If you’ve been eagerly waiting for Jawbone to bring its first wireless fitness tracker to your locale, today could be your lucky day. After a period of exclusivity in the US, the accessory maker has expanded sales of its Up24 wristband to 29 new markets (including the UK, China and Japan) letting customers enjoy low-energy Bluetooth support that Fitbit and others have been offering for more than a year. The launch is timely, given that Jawbone recently updated its Android app with wireless syncing and push notifications to get the most out of the rubberized wearable. As with all its products, Jawbone’s making the Up24 available to buy on its local webstore, but the company is also enlisting the help of Apple and Amazon to manage sales. Prices start at £125 in the UK and €149.95 in Europe, but do make sure to check out the full list of confirmed markets after the break.

Available markets include: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, China, Taiwan, Thailand, Japan, Australia.
