Jawbone UP is in Singapore

Even with all the hype and hoopla around wearable technology these days, I wasn't really interested about these devices until my husband told me about Jawbone UP. He was blatantly hinting about wanting it for Christmas last year but there was a glitch with the first edition and they had to do a recall and test it all over again. Still, that didn't deter me. It seemed such a holistic device - it can track your sleep patterns, your eating habits and your exercise and movement and churns out super sexy data (yes, data can be sexy) so you can figure out what you need to change with your habits so you can sleep, eat, exercise more and generally, live better.

Below are images from the Jawbone UP website:

And good news, it's now available in Singapore - look for it in Apple resellers (we got ours at iStudio in Novena Square), but it only seems to be available here in Black and Blue (which depending how you look at it can either be classic or boring). Retail price is SGD189, just slightly more expensive than US retail price, but then you'd have to figure out how to ship to Singapore which might be a bit of a hassle for some.

Here are pics of the actual Jawbone UP.

Great design idea - having the plastic fit guide as part of the packaging (see that oval-shape above) so you can measure your wrist without needing an actual tape measure.

My husband demonstrating the Jawbone UP in action.

Discreet label which is actually hidden from view, so the Jawbone UP just looks like a trendy rubber bracelet.

Can't wait to see how it works, especially the sleep tracker, my husband is such a light sleeper and can get quite grumpy when he hasn't had enough sleep so we're hoping this will help. We'll see how it goes.
