Jawbone UP24 X-Ray Teardown

As we wait for the release of the Apple Watch later this month, in today’s teardown we take a look at the new Jawbone 24UP “lifestyle tracking” wristband. This device is a very interesting example of electronic packaging. All electronics are mounted on a flexible circuit wrapped around a carbon-steel spring. Here’s a photo of the UP24 and its x-ray image.

    Dear Bill,
    Thanks for this post. You are an expert un electronica which brings me to ask you what follows:

    I want to change some hardware of the up24 but I need some help on the compabilities. I need a smaller batterie un size (mm) and if it exists a smaller vibration motor. Do you think it s possible?

    Kindest Regards
    Noé

      Dear Noe, I think that’s possible. Check ifixit.com for parts, you should be able to find smaller parts there. Other places to look at are sparkfun.com and amazon.com. Please send us photos of what you’re working on, sounds very interesting!
