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.

  • The Fitbit Ultra comes with a plastic holster for you to use when you need to mount the Fitbit on a belt or thicker piece of clothing and don't want to risk prying the Fitbit apart.

  • To charge the Fitbit you place it on the dock with the metal contacts on the back matching the dock contacts. This is also the same station that is needed to sync up the Fitbit to the website.

  • To track your sleep you need to place the Fitbit in the included wrist band. By contrast, you can see the Jawbone UP is mounted on your wrist at all times and to track sleep you simply press in once on the button.
