We know that wearables won’t stop coming this week as it is the CES time. While there are many small and big brands has entered the market, the Lenovo has been absent from the market up until now, as the company has unveiled its first wearable, named Vibe band.
Last year it was reported that the company is working on smartband, which passed through the doors of FCC when the images and specification of the device got leaked. Now jumping to this year, the company has finally announced that smartband, which is quite better looking than what we saw in that leaked manual.
The VB10 comes with a curved 1.43-inch E Ink screen of 296 x 128 pixel resolution, as it is much better looking than what we saw on Sony’s offering from four months ago. First reason being the metal body of Lenovo Vibe band, which would be available in black, gold or white color options. The band looks pretty premium for a non-premium pricing of $89, as it is waterproof too.
The strap of the band is rubberized and weighs only 30 grams, which is quite lighter and would be comfortable to wear all the time. While it has an E Ink always-on screen, the band is certain to give battery life of up to seven days on a single charge. That means it can continuously monitor your health activities like calories; steps walked, distance traveled, and the sleep quality. As well as you also get notifications from your phone (iOS, Android) via Bluetooth LE connectivity.
Too bad that this device won’t be up for sale until this April in the US, the global launch date is unknown for now. Still, you might get lucky if an e-retailer launches it soon.
