It looks like Jawbone is preparing to open its UP software to third parties, specifically, to other hardware manufacturers. This means that Jawbone would be able to collect data into its app from rivals like FitBit, as well as smartwatches running Android Wear, and Apple's long-rumored iWatch, according to Re/code:
Hardware manufacturers will be able to make new products that communicate directly with the UP platform through an open protocol, without the need for an additional app.
