Production issues cause Jawbone UP3 launch delay

Production issues cause for Jawbone Up3 launch delay

If you were excited about the prospect of getting your hands on a shiny new Jawbone UP3 by the end of the year, it looks like you might have to wait a little longer. The company confirmed today that it has decided to push the device's launch back until early next year due to production issues.

The company confirmed the delay in a statement to Mashable:

"Jawbone has revised its shipping dates for UP3 as they continue to fine-tune the production process," a company spokesperson said. "The band will now ship starting early next year."

The $180 wearable was originally slated to bring its bevy of advanced tracking features to the masses late this year, presumably in time for the holiday season, but it looks like Jawbone is going to miss out on that lucrative window.

Disappointing as I wanted to purchase as a Christmas gift for my niece... Might now try and see if I can track down a Fitbit Surge..

My current Jawbone Up24 has failed several times over the past eight months. Only saving grace is their customer service department.

I've had enough and have jumped over to fitbit. My surge should arrive tomorrow.
