A new diet aid will be hitting the market soon – a diet wristband that claims to help you lose weight. But will it really do the trick and be a magic diet solution?
The Up diet wristband by Jawbone looks like a simple bracelet that you wear on your wrist, but the makers of it hope that it will play a valuable role in helping you lose weight. Of course, just wearing a standard bracelet is unlikely to do a lot for your dieting ambitions, but the Up diet wristband is a bracelet with a difference.
Designed to be used alongside a smartphone, the diet wristband comes with a special app for your phone that tracks and monitors your movement, exercise, sleep patterns and nutrition 24 hours a day.
The Jawbone Up wristband hasn’t been released onto the market just yet – it will apparently be released in theUSlater in the year – so it’s still unclear exactly how it will work. However, I assume some degree of user input will be required to let it know what you’ve eaten and consumed on a daily basis, as one little wristband is unlikely to be that clever and instantaneously know what you’ve been up to!
If you really need to lose weight and are struggling to eat the right diet or cut down on your daily food intake, then the device might not be enough to help you meet your goals – sometimes we just need more input, support and advice.
But it sounds like an intriguing idea and the app might be useful for helping you record your daily food, drink and exercise habits and help you analyse where you could improve, or where you’re going wrong.
No price details have been released yet (all I know is that several different colors will be available) but I’ll be waiting for more details with interest and look forward to finding out how people get on with it.
What do you think? Would you try out the diet wristband? And have you come across any other similar diet apps on the market? I’d love to hear your views! http://www.bellayoscura.com/partir-es.html
