Pros
Data, wearability
Cons
Doesn't sync wirelessly, limited sizes
• • •

Overall, I thought the UP was pretty cool. The app itself is beautiful, and the sleep tracking is great. I know the other reviewers thought the food tracking was a pain, but I synced mine up with MyFitnessPal, which is a food tracking resource (app and site) that I love.

I worried about losing the little cap, and wasn't a fan that I couldn't see my progress without plugging it in (I also own the Fitbit One, which syncs wirelessly and you can tap a single button to see on the tracker where you're at with your steps).

I wrote a blog post about my comparison between the two, so check it out if you're interested! http://www.skinnyfatlife.com/seven-facts-about-me-and-the-jawbone-up

Great product, if I leave home without it, I'm heading back to get. Really great to know more about me from a sleep asked movement standpoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
