Jawbone, maker of wireless headsets and wristbands, is pushing a new food-tracking service it hopes will catch on with health-conscious weight-watchers. Company spokesman Andrew Rosenthal says Jawbone Up users can now log food, water and assess the healthiness of foods. The app also offers a list of restaurant menus and a food library, making it easier for people to check calorie counts before placing an order. The wristband also tracks metrics like steps taken and hours slept. Jawbone competes with rivals like Fitbit, which according to research firm Canalys, accounted for nearly half of the world's 2.7 million wearable band shipments in the first quarter of 2014. less
