UP is a fitness tracker and app that allows users to track many aspects of their lives. It has a fitness advisor based on personal data, and can pair with other commonly used apps, like Runkeeper, MyFitnessPal, FitStar and Lose It, among many others. There are four different wearables, three of which are bracelets while the fourth clips-on. All of these devices also track sleep.
By wearing the device during sleep, UP can track how long a user slept and how well, breaking down how long a user was in a deep sleep versus a light sleep, how long it took to fall asleep, how long they were in REM and how many times he or she woke up during the night. Users can also set sleep goals and view their averages. The app will also provide suggestions and can serve as an alarm, waking users at the optimal time.
UP is available as a bracelet for $99.99 and up.
