Acer Leap Ware smartwatch coming in July
In addition to the various notebooks and convertibles everyone expected to see, Acer also unveiled a new smart wearable during this week's press event in New York City. Dubbed Leap Ware, this fitness-themed smartwatch is expected to hit the market in July.
Acer Leap Ware comes about two years after the Liquid Leap+ fitness band but aims the smartwatch market. Its stainless steel round frame makes it look like the Pebble Time Round. Its specs and features include a MediaTek MT2523 processor, multiple sensors, a 1.6-inch display with Corning Gorilla Glass SR+ for protection, also being rated IPX7 for protection from water.
This wearable has a battery that can last up to five days on a single charge and can pair up with both Android or iOS handsets via the Acer Liquid Life app. This piece of code can store all the fitness data collected by the smartwatch, but can also be used to set fitness goals.
Acer Leap Ware will come with Navy Blue and Light Brown bands, being expected to retail for $139 USD.
