Jawbone UP Finally Launches In Singapore

*UPDATE* You can get the Jawbone UP from Apple Store (Singapore) as well but the waiting time is 8-10 weeks!

Jawbone UP finally came to Singapore! I am not too sure the exact date it goes on sale. It was announced back in late March 2013 and I saw it selling in Challenger (Funan) on 10th April 2013. I bought it on 14th April 2013 after contemplating it for 4 days.

The official retail price is S$189.90. So far, I only saw it being sold at Challenger (Funan), EpiCentre and infinite stores. I think give it some time and it will be selling at all Challenger branches.

I totally recommend getting it from Challenger, because if you are a member, you will get 10% discount and hence after the discount, it only cost you S$170.91, which is the cheapest price you can get in Singapore.

Many people are comparing the Jawbone UP with the Nike+ FuelBand, let me tabulate some of the difference down (feel free to add on to it by suggesting it in the comments):

Nike+ FuelBand Jawbone UP
  • Both keep track of your daily activities like calories burned and steps walked
  • Both uses a three-axis accelerometer pedometer
Has a 20-color LED display to display your progress and a 100-white LED display to display information and tells the time Only has two LED display to let you know whether it is monitoring your movement or sleep
Sync wirelessly via Bluetooth Sync via the 3.5mm audio jack
Charges via standard USB port Charges via a proprietary cable (from 3.5mm audio jack to USB)
Requires a computer (Windows/Mac) to setup Can only be setup using your mobile phone (iPhone/Android)
Will not have an Android app anytime soon Has an Android App
  • Nike+ FuelBand has a better social element to it because of its large Nike+ Community
  • Does sleep monitoring
  • App allows you keep track of your food (doesn’t have much local food options) intake
  • Has a vibrating motor to alert you
  • Jawbone UP iOS App is better designed than Nike+ FuelBand iOS App

One thing I really like about Jawbone UP is the really well designed and gorgeous UI on the iOS app, the Nike+ FuelBand iOS app is pale in comparison. I did not use it to keep track of my food intake because the choices of food is limited and I could not find any local (Singapore) food in it.
