    Seems pretty cool, it tracks your movement, sleep, has a feature to "wake you optimally", and ties to an iPhone app which lets you do challenges, share your progress, and take pics of what you eat so it can analyze how it makes you feel.

    My wife got a small one from best buy, they were out of large so I ran to the apple store for mine. Anyone else?

    I got one. It's probably going back to the store. I want to see what Jawbone will do in the future. Thankfully, Target has a 90 day return policy.

    Mine isn't going back to the store, but for right now I'm considering it an expensive pedometer. Their software really needs a lot of work. The challenges are cool but the social aspects and accountability suck right now.

    I'm contemplating on buying one... but $99 is a lot.

    i was all set to get one based off the marketing stuff i'd read. then i found out what it can actually do.

    track your meals = take a picture of your meals. no calorie/nutrition info at all.

    track your workouts = pedometer :confused:

    the whole sleep tracking thing looks cool, but i think people are going to be really disappointed with this thing.

    I bought it Friday, returned it Saturday Morning. Maybe if it was bluetooth, and half the price.

    I had the wife bring one home for me today (AT&T 20% off coupon) and they are sized small. I'm not a big guy but the Large wasn't big enough so back to the store it goes (no XL yet). The package has a built in fit guide and I highly recommend using it. :D

    No Jawbone Up for you! Next!

    After seeing the horrible support from aliph on their headsets I wouldn't ever consider one of these.

    I got one today. It is different. I will try it for a couple days and see how it goes. I am curious if it pics up tasks such as typing as a "step".
