Paris, je t’adore! Also, my Jawbone Up. Je t’adore aussi! Usually I hide my Up from the daily photo. I wear it daily, but you don’t need to see that all the time. Today however, I coordinated the colors.
Left to right (or bottom to top depending on your perspective) turquoise Tohu Bohu, random bronze Paris bracelet my dad picked up from somewhere, turquoise dots (I don’t know the official name for this one), and turquoise Jawbone Up.
Okay now for my gushing over the Up. I love it. My honey gave it to me for my birthday in April, which was a very hard time for me for reasons. It tracks your steps and sleep and I quickly became obsessed OBSESSED with my step count. The app offers great motivational prompts ie. last Thursday you took 14,300 steps, try to beat that today by taking 14,800. And I try! I really try to meet all the goals. At one point I was in the top 10% of Upers. I was pretty proud of myself. Then, my Up malfunctioned. I contacted them and they sent me a replacement free of charge. Then it happened again, and they sent it again! Easy peasy. I think I sweat excessively when I work out which gets into the hardware, unfortunately. But this is the only flaw with the UP! Also, since my UP I’ve learned I’m a horrible sleeper. I am awake literally 90-120 minutes throughout the night. I blame PTSD. But I don’t think there’s a fix for this
Oh! One last awesome thing about the UP: earthquake in Napa 3 nights ago woke me (and other UPers) in SF at 3:20 am. UP aggregated the data and blogged about it. You can see the stretch of the quake from the epicenter in the sleep disturbances of UP users here Jawbone Earthquake data pretty cool, n’est-ce pas?
