Can the Fitbit Ultra or Jawbone UP improve your lifestyle?

Summary: Nike just announced they are launching their Fuelband fitness tracking device, but until it launches we have the Fitbit Ultra and Jawbone UP available now. I have been using both of these devices for a few weeks and have a preference for one of them.

  • This is a typical day of activity tracking, as measured by the Fitbit Ultra.

  • The Fitbit also tracks sleep and as you can see this is how the data appears when you sync after a night of rest.

  • In comparison to the Fitbit, the data from the Jawbone UP shows more details for light and heavy sleep. Both devices give you "ratings" for the quality of sleep based on some unknown measure.
