PROS

  • Jawbone's Smart Coach feature is accessible on the Up Move, giving you feedback and encouragement in conversational sentences.
  • The Up Move has a replaceable (not rechargeable) battery that lasts for months.
  • The unit tracks many of the same metrics as more expensive fitness trackers, including steps, exercise, and sleep.

CONS

  • The fitness tracker is water-resistant but not waterproof; you can wear the Up Move in the rain or the shower, but you can't take it swimming.
  • The Up Move has no vibrating motor, so you won't be able to use it as a silent alarm.
  • Design-wise, this isn't the best-looking fitness tracker on the market.
The Jawbone Up Move is an entry-level fitness tracker that tracks many of the same metrics as its more expensive competitors--including steps, exercise, and sleep. The Up Move is a small pendant that comes with a clip, but it can be transferred to a wristband that is sold separately. Perhaps the biggest benefit of the Up Move is that you have access to Jawbone's app, which includes an intuitive and accessible Smart Coach feature.

The wristband, meanwhile, is a weird addition. It uses a new, unique side clasp mechanism to attach to the wrist.

While some trackers can feel like they leave you confronting a wall of information, Jawbone makes it all a lot more accessible with a Smart Coach feature. This gives you feedback and encouragement in conversational sentences, with "Today I will..." challenges getting you to be more active.

One of the best benefits of the Move, however, is that you don't ever need to charge it. The Move comes with a standard watch battery, so it should last for at least six months, just like Misfit's tracker.
