LG is ready to step into the wearables market big time with the Lifeband Touch. The wearable health device will go on sale in North America this weekend. The Lifeband Touch has a small 0.9-inch OLED screen and real-time access to all sorts of fitness data.
LG designed the Lifeband Touch to offer the user access to data so they can track a workout and adjust their workout plans accordingly. Power for the device comes from a 90mAh internal battery. LG claims that the battery is good for up to five days of use per charge.
LG's wearable can connect to devices running Android and iOS with interaction with the LG Fitness app, MyFitnessPal, Runkeeper, and MapMyFitness. The device will also have clip on heart rate earphones that can measure blood flow through the ears. Three band sizes will be offered and it will launch in the UK, Spain, Italy, and Australia after the North American launch.
