Jawbone UP platform

Jawbone has just announced an iOS Platform, called UP, which is set for integration with multiple apps -- and soon to have an open API -- with the goal of organizing your adventure sports and athletic data.

Right now, the wearable computing market is relatively wide open, with new platforms vying for real estate in a space that is largely yet undefined -- the players are positioning for what is to come -- and nearly everyone believes the wearable market is indeed coming.
