The first wearable activity tracker of the South Korean company can be purchased from Best Buy and is $50 USD cheaper than the competing Samsung Gear Fit.

LG unveiled the Lifeband Touch last week and now the company's first fitness wearable devices have just arrived on the US market. The LG Lifeband Touch is joined by the Heart Rate Monitor earphones and both can be already purchased from Best Buy. According to the official press release, "Both devices can be wirelessly connected to most of today’s popular smartphones to create a full-featured wearable ecosystem."

The LG Lifeband Touch is fully compatible with both Android and iOS. Designed to work with LG's Fitness app, this gadget can also interact with popular apps such as Runkeeper, MapMyFitness or MyFitnessPal. These are its main specs:

  • Display: 0.9-inch OLED with 128X32 pixels
  • Connectivity: Bluetooth 4.0
  • Battery: 90 mAh

While other similar accessories are only available in one size, the LG Lifeband Touch is available in three sizes - XL, L and M - with a band length of 7.72 inches, 7.12 inches and 6.53 inches.

The water resistant bracelet's battery can provide up to 3 days of autonomy, while the Heart Rate Monitor earphones can last up to 4 hours with the heart rate monitoring feature enabled or up to 6 hours while listening to music.

The Lifeband Touch has a price of $149.99 USD and the earphones cost as much as $179.99 USD.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
