Only 18 days until Christmas and you still can’t find the geek in your life a suitable gift? We’ll today’s post will be a winner if they are going to start working out and trying to be healthy like 99% of the modern world will be come January 1. If you haven’t yet heard about it, let me introduce you to UP by Jawbone. Jawbone, well-known for their line of Bluetooth headsets, have created the UP which marries seamlessly with your iPhone or iPad via Bluetooth. What UP does is track your calories, miles walked, steps and other metrics. The coolest thing about UP, in my opinion, is that is tracks your sleep. It closely tracks how much time collectively you were awake in the night, the amount of light sleep and deep sleep you had, and your sleep quality. Pretty cool. Right now it is only available for iPhone/iPad, but hopefully in the near future it will become available on all Android platforms. Go get it!
