Jawbone, the San Francisco based company of wearable technology is going to soon become a part of the Indian market. The company has sent out press invites for its launch scheduled for 10th September.
Founded in December, 1999, Jawbone products give a better understanding of sleeping patterns, diet and physical movements. With over 1000 patents to its name, Jawbone is one of the leading names in the wearable industry.
The company is introducing its UP product range in the country which includes UP2 and UP3 to be made available for sale on Amazon.

The app in the gadget is equipped with Smart Coach – Jawbone’s coaching system which turns data into personalised guidance, giving you insights and challenges to help you improve your sleep, activity and diet. The UP activity trackers are of three kinds:
UP Move: This is an entry-level tracker that connects with Jawbone’s UP platform and Smart Coach to help the user lose weight an maintain over-all fitness. It’s available in five different colours and allows 6 months of battery life. Powered by MotionX technology, it enables the user to track their daily progress. It is available at a price of 4,999 rupees.
