Today, Acer has announced the next generation of Smart activeband products, the Acer Liquid Leap+. The new wearable now syncs and connects with all main supported operating systems (Windows, Android and iOS via Bluetooth 4.0 low energy) and the 1” OLED touchscreen can be strapped to the wrist-band colour of your current mood.
The Acer Liquid Leap+ Smart Activeband wearable convinces with features aimed at keeping track of all aspects of one’s life in a small 1-inch package. The ultra-slim 1” touch-screen is nestled in a durable exchangeable rubber wristband with a curved surface especially designed to lower body temperature by minimizing skin contact.
The Acer Liquid Leap+ becomes a fitness companion by tracking the user’s steps, running distance and calories burned. The activeband core module is a 24/7 wearable and it has waterproof certification (rated IPX7). Music control functions such as “play”, “pause”, “previous”, and “next song” make it easy to adapt to the tune of your choice, while notifications never let one miss an important email, calendar event or SMS.
Light-weight and stylish, the Liquid Leap+ comes with a variety of colour-bands: Charcoal Black, Fuchsia Pink and Lime Green. The firm claims that the Activeband uses low energy Blutooth 4.0 and has an estimated battery life of 5 to 7 days.
It will be available in Europe for €79 (roughly US $88) starting March 2015.
