The UP2 has a function to slowly wake you up from your sleep, or to notify you to move around if you have been idle for some time, using a gentle vibrating motor. Users will also be able to set reminders to go to sleep, workout sessions, or to take your daily medicine.
The UP2 connects to a Bluetooth enabled smartphone to sync fitness data in real time. The band is water resistant and holds a rechargeable lithium battery that lasts up to seven days on a single full charge.
Jawbone’s Smart Coach technology learns your personal habits and gives you personalized suggestions to reach your desired goals. The suggestions are tailored to improve your sleep, diet and activity.
The new Jawbone UP2 now costs 479 AED, and is available in two UAE- Black Diamond and Light Grey Hex. The band can be purchased at leading electronic retailers such as Virgin Megastores, iStyle, Dubai Duty Free, Jumbo Electronics, Sharaf DG, and EMax stores.
