The American Express Company and Jawbone Announces New Partnership

The American Express Company and Jawbone have announced a new partnership giving eligible US American Express Card members the ability to tap to pay with the new Jawbone UP4 fitness tracker anywhere American Express contactless payments are accepted in the US. This partnership and product launch marks the first time consumers can use a wearable fitness tracker with an embedded NFC chip for Amex payments, redefining what is possible with a 24/7 activity tracker. The new Jawbone UP4 tracker is expected to be available for purchase on jawbone.com this summer.

BlackRock Reportedly To Invest In Jawbone

BlackRock, Inc. (NYSE:BLK) reportedly may invest in AliphCom, Inc. (Jawbone). According to sources, BlackRock could be investing as much as $300 million into Jawbone. According to Fortune, neither Jawbone nor BlackRock would confirm details of the transaction, which isn’t complete and could yet fall through. But sources close to both parties confirm the two are in advanced talks for the investment.

Jawbone Introduces UP MOVE

Jawbone announced UP MOVETM, a new, easy-to-use activity tracker that helps get fit, lose weight and have fun doing it. At just $49.99, UP MOVE by Jawbone is the simplest way to get credit for steps, exercise and calories burned while also capturing detailed information about sleep. And UP MOVE lets learn more with Smart Coach ­ the UP® App's intelligent approach to personalized guidance and deeper insight that helps move more every day. Press the face of UP MOVE to see its sleek, hidden LED display light up to show progress toward goals at a glance. Press once to display step progress, twice to display the time, and three times to display sleep from the prior night. Made from a durable, nylon-like anodized aluminum, UP MOVE comes in five brilliant colors with corresponding clips so the user can easily fasten it anywhere. Place the tracker discreetly in the coin pocket of jeans, or use it with the clip to wear it on sock, belt or bra. Colorful hypoallergenic wrist straps are also available in two widths, slim and standard, allowing to wear UP MOVE on wrist and mix and match it with personal accessories. UP MOVE comes with a replaceable battery that lasts up to six months, eliminating the need for regular recharging. It uses the same circular batteries found in digital watches and remotes, which are long-lasting and easy to replace. The accelerometer built into UP MOVE counts daily steps without missing a beat, no matter where go or how wear it. UP MOVE can also be worn in bed to accurately track sleep, including hours slept and sleep quality. For optimum results, wear the comfortable wrist strap accessory during sleep. UP MOVE connects wirelessly with Jawbone's UP App via Bluetooth® Smart, syncing regularly in the background to track progress throughout the day and night. Smart Coach, the UP App's intelligent guidance and insight system, stays with every step of the way to help understand what changes should make, and encourages to move more each day. You'll get a deeper understanding of how diet, sleep, activity and other choices affect overall health and well-being, and you'll be motivated with personal challenges like drinking eight glasses of water in a day, or taking 2,500 more steps.
