Acer Liquid Leap+ Waterproof Smartband Announced with 1-inch OLED Touchscreen – Details
This year Acer decided that they want to refresh their wearable line-up and has come up with a new Liquid Leap+, which is the upgrade to the last year’s Liquid Leap Smart Activeband, which barely saw a commercial sale in stores. Today at MWC Conference in Barcelona, company announced its updated wearable band.
With a hope of exciting the users, the device has been made compatible with three of the largest mobile operating system. According to the company, this is their “OS Agnostic” approach to the market.
The naming may say that it might be a little upgrade, but it rather sports a different design, as it has been updated to better fit the curvature of the wrist. Going open-minded, the band has been made user replaceable. Though, there are only a few color bands options available to swap, but there’s always a potential of more colors to come for personalization.
The Liquid Leap+ band would be a platform independent, and as well as supports Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy, which means the band would be able to control everything, that’s a good and bad thing at a time. The 1-inch OLED touchscreen offer fitness tracking numbers, as well as media playback, which means you will only get few notification types delivered to your smartband.
Company focuses on classics like email, calendar, SMS and music controls, as well as it tracks your fitness via tracking steps taken, distance travelled and calories burned. The core is certified with IPX7 rating, meaning you can take it any activities that involve water, without worrying damaging.
The Acer Liquid Leap+ would be made available in Europe for €79 starting in March. The manager app for Leap+ is available in the Google Play Store, App Store and Windows Store.
