Jawbone’s delayed Up4 still isn’t available in SA, but it seems the company is quite content to push ahead with its recently introduced cheaper Up3 instead.
The wrist-worn health tracker is available now for R2399 in-store from Dion Wired, Clicks, Dis-Chem stores nationwide. You’ll also be able to order it online via Superbalist.com and TakeALot.com stores. The Up3 retains Jawbone’s sleek design aesthetic, but drops some of the more advanced features found in the Up4. It does gowever sport heart rate and skin temperature monitoring.
While useful, those metrics aren’t essential to everyone and the Up2 does everything else you would expect from a fitness tracker – recording steps, sleep and calories burned, as well as food logging, should you want a more complete picture inside the Smart Coach app. Given we won’t be too impressed with the Up3, you might be better off with the Up2 or one of its competitors anyway.
