Amazon is still selling defunct Jawbone fitness trackers after removing them from sale in the UK following an investigation by consumer charity Which?.
Jawbone’s supporting app Jawbone UP ceased to function in May, rendering the devices useless. It follows the company going into liquidation last year.
