There are dozens of apps compatible with the Jawbone that are designed to help a user keep on track with their health and wellness goals beyond the gym or kitchen table. An example of this is that the Jawbone UP can now be paired with Automatic, a driver-assisting device. In addition to being able to monitor running and walking activity, those who wear this wristband will also be able to check in on driving statistics too. Using Automatic with the Jawbone UP gives drivers insights into how much time they spend in the car, as well as how they can reduce instances of road rage by paying attention to mood and diet.

While this technology only exists in the form of a wearable accessory for now, drivers can expect that this kind of biometric technology will become integral to cars and personal health in the years to come.
