Nobody is surprised anymore now when a company launches a wearable device. It is the hot trend in the market these days and most people actually expect their favorite technology companies to either come out with a fitness tracker for a smartwatch. Lenovo, the Chinese computer juggernaut, today unveiled its first fitness tracker rather quietly, and has not yet confirmed whether it will be sold outside of its home turf, the People’s Republic of China.
The fitness tracker is called Lenovo Smartband SW-B100 and it was unveiled through a product page that went live on the company’s website. Lenovo has not yet made an official announcement regarding this product. On the page it says that this wearable device is geared towards “young people who take care of their personal health and are interested in new tech trend products.”
Its feature set is very similar to other products of the same kind, these include the ability to count steps, calories burned, distance traveled, heart rate and even sleep habits. It can even show notifications like phone calls and text messages, even though it is not a full fledged smartwatch powered by a platform like Android Wear.
Lenovo has not said anything as yet about price and availability so we’re waiting for official word on that.
