Weve got some bad news if you were expecting to find the Jawbone UP3 fitness tracker under your Christmas tree. According to a new story from Wareable, the device wont be launching until early 2015.
Jawbone told the publication that buyers who preordered the device after its introduction in November will receive the UP3 early in the new year. Anyone ordering the $179 device now is greeted with a shipping time of eight to nine weeks.
Early buyerscan contact Jawbone, and the company will offer a $40 credit or a Jawbone Move tracker, which usually retails for $50.
The UP3, along with being an activity tracker, can monitor your heart rate and different sleep stages. Its designed by Yves Behar, and the built-in battery can last for around seven days before needing to be recharged.
Jawbones tracker will also face some pretty stiff competition with the Apple Watch slated to hit the market around the same time. Even though it will start at $349, Apples wearable will provide many of the same features.
