Battle of the Fitness Bands—Jawbone UP vs. Nike FuelBand: Well-Balanced
You wouldn’t know it from how much we talk about cookies, but Birchbox staffers are a pretty healthy bunch. We love our veggies and mind-clearing workouts, and are always up to try the latest fitness class or nutrition bar. Which is why we have new regular column: Well-Balanced. Check back weekly for our latest wellness obsession.
Clockwise from top left: Hayley, Katia, and Mollie sporting their fitness trackers.
It all started when Katia got a Nike FuelBand and would randomly do jumping jacks in the office to hit her points goal. Then, Hayley showed up wearing a Jawbone UP, and suddenly she was showing off her sleep cycles and daily steps. Color me fitness-band envious! After reading a few head-to-head reviews, I decided to canvas fans on both sides and try one out for myself.
