According to the rumors, LG could be looking to launch new wearable products come 2014. One of them is allegedly a smartwatch but while LG has not confirmed such a device, they did state that wearable tech products were in the works. Apart from the rumored smartwatch, another rumored LG wearable tech product is said to be a fitness band of sorts, similar to that of the Nike FuelBand SE, Fitibt, or Jawbone Up, and thanks to a newly leaked photo by @evleaks, we could be getting our very first look at the upcoming LG fitness band which is allegedly known as the the LG Lifeband Touch. Based on what we can see, LG’s offering is looking similar to the FuelBand SE and looks to have some kind of display on the surface, either that or it’s just a really glossy material.
The features remain unknown but presumably it will offer the same features found on other fitness bands, such as step counting, distance run, calories burnt, and maybe even a heart rate monitor. It is also unclear as to whether this device will be a standalone device or if it will be like the Samsung Galaxy Gear which at the moment is only compatible with a handful of Samsung’s smartphones, somewhat limiting its use. In any case hopefully more will be known at CES 2014 which is taking place very soon, so do check back with us then for the details.
