Lenovo SW-B100 Smartband hits the FCC
Lenovo SW-B100 Smartband has been spotted a while ago clearing the Bluetooth SIG tests and was expected to show up at IFA 2014. This wearable did not make it to the Berlin consumer electronics show last month, but it has just been spotted on the FCC website. This means the Lenovo Smartband may hit the US market soon, although pricing and availability are still unknown.
While most product entries on the FCC website are not rich in details and do not contain any device images, this time things are different. The Lenovo Smartband is shown in a few external and internal shots, next to its apparently incomplete user manual. This device does not appear to be powered by Android Wear, but it has a few interesting highlights:
- battery life up to seven days
- Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity
- IP67 certification for protection from dust and water
- tracks steps, heart rate, calories burned and sleep patterns
- vibration/text alerts for incoming phone calls
- Android 4.3+ and iOS 7+ compatibility, app also available for the Windows platform
Considering the generous battery life, it is safe to assume that Lenovo SW-B100 has a black and white e-paper display. Unfortunately Lenovo still has to make this device official, so we will get back to it as soon as that happens.
