Did this video help you?

Cameron Fierbaugh: this guy is awesome

Love Bear: I don't like this guy

soccer159611 .: Cool. Thanks for the video. My father got me a JawBoneUP 24 for Christmas and i asked for a Fitbit Flex. He told me at the store there wasnt anymore fitbit flex. So i wanted to watch a camparison to see which i like better. Im going to wait for the FitBit Flex

TheSexybraz: Hi Jason, cool video. Very useful! Quick question... I am mainly after something that will count calories burned. I couldn't care less about steps taken. I have decided on the Fitbit but was wondering if you could change the step goal to calories burned instead. Cheers

cherrybomb921: Is there a way to use the Fitbit if you don't have a bluetooth device? Does it connect to a computer through a USB adapter or something?

Adriana Enríquez Oliver: I had the same experience with the Jawbone Up...

coldfusion167: What a bias review.

playmeagain: my jawbone broke twice and waiting for another one but i am watching this because I'm looking into getting an alternative, thanks for the video

Tyler Wilcox: The UP has been a really good fit for me. Cant give an honest opinion on the Fit, but really love my UP. Jasons experience of it breaking is only a single experience. Ive had mine and never an issue. The app is amazing. Good purchase for me. Great video and appreciate a different outlook Jason. Don't be dogging my UP!

Craig Williams: Thanks for the video Jason. I plan on buying either one of them this Christmas but not sure which would suit me best. I do more swimming than running but was just wondering if the Fitbit Flex is waterproof and wouldn't get damaged while I was doing laps of the pool? Keen to see how much I improve when it comes to fitness this Summer over Christmas (Australia)

Gabi Vonn: Thanks for the review!

Zina Sanchez: Thanks for the review!! Very helpful! 

Vasco Feeney: have you seen razor nabu? they say its good 

Brendan Hinds: Neither are good enough. I want something that also records heart rate along with movement as that is a FAR better indicator for sleep/step tracking. Simply relying on an accelerometer for steps and sleep tracking is soooooo inaccurate. A device which takes measurements throughout the course of the first 72 hours of use and then uses averages based on time of day, using that collated data to give accurate activity information for the particular person would be WAY better.

Jason Zook: Curious about activity wristbands? Don't know if you should get the new Fitbit Flex or the Jawbone UP? Want to see a pair of my basketball shoes? All those things and more in my Fitbit Flex vs Jawbone UP video review!

Jason Zook: This is version 2.

Jason Zook: Hey Robyn, I have not taking the fitbit piece out of the band and kept it in my pocket. I'll try that tomorrow and let you know how it goes.

Jason Zook: Thanks Jay! Save up for the Flex, it's worth it.

getfitover40: I also wore both the UP and Flex and made a YouTube Video review and the end result was that I preferred the Fitbit Flex over the Jawbone UP. Like you I noticed that they seemed to track steps and miles about the same but the Flex seemed to give me at least 500 more calories each day than the UP. Did you see similar results?

mark lee: Great review, think I'll be getting the fitbit flex because I'm about to be on my 2nd jawbone UP...terrible

Jason Zook: Yeah, as I commented below to Francisco, sleep isn't the absolutely best on either. The one thing about the UP that was great was the inactivity alarm (if you sit on the couch for an hour, it'll vibrate and tell you to move). That was a feature I do miss and hope Fitbit adds down the road.

Ishan Chatterjee: Thanks Jason! Super helpful!!!

Jason Zook: What I found with the UP and the sleep alarm was that it didn't really follow my sleep patterns, it just woke me up 30 minutes before my alarm time. Almost always. And you could see different sleep patterns. Yes, the UP does seem to track sleep a bit better, but what mattered most to me was when to go to sleep and when to wake up, and both do that well.

jarikcbol: i've found that about 4 taps *on the side* of the fitbit flex band puts it in sleep mode better than taps on the face. Also, if you have the band to loose, it is harder to put in sleep mode.

Jason Zook: Agreed. Although... The fit of the Flex is way better in my opinion.

Jason Zook: Everything is not fixed now. The Jawbone UP I owned is the 2nd version (and 3 separate ones). Also, doesn't it seem a bit dumb not to have a one-size-fits-all? Force people to know their size before buying? That's just poor product design.

Kizzy Aqueelah: I just got on FitBit today and there is no scanner feature. However, I will tell you this Jawbone's scanner feature is great but it's not perfect. Both apps give you the ability to type in the name of the food and it is usually already stored in their library for you to easily add it to your log. UP also had the ease of adding restaurant dishes to your log because they were also in the library. I'm sure FitBit has this ability as well. There will be times where you have to manually log however.

2Much2Teach: Honestly, FitBit One is the better of them all.

יאיר פישביין: the best thing in this review is that from the beginning he says which one he thinks is better...

Jason Zook: Any specific reasons why? Have you tried the Fitbit Flex or Jawbone UP to compare them?

sydneytrains101: Jawbone up can be submerged to water

Jason Zook: Sure does. Monitors how many times you wake up as well.

Meesh: Considering buying the Fitbit flex for myself I've had a Fuelband and while the watch is a nice feature I like that Fitbit syncs up with services like MyfitnessPal. With the Fuelband I always had to do a ton of extra steps in order to track my activity progress completely. It also tracks a few more things than the FB, it's all about your needs really when it comes to these devices.

Jason Zook: A combination of football and basketball injuries as a kid. My nose always points east!

Owahaha: I guess I will have to do the same thing. wake up at a right time by using a sleep phase alarm is absolutely important.

kaine2kii: The Fitbit One tracks stairs, however, doesn't track heart rate. One downside to the "One" is that you wear it as a clip instead of a band which is why i chose the flex. They cost the same but I don't feel comfortable wearing a clip that could be lost.

Papeeshka: I think the light on the Jawbone Up is very bright. He is right about the fit but I think he was wearing a size too small. The Jawbone wakes you silently and tells you when you were still too long. I don't play sports thought so I can see how that would be annoying.

Jason Zook: Awesome to hear that Victor! I think these fitness bands have a little ways to go, but the Flex is well on its way.

Jason Zook: You're welcome! Thanks for taking the time to watch.

jlaudioking: My choice is made. Thanks

agulia09: is it bad that i chose the ONE because of the display showing me how much ive walked...even though i think this flex a lot

Jason Zook: Not at the moment.

Robyn Bair: Thanks :D

Jason Zook: Do other devices track stairs and heart rate? I know Jawbone doesn't.

Jason Zook: I was shocked to hear how poorly the Gen 1 UP bands did, but figured Gen 2 would be better. Apparently not. So far so good on the Flex and it does WAY better (read: doesn't die) being submerged in water.

spiritflare: Thanks for this review

Pietro Martini: once?????it's enought..when i buy something once it's enought to think thery're crap..3 or more as Jason said it's absolutely not acceptable.I can not even consider a product like that.thank u Jason

Mark Dizon: thank you.... been waiting for your feedback
