Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer has reportedly joined the board of gadget-maker Jawbone.

AllThingsD claims that the executive has maintained close ties with the San Francisco-based operation for some time and recently attended one of its board meetings.

Jawbone is best known for its wireless and mobile syncing devices, such as the Jambox wireless speaker and the Jawbone UP fitness bracelet.

Mayer, who is also on the Walmart board, is in the process of transforming Yahoo into a mobile-first business with the potential to challenge the likes of Google.

Yahoo recently rolled out its new range of smartphone apps, including an overhauled Mail application for iOS and Android and visual Weather software for iPhone and iPad.

Jawbone is yet to officially confirm that Mayer has joined its board.
