Jawbone UP2 is the newest wristband based on the previous model UP24. Since that time, Jawbone has consolidated its nomenclature and new models are called UP2, UP3, and UP4. Latest UP2 band has all the features of its predecessor U24. The biggest change occurred in the appearance of the band, which is considerably smaller than its predecessor is, and its style has been adapted to the new style of other bands proposed by Jawbone. The good news is that although the new band starting price was higher, now it is below $100. It also forced the price drop of the old bands, which can now be purchased for under $80. Read More
