Jawbone finally rolled out Android support for its popular UP24 fitness tracker today after first releasing the wristband device back in November. The company originally only offered its accompanying UP app for iOS. Android fans of UP24 were still able to use the device, but had to physically plug it into a PC to access their data instead of simply reading it on their devices via Bluetooth.
"Now with the launch of UP24 on Android, our entire community can enjoy the benefits of these insights in real-time, with continuous feedback and in-the-moment notifications to help them achieve their goals," said Jawbone vice president of product management and strategy Travis Bogard. "Android users have been incredibly active in the UP community, and we're thrilled to bring UP24 to the Android platform."
Jawbone's UP24 device uses its Bluetooth 4.0 LE connection to track and coach your activity, reminding you to accomplish your set goals, pushing you to get some exercise when you spend all day sitting around, and even encouraging you to go to sleep earlier. The UP24 lasts about 7 days on a charge even while maintaining a wireless connection to your smartphone.
If you already own an Android smartphone and a Jawbone UP24, your fitness tracker just got a lot more useful. If you've been thinking of picking this wearable device up but wished it came with an Android app, now's your chance. The UP24 starts at $149.99 and comes in either black or orange.
