This year we shared some health and fitness data stories that people loved—but some of you may have missed. As Community Coordinator at Jawbone, I want to help you get 2016 off to a great start. So, here’s a list of my favorite data stories from 2015. I hope it helps you make more informed, healthy decisions next year, and every year!

Stepping UP The Fashion Game

Anna Wintour once said, “There’s something about fashion that can make people very nervous” when describing the 1.7 trillion dollar industry that’s known to be one of the most fast paced and toughest to work in. Behind all the glamour and neverending search for the latest trends is the hard work of hundreds of designers, editors, make-up artists, buyers or atelier workers—keeping the fashion world turning.

Every year during Fashion Week, all eyes turn to four select metropolises around the globe, where the crowds gather to leave the short lived past behind and look towards the future. One of the four cities is London, where our friends from Dazed Magazine decided to have a closer look at the people working the fashion game to answer the question, Who works the hardest in fashion?  To uncover the answer, they styled UP a group of insiders (a makeup artist, freelance writer, event planner, editor, photographer, designer and intern) and one outsider with an UP3, hoping to gain some insight.

How We Move and Sleep in India

India is one of the largest countries in the world, ranking second by population and seventh by land size. It is also one of the most culturally diverse countries with 23 official languages, a multitude of cuisines, and a variety of religious beliefs and practices. We have seen some of this rich diversity living in India, and meeting people and hearing stories from across the country, but our experiences have been limited to a few cities, and we’ve always wondered about parts of the country we’ve never been to. So when Jawbone launched in India, we were curious to see if and how this diversity gets reflected in sleep and activity data from thousands of people wearing UP bands in different parts of the country. What moves Indians? What makes them keep late nights? Which cities get the most sleep in India?
