Acer Liquid Leap+ smartband debuts in the US
Acer unveiled its first fitness tracker, the Liquid Leap+, at MWC 2015 back in March. The smartband has since then been available in various markets around the globe, including Europe and the Middle East. Today, the company announced that Liquid Leap+ will also make its way to the United States.
Acer Liquid Leap+ comes with a 1-inch OLED touchscreen with 128 x 32 pixels resolution and is mainly targeted towards users who care about fitness and health. It also brings some features allowing it to be used for controlling the smartphones it pairs with via Bluetooth. The Liquid Leap+ lets users control the music player and notifications such as messages, incoming calls, emails, alarms and calendar events. It can also display the time and date.
The main functionality, however, is monitoring user’s physical activity. The smartband can count steps, track the running time and distance and monitor burnt calories. It can also be used while swimming thanks to IPX7 certification.
Specs-wide, it is powered by ARM Cortex M0 processor and comes with 16 KB of RAM, 256 KB of flash memory and a Li-Po battery able to last up to 120 hours in run time and up to 240 hours in stand-by time. The device is fully compatible with Android, Windows and iOS.
Acer Liquid Leap+ is now available in the US from major retailers or it can be purchased through Acer’s site for a price of $79.99.
