I’m a Verizon Wireless Ambassador but we purchased this product
Sitting in the hospital waiting for more news on my grandmother was keeping kept my activity level quite low. I was sitting watching TV and trying to work but it was so hard to keep my mind on anything. Sigh…..
Well good news is my husband purchased me a Jawbone Up at the Verizon Store before I left. He read my post about the Fitbit Flex and how much I wanted it, well the Jawbone works just as well. The only thing that bothers me is that I have to tell it when I fall asleep and when I wake up so that it will properly chart my sleep. My stats are pretty darn low right now and I’m going to work to get it up.
I was checking out the programs that I can schedule with my Jawbone Up and I set up an alarm to wake me up. It took me a week to realize that the alarm only works when you remember to set your Jawbone Up to sleep mode. What does work for me every day is the 15 minute reminder to get up and walk around a little bit. You have to remember that every step is a step in the right direction to becoming a more active person. Every step you take helps you lose more weight and I’m on the move to lose 15 pounds this summer. That’s right I want to lose at least 15 pounds. I’ve been using it to track my activity and it’s been helping me to remember to jump up and run in place or walk around the house mostly I’ve just been making my family laugh as every 15 minutes I do something really silly. LOL, it’s needed with all the emotions currently going on around here.
Track Your Activity
Wearing UP captures a complete picture of your day, so you don’t have to guess how active you are. UP tracks your steps, distance, calories burned and time spent active vs. idle
I find the Jawbone Up to be a light bracelet that I can wear in the shower and sleep in. It’s comfortable and I only take it off when I have to charge it. Here is a sizing chart for you to decide which bracelet will fit you best.
Jawbone UP Sizing Chart
Step 1: Get a string, a marker and a ruler. Wrap the string snugly around your wrist. Mark the string where the two ends cross.
Step 2: Use a ruler to measure the string from one end to the marked place. Then see the size guide to the right to determine which wristband is right for you. If you’re between two sizes, we recommend choosing the larger size.
