The Recombu Awards doesn’t just honour the very best phones and tablets of the year, it also looks at the things we stick in and connect to our mobile tech. Here’s our favourite mobile accessory of 2014…
Best Mobile Phone Accessory of 2014 winner: Jawbone UP 24
Wearables have blown up in 2014, with even vacuous celebrities throwing out their own smartwatches and fitness trackers, so the winner had to really stand out from the crowd with excellent usability as well as desirability.
Jawbone’s UP 24 is, for us, the best wearable device we’ve played with in 2014. The range of bright colours will appeal to almost any age, while the looped design is unique and makes it both comfortable and easy to slip on and off. You can monitor your general daily activity as well as sleep and the companion app is a thing of beauty, easy to understand with a bright and attractive presentation.
And if you’re a foodie, who wants to watch what you eat, then great news – the Jawbone UP 24 can track what you shove down your gullet, just by scanning food barcodes or entering into the app.
Check out our full fitness tracker round-up to see how the Jawbone UP 24 stacks up against its rival wearables.
