Default Jawbone UP vs Fitbit Force

I'll be testing these two for the next month. Lots of people have asked me which one is better so it's time to decide for myself. For those of you who already made the decision, I'm curious why you may have picked one or the other.

Automatic syncing is one reason people picked Fitbit over Jawbone, but the UP 24 recently added this feature.

Which would/did you pick: Jawbone or Fitbit?

Settled for the Fitbit Flex. I was already using the MyFitnessPal App and it actually syncs to the FitBit app. I only have to add my food, water, weight in MyFitnessPal and it pushs it to FitBit. It has a better calorie catalog than the FitBit app does plus you can scan the barcodes and it brings up the product and calories.

I do like the syncing which I have set to both of my phones (bluetooth) and my WiFi at home.

OT: Looks like Garmin has released their vivofit fitness band with a 1 yr battery life.

I have the UP24. It syncs with several fitness apps and can sync with Lose It! for food tracking. I like that it tracks my activity and provides feedback on achievement, etc. It was amazing to see that I had walked 50,000 steps.....

How do you figure they'll accomplish that? Sounds scary/dangerous.
