At CES 2014, LG announced a new type of wearable technology called Lifeband Touch. The device is described as an advanced, state-of-art fitness, health, and communication tracker that uses Bluetooth to connect to the user’s Android or iOS device. Thanks to a number of built-in sensors, the device is able to track your movement and calories burned, as well as measure heart rate with special heart rate headphones that “listen” to blood flow in your ears.
The Lifeband Touch doubles as a smartwatch, too. It features a LED color touchscreen that displays time and notifications from your phone. The device can also control media playback and manage calls or messages. Pricing and availability of the Lifeband Touch have not yet been announced, stay tuned for more information.
