Jawbone announced two new activity trackers, addressing the middle and upper tiers in its portfolio, and including a device with mobile payment capabilities.

The news comes as the company begins shipping Up3, which while announced late last year has been delayed due to manufacturing issues.

Up2 (pictured) is the successor to Up24, with a design that is 45 per cent smaller than its predecessor. It is said to offer the “same, stylish new design” as Up3, but retailing at $99, to provide “the ideal entry point for anyone starting their fitness-tracking journey”.

The wearable features a rechargeable battery that gives up to seven days use on a single charge, with a shower and splash-resistant design for “continuous 24/7 wear”. New features are also promised through firmware and app updates in future.

The device is available from 19 April through various US channels, with an international launch to follow later this year.

Jawbone Up4
Up4 is being launched in partnership with American Express, and includes an embedded NFC chip to enable payments using a registered Amex card. Targetting US customers, it will be available this summer.

The device features the same design and multi-sensor platform as Up3, to deliver advanced sleep and activity tracking and heart health monitoring.

Pricing details have not yet been revealed.
