Jawbone's database for the type of food, then entering portion size. It was tedious and inconvenient. You needed to add things over and over, and it took 15-20 taps to go through that. With the update (UP 3.2) the app suggests both your recent entries as well as common meal pairings; enter a fried egg, and you'll see suggestions to add toast, coffee and bacon. Even better, the app now connects to a menu database for restaurants. Powered by Foursquare's location engine, the database includes calorie information for individual menu items if the venue provides it (more common with chains), plus it can crowd-source nutritional info from UP users for specific items over time.
