There couldn’t be a bigger boom in a single category than in the “wearables”. Tracking your heart-rate, location on runs as well as your steps, sleep and goodness knows what else. So picking a BEST was alwasy going to be tough.
It’s hard to consider them all together in one category, but when it comes to the best – we can’t go past the Jawbone Up 24.
This device tracks your steps and sleep patterns with simplicity. it’s minimalist design makes it easy to wear – people don’t think you’re wearing some high-tech gadget, but everyone is interested in knowing what it is.
The newest version – the “Up 24” has built in bluetooth so your activity is synced to your smartphone throughout the day and report on your sleep after every night. There are plenty others, and many things the Jawbone doesn’t have – but for us, the Jawbone Up 24 is the one to have.
