A fitness tracker changed my husband’s life. Since he started wearing one, he’s logged over 3,500 miles and gone from a very sedentary person to a “walker”. For me, tracking my running distance and pace is very motivating. There are countless times when I put in a last push to try and get a personal record or run just a little bit further to get in that round mile logged. My next goal is to address nutrition and “macros” (macronutrients like protein, carbs and fats) in my diet. Did you know a fitness tracker can help you do that?
Technology and fitness are perfect partners. Technology lets you track, analyze, and find ways to take your fitness level to new heights. And… they do it style! The Jawbone UP2™ and UP3™ are thin, sleek, minimalist accessories. The world’s most advanced tracker is also the worlds smallest and still has MORE POWER with a full week of battery life.
So where do you find the latest and greatest fitness technology? Well, Best Buy, of course. Best Buy is THE destination for Health & Fitness products! They carry the newest from Jawbone, a cutting-edge name in fitness technology. Jawbone is introducing two new devices, the UP2™ and UP3™. These new Jawbone fitness trackers are the thinnest, most style-savvy available.
Why track? In order to improve your health, you have to know what you are eating, how and when you are sleeping, and your activity level. Once you have that information, UP® is able to intelligently understand you, helping you make better choices to achieve your goals smarter and faster.
How does it do that? The official answer is, “The UP® System gets to know you over time using its advanced sensors and sophisticated algorithms.” So, um, let’s just agree, it does it.
What then? You get progress reports, graphs, and tons of data. If you are the data-geek type, you can analyze ’til the sun goes down. If you are like most people and not that into reports, no worries, UP™ gives you feedback in conversational-type messages. Your UP™ coach will tell you what to do and what not to do.
So what exactly does the UP™ track anyway? You will be shocked at how much more the UP™ tracks than just your steps. Many trackers record steps and sleep. The Jawbone UP™ goes beyond that. Using the UP™ app, you can see amazing details and that info is analyzed by the “Smart Coach” who will provide suggestions for you. For sleep, for example, you will see not only how much sleep you get but also the quality of that sleep, recording when and how much “light sleep” versus “sound sleep”. Even how long it took you to fall asleep. You can set a goal of how much sleep is ideal for you and compare actual to goal. After you have accumulated some history, you will receive encouraging and motivating messages depending on your data. Smart Coach is then able to give you suggestions to maximize your sleep and improve the quality of your days.
Here’s a comprehensive list of what the Jawbone UP3™ tracks:
- Type of Activity
- Idle Time
- Active Time
- Calories Burned
- Active and Resting Heart Rate
- Total Sleep
- Light Sleep
- Deep Sleep
- REM Sleep
- Food Score
Wow, right? So now you’re thinking this must be really expensive. But NO, the UP2™ starts at only $99.99. Fitness trackers have come a long way and the price has been decreasing as the functionality increases!
What is the difference between the UP2™ and the UP3™? The UP3™ measures and tracks your resting and active heart rate using advanced bioimpedance sensors. There’s more to your heart health than beats per minute and the UP3™ helps you take care of the most important organ in your body, your heart.
It’s time. Use the technology that can actually make you healthier. Try a fitness tracker for yourself or a loved one. It might just be a game changer. Click here to check out the Jawbone UP2™ and UP3™ at Best Buy.
