Apple’s patent wars with Samsung are the stage for a multi-billion dollar fight for cash, bragging rights, and ideally control of the entire smartphone industry. Jawbone vs Fitbit is equally vicious and petty, but with far less at stake.
As you sit at your desk and chew your morning muffin, consider the complicated interlocking structure of your jaw. How did you manage to evolve such a thing? What you’re eating through is essentially a badly deformed but useful gill, and we’ll tell you how it got to be that way.
Jawbone arregla los errores absurdos de sus pulseras cuantificadoras. Una actualización de software hará que UP2, UP3 y UP4 se pongan a la altura de la competencia. Por un lado, ya no hará falta dar un toque en la pulsera para entrar y salir del modo sueño: los tres modelos detectarán automáticamente cuándo estamos…
Like many of you, I work in front of a computer. They’re powerful devices, but they also suck your will to live and trick you into never, ever getting up and going outside. Reasons like that are why fitness trackers were invented.
The UP3 was supposed to be so much better. It was supposed to be fashion-forward. It was supposed to be waterproof. It was supposed to be more intelligent than any other fitness tracker. It isn’t. I spent the last couple weeks trying to like this band, and I just can’t do it.
I’ve wanted a fitness tracker for years. Something discreet with crazy good battery life that not only quantifies my movement but also packages the data in a way I can understand. The UP3 promised that and more last fall, and now it’s finally ready to ship this week—but it’s bringing along two new friends.
Mientras Apple y Samsung maniobran con sus respectivas plataformas para pagar desde el móvil, Jawbone acaba de lanzar su particular apuesta incorporando un chip NFC a su última pulsera cuantificadora. El resultado es la nueva Jawbone UP4, una pulsera que hace (casi) de todo a un precio cuestionable.
Cuantificadores que solo están pensados para deportistas, frente a otros que más bien parecen un artilugio de moda escasamente útil. Jawbone quiere romper con esa dualidad y acaba de presentar dos nuevos cuantificadores, uno de los cuales, el UP3 aspira a ser algo intermedio: medidor de actividad, pero a la vez…
Right around this time every year, the world starts to make sense. It gets darker earlier and I get tired earlier, which means I get a better night of sleep. It turns out that I'm not just imagining things. When we go to bed is still determined by that impending darkness, even if our time zone tells us something…
La cantidad de smartwatches presentados en esta última IFA, y la llegada del Apple Watch han comenzado a propiciar movimientos en el terreno de los medidores de actividad. Jawbone ha sido uno de los primeros en reaccionar. El fabricante de la pulsera cuantificadora Jawbone Up anuncia la próxima salida de una…
Jawbone's excellent app will now sync with rival wearable devices from Fitbit, Pebble, Android Wear and yes, the iWatch, when it comes (via HealthKit). And oh, there's a firmware update for the Up24 that doubles its battery life from one week to two. What's not to like? [The Verge]
Well, here's one cool, unexpected use for all that data your fitness tracker is culling: Jawbone has released a chart showing the spike in wide-awake UP users in the wee hours of Sunday morning, when a 6.0 earthquake shook up the Bay Area from San Francisco to Napa.
No, that's not an picture of Jawbone's now-iconic Jambox Bluetooth speaker. It is, in fact, the new Samsung Level Box mini.
People in Melbourne get the most, those in Tokyo the least. No, get your mind out of the gutter: we're talking about sleep here, and how much of it the inhabitants of certain cities manage to actually get.
Jawbone's portable Bluetooth speakers are great to use pretty much anywhere but if, like me, you're tempted to take one into the bathroom when you shower, its new water-resistant models might just be up your street.
It's kind of hard to believe, but Jawbone—a company that was built on Bluetooth—didn't have a wireless radio in the first two iterations of its fitness tracker, the Jawbone UP. That finally changes today with the introduction of the Jawbone UP24.
For all the gazillions of wireless speakers out there, Jawbone's Jambox is almost certainly the best-known. Last year the company introduced a Big Jambox, so it shouldn't really be any surprise that they'd come along with a smaller one as well: Mini Jambox.
Like the smartphone patent wars of yesterday, there’s a new arms race happening and it’s all about wearables. Similar to the spats going on between Google, Apple, Microsoft and smartphone makers, it won’t matter to me or you. At least not anytime soon.
