Good price for last year's jawbone activity tracker, perfect for starting out instead of paying £90+ for something you may only use a few times

The wrist bands on these break. It’s a common fault and unlike most of the competitors they are not replaceable. So when it happens the whole activit tracker has to be thrown away or claimed on warranty. (Jawbone no longer provide support so you are reliant on Argos for this)

The software is also poor and no longer updated.


Cheap yes but for a reason.

The silver version also available for £9.99

Will this provide more accurate data for sleep monitoring than a Xiaomi mi band 2? Or do they both use the same technology.
Is this compatible with iPhone? It says Android on the spec, but no mention of iPhone. Also, is there any way of knowing if it is the 2nd generation or 1st? Apparently there were strap problems with the generation 1.

iPhone yes
Ive had one of these and a mi band. Would say the mi band 1 is comparable. Mi band 2 is much better, but the Jawbone app is easier to use and looks nicer.

The Jawbone up 2 is bracelet-like and I used to get lots of comments about how pretty it is. There is no screen which saves on battery life but means you have to go into the app to look at your data. It also doesn’t measure heart rate. Mine just stopped charging eventually after about 2 years.
Overall I’d say stick with the mi band 2, esp if there will be no ongoing support for this.

Are there other colors for choice?
i had one of these last year the strap broke within 3 weeks. no contact from the company as they have closed. and you cant replace the band it is all one piece. avoid
Yep, as others have said, the strap will break, with certainty after some weeks (maybe months) of wearing.

Terrible design flaw which ruined an otherwise great product. I remember reading something about their return rate on these, it was > 60%
Argos@ebay has Microsoft band 2 for £49.99.
took a punt on this. For £9 cant go too far wrong
I bought one of these when they were £100. Absolutely terrible. I had 3 replaced before I gave up. Just don't bother.
Shame because the software was quite good
Strap broke on mine after three months, Ni support from Jawbone. Avoid at all costs.
AVOID THESE AT ALL COST. I just bought a UP3 and it arrived DOA. Doing some research and it seems that the majority of these will be DOA because the internal battery has been standing still for too long and no longer charges.

Don't waste your time.
I took a punt on this, couldn't find a Xiaomi band for less than twice the price of this that didn't come from China and I couldn't be sure wasn't a fake.
I've had a jawbone and the Mi band 2. And honestly I would recommend the Mi band 2 every time.
These are great BUT the bands aren’t replaceable and they crack and break just at the side of the hard plastic sensor.

HTH
For this price I'm sure there's no reason to moan.

But as a longer term solution I'd suggest looking into Mi bands at the lower end, or Fitbit for those with a higher budget.

Jawbone are still, as far as I'm aware in liquidation (going bust), so without a 3rd party app to sync this with it could end up being pointless.
ordered. thanks OP!

Closed?? Im guessing you're referring to the retailer?? Because as far as i can see Jawbone are still very much alive -- If you have the original invoice I would try contacting Jawbone directly and seeing if they would be willing to help. you might still be covered by warranty.
There's a reason these are as cheap as they are. I had this band about 2 years ago and the 9 months I used it before I got a Fitbit were frustrating. The band snapped a total of 5 times, meaning I had 6 bands. I still have that 6th band knocking about somewhere because I never bothered opening the package. The plus side to that is that they were all replaced very quickly, and free of charge. In addition to the poor quality band, the app is incredibly slow to update even when you force it to sync, which is sort of the whole idea of having a smart band in the first place.

I'd definitely recommend getting a cheaper Fitbit, I know the non-HR Alta bands can be found quite cheaply these days, which is what I had, and it was great. The app was great, the display was great and the fact most of my friends had Fitbits made it even better with the whole challenge system built into the app. One downside is that the bands also get a bit worn, but it took about 6 months for that to happen. Fitbit are happy to replace these, and they can be replaced instead of having to get a whole new band which is good. Or you can buy a number of unofficial bands online. I asked for a replacement colour I ended up not liking and bought a black band off Amazon for about £3 that was exactly the same, minus the logo, but felt sturdier. Well worth it!

If you fancy spending a bit extra, I bought a Gear S3 during Black Friday, with staff discount for a little over £150. It probably can't be found for that low right now, but I don't regret the investment at all.

Anyway... Long story short... Don't bother with this unless you're happy with it breaking every month or so. instead invest in one of the cheaper Fitbits!


Edit* Just looked at the picture again and remember how poor the straps were. If you don't break it you're probably going to lose it! I remember a handful of times that I remember it falling off when I was just walking. But hey, £8.99... I guess it might be worth it? Probably not though...

Apparently, on the strap/fastener issue, they released an "activity clip" which would stop the thing from coming undone. Says they'll give them away for free, but I don't know if they'll still honour that. Could be worth a try though.

They're also liquidating their assets, so don't expect the servers to be up for too long anymore (they are needed to run the app/band and it will be useless once they're shut down)
Cheap for a reason. Straps break on them. Read the reviews and avoid

Personally, this particular product lacks enough information and is of poor quality.

But for £9 probably worth a punt -a few of us here paid top price and are still disgruntled.

Hi thanks for your reply I tried contacting them on the phone (their phone lines just had a closed message on them) and multiple times on twitter and no response so I gave up and binned the broken band. Now have a 12 month old MiFit 2 still going strong

I meant if the products themselves were in China, rather than a warehouse in the EU/UK. Buying directly from China is a pain that can take months if you ever actually get the item at all.

They don't sell in Europe because of all the patent infringements. You have to import it yourself though gearbest £17.30, aliexpress, bangood or lightinthebox(banned on here) are few examples of shippers

Mi band 2 is good but battery last a few days not 20 and the app is basic and not able to integrate with my fitness etc

Not really, you just need some patience. I buy things from China every week, from various websites, and while they all take 30-90 days to arrive, but they do nonetheless arrive consistently. China's manufacturing supplies the world; just embrace it.

This was exactly my experience in under a year. Do yourself a favour and get a MiBand instead if you want a cheap one.

Weird, I've got a Mi Band 2 and it does last a heck of a long time - would say at least 2 weeks and that's with additional notifications - I don't have bluetooth switched on my phone all the time mind so wonder if that's the difference. With mi-band tools for android it switches on bluetooth automatically in the morning to wake me up and allow me to snooze my android alarm clock by tapping the tracker - a very very bad habit but I love it

I had one of these just over a year ago, was absolutely useless! Had to send it back to Jawbone for a refund, replaced it with a Fitbit Alta, which is far superior to this. For £9 this isn't much of a problem but don't expect it to work or last.
