Jawbone Announces UP Platform for iOS, Connect Apps to Its Wristband
Jawbone today announced its UP Platform for iOS and unveiled 10 apps that have integrated with the UP wristband and app system. Jawbone also announced it will soon open the API for others to integrate services with UP or build entirely new experiences.
Beginning today, the UP app version 2.5 for iOS enables you to integrate any of these 10 services : IFTTT, LoseIt!, Maxwell Health, MapMyFitness, MyFitnessPal, Notch, RunKeeper, Sleepio, Wello and Withings.
For example, now you can:
• Log a run or bike ride with RunKeeper or MapMyFitness, and view your workout data in UP, including maps of your route, to see how last night’s sleep may have impacted your speed or distance.
• Step on your Withings Smart Body Analyzer and automatically import your weight into UP to track it in the context of how you sleep, eat and move, and get support from your UP teammates as you work toward your goal.
• Create IFTTT Recipes to receive nudges based on your UP activity, like texting you to go for a run if the weather is sunny, or tweeting at your workout partner when you reach 15,000 steps.
• Complete a workout with a live personal trainer in your home or hotel room using Wello, and log the workout directly into UP.
Once connected with an app through UP, you can view your activity from UP and any partner app in your feed, lifeline, and trends. You can also use your UP data in selected apps – including things like detailed sleep and movement data, your food or even your mood – to make those experiences even richer.
You can download UP by Jawbone from the App Store for free and get the wristband here. Developers can learn more about partnering with Jawbone here.
