The Jawbone UP MOVE is a $40 activity tracker that monitors daily activity and sleep patterns.  It comes with a lightweight wristband or belt clip so wearing it is effortless.  After downloading the Jawbone UP App to my smart phone I was ready to give the wristband a try. I liked that I could track my movement, seeing how many steps I took and the amount of calories I burned during the day.  But, I especially liked the feature that tracks how well I slept, showing me movement during the night and even showing a detailed graph of my sleep waves. This gave me good insight on how my day and night activities affect each other and this awareness is key to understanding my fitness and lifestyle goals. Other features of the UP App include Smart Coach, a customizable dashboard to monitor your progress, and the ability to be exported to a number of other fitness and sleep apps.  Although this is considered an entry-level fitness tracker, the UP MOVE gave me everything I need for monitoring activity.  The name alone is a reminder that for a healthier life, get up and move.
