With so many new fitness wearables entering the market, like the recently announced Microsoft Band and the Fitbit Surge, we guess we can’t say we’re too surprised to learn that Jawbone could have something new in the works as well. This is according to sources of VentureBeat and The Information, both of whom have learnt that Jawbone has a couple of new fitness wearables that could be unveiled soon.
According to their sources, Jawbone has two new products in the works. One of which will feature a low price point, thus making more accessible to the masses, and the other will sport a sleek new design along with a heartbeat sensor. Assuming the latter is true, it could very well compete with the recently announced Microsoft Band which offers a similar feature as well.
The low cost fitness wearable could retail as low as $50 and could be called the MOVE. As for the other wearable, it will most likely be the successor to the UP and will be known as the UP3 and could retail for around $180. Assuming this is true, it makes it cheaper than the competition, although we have to wonder if it will be keeping to the UP’s minimalistic design and do away with a display.
In any case the rumors are claiming that the new wearables from Jawbone could be announced as soon as this week, so if you liked Jawbone’s previous offerings and are eager to learn what else they might have, do check back with us later this week for the details, until then remember to take it with a grain of salt.
