I have recently purchased a fitness tracker called Up move by Jawbone. I am trying to do more exercise and I wanted to see how many steps I did daily. I was torn between getting this one and the Fitbit. I decided to get this one as I didn’t want to wear a bracelet I wanted a more discreet fitness tracker. This one clips on to clothing and I got it in black so isn’t very noticeable if I’m wearing black.
This tracker really motivates me to do more steps. You don’t need to charge the fitness tracker it comes with a watch battery which should last a few years. You then download the up app which will track your steps and sleep. On the tracker if you press it once it will come up with an orange symbol showing it is tracking your steps and if you press again a blue moon will appear showing it is tracking your sleep. It tells you how much deep sleep and how much light sleep you are getting. It also tells you how long it took for you to fall asleep. You can set goals for how long you want to sleep and how many steps you want to do daily. Mine is currently at the recommended levels of 8 hours for sleep and 10,000 steps.
It allows you to track different exercise such as swimming, running or yoga, you can then see how long you did this for and how many steps you did. There is also the option to add food so you can see how many calories you are burning versus how much you are eating. Some of my friends have this tracker so I have added them to my friends list and there is a leader board where you can see how many steps they are doing a week. I recently did a duel with a friend to see who did the most steps in 3 days, this really motivated me to do more steps as I’m quite competitive and wanted to win.
Lightweight and small, you can clip it to jeans, skirts, tops etc
Tracks sleep this helps motivate me to go to bed earlier
Tracks calories and can add foods eaten
Tracks activity such a running or swimming
Add friends to help motivate you
Takes ages to sync, some days it fine but other days I either have to restart my phone or wait half an hour for it to refresh how many steps I have done
Overall I would recommend this tracker, if you want to purchase click the links below. On the Jawbone website it is £39.99 but on Amazon it is £23.99 for the black tracker and £27.99 for other colours. If you add the app below you can get free money to spend in high street stores!
The Bounts app which can also be use with Fitbit or Apple’s health app. Lets you earn vouchers to spend in Amazon, Boots or Debenhams and many other places just for tracking your steps. You’ll get 100 extra points when you log your first activity when you sign up with referral code munday39680. Bounts members earn five points for each day you track 7,000 steps with a tracker, plus an extra five points each time for connecting your Facebook account (I set it up to share with ‘only me’ so it doesn’t annoy everyone).If you do 7,000 steps every day and with the 100 initial points you should get a £3 voucher within 90 days or £5 in about 4 months. I have only just joined so haven’t got vouchers yet and it will take a while to earn enough points. But this is pretty decent as I am aiming to walk over 7,000 steps a day so getting paid for it is a bonus. Click here to sign up and enter my referral code munday39680.
