The UP3 is an impressive feat of engineering, but doesn't deliver with its inclusion of extra sensors and beefed up price tag.

- Nick Broughall , TechRadar 


The Up3 is one of the smallest super-slim fitness bands around, but its lack of a display and limited heart rate tracking aren't worth the high price.

The best looking activity tracker on the market

It’s hard not to like the Jawbone UP3. It’s the best-looking activity tracker out there, and it builds on its predecessor’s capabilities by adding a few additional features. But while the UP3 is a solid-enough fitness tracker, it’s expensive, and it’s currently a touch limited in what it can do.

The heart-rate-tracking features, in particular, lag some way behind those found on the rival devices, such as the Fitbit Charge HR, and it’s disappointing that the promised waterproofing didn’t make it into the final product.

Those limitations, coupled with a high price of £129, make the UP3 difficult to recommend right now; I only hope Jawbone will develop the software soon, so you can do more with the heart rate and other sensor data.

Stylish design and a great app but can't outrun the competition

from Expert Reviews

I was really hoping that the Jawbone UP3 would raise the bar, but instead it’s something of a disappointment. The UP3 is expensive, yet doesn’t boast an impressive enough feature set to justify its price. And while the UP app is still the best around, that can’t make up for the decidedly average hardware on your wrist.

An excellent, high-end product

from OutdoorGearLab

The UP3 is, in most ways, a contender for top billing. However, the Misfit is half the price, the Fitbit is more secure on your wrist, and the Garmin has more sophisticated activity data management and motivational power.

The Jawbone UP3 is easily one of the best fitness bands I have used, and I have used quite a lot of them. However, the only fact that bothers me is the lack of the screen and the discomfort while wearing it for extended periods of time.

Functionality wise however, it works really well, although for AED 690, it does make me want to hold back. If I can spend a little more and get a full fledged Smart Watch, which does all of the above, and has a display (it is key for me), then I would get that. But for those who would like to just have a fitness band that doesn’t look out of place when they wear it, this would be perfect.

Good looking, sturdy build

The Jawbone UP3 is definitely amongst the best fitness bands in the market, but it doesn't justify the nearly 15k price tag. The company's own UP2 remains the best fitness band in the market right now.

The UP3 is a decent lifestyle tracker that struggles to justify itself in the face of two rivals: one from Fitbit and one from, er, Jawbone.

If you want an everyday tracker that monitors heart rate, we'd say you'd be better off getting the Fitbit Charge HR. If you're not fussed about what your pulse is, so long as it's above zero and below 200, the lighter and less complex UP2 delivers most of the best benefits of the UP3, for less money.

We gave the Fitbit Charge HR 3.5 stars when we reviewed it. The Jawbone UP3, originally, fell just short of that. The short story was that Fitbit’s top fitness tracker offers 24/7 heart rate monitoring, incoming call alerts and an OLED display, for a smaller price tag. The bigger picture was that Jawbone made such a big noise about the UP3’s capabilities, and its intentions of being a genuine game changing device, that it was hard to not be disappointed when it came to using it. However, the addition of passive bpm readings, as well as reacting to user feedback on the clumsy capacitive touch controls, makes the UP3 a much stronger offering - although it still doesn't allow for real-time bpm training. It's still no game changer but we're genuinely impressed with the quick turnaround of tweaks for the UP3 - it's encouraging to see a brand react in such a swift and positive manner.

The UP3 adds a few extra features over and above the UP2, namely the ability to track resting heart rate and REM sleep. Is it worth the extra £40? Only if you really want those features. Don't forget that neither the UP2 nor UP3 can track height climbed, whereas the similarly priced Fitbit Charge and Charge HR can. (They can also tell you when someone is calling your phone, a feature that's particularly useful.) What the UP3 is good at is monitoring your health and fitness, as well as motivating you to become better on both counts. Laying aside the problems I had with my test bands, the UP3 is a good tracker, made better by the recent hardware and software updates. Whether or not it's for you will depend on the features you want. Plus, don't forget that the UP24 is much cheaper these days: you can pick one up for the bargain price of £50 if you hunt around.
