Jawbone UP $20 @Woolworths Macquarie Centre (NSW)

140

just spotted Jawbone UP large size at Woolworths Macquarie Center

not sure this is store specific or nationwide

still 9 left on the shelf when I left, and they are in lane 5

just a reminder, people say there are some technical issues about this product, such as battery life, sync issue, and Jawbone already released new generation like UP2 and UP3

      Enrol in this course — https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/196322

      Neg voters keep asserting that it is a waste of government/taxpayers/your money, and that it simply teaches you how to use a Fitbit in a gym. Mind you, these assertions were made without a shred of evidence to support them. In fact the course is HECS exempt and it teaches you (in one module amongst five) how these data can help guide you to a healthier lifestyle.

        It's like you're getting kick backs with the cross promotion to your post.

          @alvian: my answer would simply be - a fitness tracker helps you reach your goals and motivates you to get active. I hope people aren't expected to do 2 week courses just to decide if they should be active or not.

    I have one of this, you need internet to sync to phone, it does have issue with syncing from time to time, for $20, it is okay buy. Pay $99 last year from Dick.

    FYI this is the original, which requires a fully working combined microphone headphone socket on your android/iPhone to sync

    Jawbone UP vs Miband?

    •  

      No competition. MiBand.

    A warning about the Jawbone UP from Koolfang in previous deal.

    Just a word of warning on these: the QA on them was pretty terrible. very widespread reports of poor battery life, sync issues etc. some people had issues on up to 5 consecutive replacements, the failure rate seems massive. bought one for $65 a couple of months back and after a week or so the battery wouldn't last 8 hours with all features turned off.

    As far as i know jawbone have improved things for subsequent models, but caveat emptor on these ones.

    I received a Jawbone UP as a gift and could never get it to pair with any device other than an iPhone.

      Did u try the steps of a soft and hard reset? I believe that was a resolution for pairing issues.

        Tried both over a dozen times - tried it every time the app was updated as well - no luck. In the end, gave up and returned it.
