Not something that lasts
on 12 April 2015
Bought Jawbone and loved it. Until it failed after about 6 months. Jawbone replaced it. The new one has lasted another 6 months and failed, just after the one year warranty. I shall not buy another one.
The weakness on both wristband is the button. When new, it actually clicks and you know it is working. With time, the action becomes less precise - seemingly as if the mechanism has retracted into the moulding although it may just be full of dried sweat. Eventually, you cannot press it anymore and the device is dead. Mine no longer responds to anything - no lights, even on charge.
This is a pity. The device is a good idea. But my wristwatch doesn't fail every six months so neither should modern, wearable technology. Luckily, there are now other options available to do the same - even a wristwatch
