Jawbone Up refunds come out sooner
Jawbone late Wednesday started sending out its promised refunds for the Up early. Having promised the money back in four to six weeks, the company started offering them less than three weeks after detailing the program. Owners can still get replacements, without having to return their existing units, or else get software updates for existing models.
The Up launched with both issues keeping a battery charge and with syncing issues. Jawbone was relatively quick to acknowledge the problem and has promised fixed hardware.
When working fully, the Up tracks exercise and sleep. It can vibrate as an alarm or reminder. The iOS-only mobile app syncs data for the sake of progress or challenges and lets users track their eating habits. [via Wireless Goodness]
