UP App Notification

UP sends a variety of push notifications to your phone so you know your current status and once you've achieved a goal for the day. For example, you may receive a push notification once you've accomplished a "Today I Will..." Your band notifies you of these events as well by flashing the notification icon and vibrating. Check the UP App to see the full notification message.
