“At Jawbone, we embrace the promise of the Internet of Things. We can only put all this together if we work with others… This notion of an open ecosystem is critical to making the Internet of Things a success.” – Hosain Rahman, CEO & Founder. Earlier this month, our CEO Hosain Rahman shared his perspective on the huge potential of connected devices to deliver on the promise of not just the “Internet of Things”, but the “Internet of You”.
Hosain argued that products like our UP fitness trackers can empower the highly personalized experiences we want to deliver, and allow our connected devices to be “truly smart”— all in service of a great experience for the customer. Members of the UP community are currently able to connect their UP accounts to dozens of devices and partner apps that enhance their UP experience. Today, we’re excited to take that offering to the next level by launching our very own online Marketplace.
To put it simply, we’re bringing the best of the Internet of You to our customers, in a very real and tangible way.
The new Jawbone Marketplace lets you unlock the best of UP with a curated selection of devices and apps to put you on a path to a better you – whether that means moving more, eating better, improving your sleep, or creating a more streamlined home through automation.
We’re thrilled to announce that the following best-in-class launch partners – whose products span categories across Fitness, Sleep, Food, Lifestyle, Smart Home and more – are now available for purchase on Jawbone.com:
