As great predecessor of the UP24, Jawbone UP2 review finds that this tracker has a couple of pretty big problems with it. The design is the big mistakes of the Jawbone despite the intuitive Smart Coach and longer battery life. Sleep tracking and the activity modes was so difficult to switch. It wasn’t locked enough keeping the UP2 with the clasp around your wrist. Fortunately, an updated UP2 is released with a drastically different clasp and automatic sleep tracking with its new software update that is carried over to the UP3. So the touch sensitive surface integrated into the top of the tracker is not an issue anymore.
