How to #StyleUP Your Fitness Tracker

As a Community Coordinator at Jawbone, I love scrolling through our #StyleUP hashtag and seeing people share photos of their UP2 or UP3 paired with their favorite bracelets and watches. Our designs look more like jewelry than a fitness tracker, so you can pair easily with other accessories for 24/7 wearability.

As part of our launch on Spring today, we had the pleasure of teaming up with Phyllis + Rosie, a New York City-based jewelry brand to create a few limited edition arm parties, pairing their beautiful designs with our UP fitness trackers. We caught up with them to talk even more deeply about wearable technology and personal style.

That’s how Phyllis + Rosie was born,” says Alana Blank, founder of Phyllis + Rosie, “My true passion was realized in a brand that resonated with every other girl trying to merge classic simplicity with a style all their own.”

Though Phyllis + Rosie merges classic design with personal style, the team is open-minded about incorporating wearable tech into the creative mix: “Wearing an UP band, paired with great everyday jewelry serves a dual purpose,” says Rachel Lavipour, Chief Operations Officer of Phyllis + Rosie. “It helps you maintain and care for your health and body while showing the world that health is important to you, but you don’t have to compromise on other ideals like style.”

To help you uncover a few fashionable picks of your own, Alana and Rachel shared a few tips on how to #StyleUP your UP band:

  1. Play up the everyday classics. “Don’t be afraid to mix and match classics and staples with your UP band. Whether your style consists of a pile of hammered bangles, a delicate ID bracelet, or single bold cuff, layering is the P+R way and the UP band fits in perfectly.  It will only enhance the sophisticated the look and feel of your fitness accessory which means it will become an albeit useful part of your everyday look.” – Alana Blank
  1. Grab em’ by the cuff. “Personal pairing favorites would be the Hammered Cuffs, Xena Cuffs, Chain Cuffs, and the new Flat Classic Cuffs.” – Rachel Lavipour
  1. Rock out with metals. “Have fun, mix and match different metals to bring out the hardware in the UP band. Use multiple layers to enhance the look.” – Alana Blank
