We’re still committed

At Jawbone, we’re just as excited today about helping people live healthier, happier lives as we were when we launched UP® in 2011. Time and time again, I stand amazed at how our creative, talented team works together to build solutions that help us all achieve our health goals. It’s a thrilling time to be working at Jawbone, and we can’t wait for the opportunity to share what we’ve been doing. 

Unfortunately, not everyone has access to what we witness everyday. As some of you may have recently seen, there have been a few incorrect media reports that Jawbone is exiting the wearables business or going out of business altogether. These reports are unequivocally false. This speculation appears to emanate from wrongful insinuations made in a blog post in which the particular digital publication has since made a “Correction.” Jawbone was not contacted on the specific insinuations prior to the post and other media picked them up before the digital publication posted a correction, further spreading this false information.

To be clear, Jawbone remains wholly committed to innovating in and building great wearables products. We have never been more excited about our pipeline of technology and products and look forward to sharing them with the world when ready.

We have always managed our inventory positions according to internal business processes and strategic product lifecycle objectives. This situation is no different and we will continue to support all of our products. UP2, UP3 and UP4 are still hugely popular and continue to sell well. We’re also continually inspired by stories of how our UP® community is using our products to live better.

We look forward to sharing what’s next with all of you soon. If you’d like to receive all the latest updates and news, we invite you to sign up here.
