Jawbone UP24 now supports Android
The stylish fitness tracker Jawbone UP24, which previously worked only with iOS devices is now available for Android users to enjoy with all (except some of the most recently added iOS) features available on the just released UP 3.0 Android App
The Jawbone UP24 was released towards the end of last year and was an improvement on the company’s first wearable fitness tracker which lacked the ability to wirelessly synchronise with your iPhone (and now Smartphone) via Bluetooth 4.0. Vice President of Product Management and Strategy for Jawbone, Travis Bogard says that the continuous feedback and notifications provide by the band can help people to make sustained changes to their behaviour and they are ‘thrilled to bring UP24 to the Android Platform’.
Despite the lack of a screen, the Jawbone UP24 has risen to the top as one of the best performing fitness trackers to grace our wrists. The discreet and stylish design make it one of the more comfortable bands to wear and is not too conspicuous. And the clean and intuitively presented app has impressed many iOS users, and will likely appeal to those on Android too.
In a year that Android devices are headed to make their way into the hands of more than 1 billion people, and Google’s recent announcement to release an Android SDK for wearable devices; this would appear to be another feather in the cap for the world’s most popular OS platform.
