New devices that are coming out recently may just be an improvement of a previous device. You can even say that it is a new version or model of a particular device. The most recent gadgets to come out that may be considered as new ones include the fitness trackers. These devices aim to help people monitor and keep track of their health by using a variety of sensors placed inside a wearable device. Companies like Jawbone are slowly trying to define how future fitness trackers should be. It is still a constantly evolving field as such companies are trying to find new ways of making such devices even more appealing to a greater number of people. The Jawbone UP4 Fitness Tracker may be one of them.
The Jawbone UP4 is one of two new fitness trackers the company has recently introduced in the market. Jawbone is adding a feature that may be considered a first in its line of fitness trackers or even in its type of market. The Jawbone UP4 comes equipped with an NFC chip that allows users to make mobile payments using the device. Jawbone has partnered with American Express in order to make this possible. Users of the Jawbone UP4 will be able to make mobile payments in many American Express contactless terminals found in many major cities in the country and even in the world. Users of the Jawbone UP4 can enter one credit card details into the device via the UP app. But all the data entered is being stored on the protected and secure servers that American Express maintains.
The Jawbone UP4 still features the sensors that help wearers keep track of sleep, activity as well as heart condition. This fitness tracker stands out as the very first of its kind to also offer a mobile payment feature. The Jawbone UP4 fitness tracker is expected to be available sometime this summer. There is no word yet on how much it will cost.
