Jawbone is offering a great return program for those with malfunctioning devices.
Jawbone Up is a cool techy bracelet for iOS users who want to track their sleeping habits, fitness habits, and things of that sort. It is used to help get you in shape and annoy you when you are doing things against good habits. For some, this seemed like a really cool idea. After a while from its release, users started reporting problems with the device. Sadly, the bracelet suffered from poor battery life and syncing issues. Jawbone has ceased production of the Jawbone Up bracelet, but they have promised that they will continue to offer application updates for the current users of the bracelet.
Obviously, for a device like this, battery life is essential or else it will not be able to record your habits for use in the iOS application. If it doesn't have the ability to do that, then it's a pointless product. Jawbone will probably take this time which it has stopped in production of the Jawbone Up bracelet to try and perfect the design flaws that are leading to the syncing and battery problems. By then, we should be able to discern a really awesome product on the market that will help people get into shape using their iOS devices. The Jawbone CEO, Hosain Rahman, has been quoted as he said:
