Shape Up Saturday Series: Misfit vs. Jawbone

12:00 AM

Below pictures of Jawbone are from a previous post about the Jawbone that can be read here.

As some of you know I’ve been super into fitness lately.  Last year the company that I work for started this new program where everyone got a fitness tracker.  Well I hated the one that was provided to us by the company because it would count any movement as steps.  I could be putting my hair up and it counted hundreds of steps.  I decided to get the Jawbone Up 24.  I had that for a pretty decent amount of time, until one of my coworkers told me about her new tracker the Misfit.  First of all I LOVED the design and what it looked like and she had good reviews about it so I waited a month or two, researched other trackers, but ended up getting the Misfit.  So, I wanted to do a little Pros and Cons of both the Misfit and the Jawbone Up24.

Misfit PROS:
1.       Pretty and sleek
2.       Waterproof
3.       Battery powered-battery life should be about 6 months I’ve had mine for a few months and there’s no movement on the battery, still at full.
4.       Great interface and has a point system based off of how much you use –much harder to cheat with this tracker if you’re one of those people who like to cheat!
5.       Interchangeable bands (to be bought separately).

Misfit CONS:
1.       No tips or as many choices in terms of workouts to log (but on the plus side, it automatically tracks if the activity was light, moderate, or vigorous!)
2.       The vibrating alert that tells you to get up lasts much longer than it needs to and sometimes when you have it set to alert you of texts and phone calls it will vibrate for a while when it comes to phone calls.  Meaning if you pick up the phone call the Misfit keeps vibrating.
3.       You have to sync it on your own, it doesn’t automatically sync like the Jawbone did.  Sometimes it has trouble connecting to Bluetooth.

Jawbone PROS:
1.       I LOVE the app. Even with the health tips and its alerts when you’re not sleeping enough!!
2.       I still like the wrap, but its just so easy to break and get dirty.  I was cleaning mine ALL the time.
3.       Cheaper but longer lasting!

Jawbone CONS:
1.       Discounted
2.       Not waterproof
3.       Easy to cheat with –very basic
4.       Have to charge it every few days.
