Overall, I found the Jawbone UP2 to be a fairly accurate step and sleep tracker, and if anything, it underestimated daily step count. This may sound like a bad thing, but I'd rather my tracker underestimate step count, encouraging me to get more active, than to overestimate step count.
Unfortunately, it was also fairly finicky. If it was too tight or too loose, it wouldn't track steps very well. If I had a long sleeve shirt on that interfered with the band's movement, it wouldn't track very well. And, like almost all bands, if you're engaging in non-walking or running activity (f...

What a difference a year makes. In the case of the Jawbone UP2, it's not entirely in a good way. We've already acknowledged that the Jawbone UP24 wasn't the perfect activity tracker, but it got plenty right. In many ways, the UP2 feels like a step backwards.
While it might look more elegant to some, we preferred the previous design. And although Jawbone has dealt with the UP24's biggest flaw – the problematical cap – the solution doesn't entirely fix the problem.
The software hasn't come on leaps and bounds either, although there's plenty to like about Jawb... Full review
The redesigned Up2 is stylish and more secure than older models. While it may be missing more advanced features seen in recent competitors, an attractive price and superior software make it one of the best fitness trackers available today.
Not only does Jawbone's software provide in-depth information on your sleep and daily activities, but it also offers smart coaching and daily insights to help you live a healthier life. This software is what propels the Up2 ahead of the competition. You don't even need an Up2 band to take advantage of Jawbone's software (you can use your phone,... Full review
The Jawbone UP2 is better than the older versions of the UP bands, but compared with similar fitness trackers, it's light on features. The UP3 is better, but you can get more for your money with another tracker. If you're in the market for an all-day fitness tracker, consider our aforementioned Editors' Choices: the Fitbit Surge, the Mio Fuse, and the Basis Peak. They all include heart rate monitoring, though they all cost a good deal more than the UP2. The Fitbit Charge doesn't have a heart rate monitor, but it does have a sharp display with caller ID for just $30 more than the UP2. If you... Full review
If your heart is set on joining Jawbone's ecosystem, then the UP2 is almost definitely your best point of entry. With a more robust body than the UP24, yet without the unjustified price tag of the UP3, it delivers a good experience at a reasonable price. But in this competitive new market, you can't help but feel that Jawbone has slipped up a bit with this generation of devices.
Its app is still arguably the best out there for delivering the most useful information to users, but the hardware itself, while attractive, fails to deliver a frustration-free experience. Given that... Full review
