Fitbit, Jawbone, Apple, Fitbit and many others have been testing new models of the Jawbone UP and UP3 in recent months, with Fitbit launching the first j80-enabled fitness tracker at the end of this month.
But as the j-series is known for, there’s not one specific model of the j8-series yet, but rather a mix of models.
This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, as many fitness bands have a few different versions of the same core features, so the new models will have to be customised for each individual customer’s needs.
However, it does mean that the most popular models of these new fitness bands will likely be in the range of £199 to £299.
It also means that those who want to upgrade to a larger, more powerful model may have to wait a bit longer.

Fitbit said that it would release a statement later today (local time) explaining the reason behind the delay.
The new models are designed for a range of different fitness goals, from fitness enthusiasts looking for a more powerful version of the UP to those who just want a device that works in the same way as their existing ones.
The devices are designed to be easy to use, easy to customize and can be charged via USB.
The device will be available for purchase through the Fitbit UK site at a price of £299, with the option of a free upgrade to the higher priced version for up to two years.
The j8 range of bands will come in four sizes, ranging from the smallest to the largest, and the j9-series will come with three different sizes for the same price.
These range from the $99.99 UP8 to the $149.99 j9+ priced j9+.
Both the $299.99 and $149,999 j8+ models will come loaded with a variety of other features, including Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, and will include support for Jawbone Up and UP.
The £199 j8 will also be compatible with the Jawwatch band.
The $299 j8+, $299, and $199 j9 will be compatible only with Jawband 2, which was recently updated with support for the Jawband 3, Jawband 4, and Jawband 5.
