Jawbone Announces UP Platform for iOS, Unveils 10 Integrated Apps
Jawbone has announced its UP platform for iOS and unveiled 10 apps that have integrated with UP, the wristband and app system that helps you know yourself so that you can make smarter choices.
Beginning today, the UP app version 2.5 for iOS enables you to integrate any of these 10 best-in-class services: IFTTT, MapMyFitness, MyFitnessPal, Notch, RunKeeper, Sleepio, Wello, Withings and US-only services LoseIt! and Maxwell Health.
For example, now you can:
- Log a run or bike ride with RunKeeper or MapMyFitness, and view your workout data in UP, including maps of your route, to see how last night’s sleep may have impacted your speed or distance.
- Step on your Withings scale and automatically import your weight into UP, to track it in the context of how you sleep, eat and move, and get support from your UP teammates as you work toward your goal.
- Create nudges using IFTTT based on your UP activity, like texting you to go for a run if the weather is sunny, or tweeting at your workout partner when you reach 15,000 steps.
- Complete a workout with a personal trainer in your home or hotel room using Wello, and log the workout directly into UP.
Once connected with an app through UP, you can view your activity from UP and any partner app in your feed, lifeline, and trends. You can also use your UP data in selected apps – including things like detailed sleep and movement data, your food or even your mood.
UP by Jawbone 2.5 for iOS, featuring the UP Platform, is available to all UP users today as a free download from the App Store. Access to integrated apps will vary based upon each app’s regional availability and language settings, and apps offered in English-only will not be translated to match the language settings in your UP app.
