Jawbone is building a health tracker you can swallow

Jawbone is building a health tracker you can swallow | UX-UI-Wearable-Tech for Enhanced Human | Scoop.it
In the future, consumers will monitor their health by swallowing health sensors.
Olivier Janin's insight:

The concept of embedding a chipset into a pill is not new. Proteus already get an approval from the FDA in 2012 for a system that use pills+patch that communicates with the chipset +iPhone App.


The news is more that Jawbone, a mass-market brand, intends to develop such product.  That means something, like an intrusion in the Pharma walled garden.

But how to reinsure the consumers to make them swallow a pill in their body ?

« Imaginez que tous les objets de notre maison seront « intelligents », ils savent tout ce que vous voulez qu’ils fassent et qu’ils le disent avant de l’avoir souhaité ?

Imaginez votre voiture savoir si vous êtes fatigué ou agité, et peut-être même savoir si vous avez trop bu. Que pensez-vous d’un téléviseur qui peut vous montrer du contenu adapté à votre humeur ?

Imaginez votre coach personnel qui pourrait être au courant de la façon dont vous avez dormi cette nuit, ou vous vous êtes déplacé ou encore savoir ce que vous avez mangé pour vous motiver en direct ? » – Jawbone

Olivier Janin's insight:

Jawbone vision is clear, well described, UX & Business-wise

UP3 by Jawbone

Heart health, advanced sleep and workout recognition. Welcome to the future of you. How far will you go?
Olivier Janin's insight:

The new UP3 from Jawbone is the high-end new iteration of the brand. Key new features include : 


  • refined design
  • Heart-rate sensing through bio-impedance technology (breakthrough on the market)
  • Activity automatic detection (Jawbone filled the gap with Basis on this topic)


Jawbone decidedly not positionned its new products on the SmartWatch race. This could at the end be a good scenario.
