LG's 'Lifeband Touch' leaked a week before CES

 

A photo of LG's newest consumer product, the 'LG Lifeband Touch', has been leaked a week ahead of the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas by an inside source on Twitter. The user @evleaks posted about the device, which seems to be a wearable fitness tracker, providing only a picture and a name.

The tracker, which seems to be modeled after other activity tracking armbands such as the Nike Fuelband, has a seemingly simple semi-matte black design with a small green circle on top. In what looks to be LG's first fully-fledged consumer fitness device since their prototype armband in early 2013, the Lifeband Touch looks like the company's attempt to enter a thriving market which has long been dominated by other competitors, most of which have been comprised of smartphone peripherals. 

With the new year coming around and many companies expected to make announcements at CES 2014, the Lifeband Touch could just be a taste of what LG has to offer in 2014. With so many great things to look forward to and increased integration between products, even if fitness isn't your thing you can still be excited about the potential it brings.

It looks very simple in design. A GPS and a bluetooth and nothing else inside. Watches are as powerful as this. Of course, it could be more, but with no screen...

this category of wearable tech are all overrated and gimmicky. the technologies are nothing new. it all depends on how good is the marketing.

i doubt it has a gps module. most likely just an accelerometer. maybe coupled with a gyro.

Why are they overrated? I'd love to jog without brining my phone, to go to the gym and have bluetooth headphones connected to this so I don't have to have a cord, to go skiing and have a lock on me in case I fall or get trapped, to have a camera on my glasses so I don't have to stop enjoying the moment, to share my experiences via video wherever in the world I am in, to tap my wrist while driving and speak to someone, or to record anything anywhere.

Yes, most of this can be done with a phone, but the point is trying different things and pushing the limits. Why not try it? Think of the advantages for the elderly and disabled.

Sorry sir, I think you are just ignorant to the benefits and would rather keep what you have and the world stay put. Sad.

speaking of marketing ...

there's a fine line between enjoying life and recording your existence for the sake of it. i guess to each his / her own.

I don't understand how there is a fine line between the two. You don't think of want to share the moment I proposed with my family and children? The birth of my child?

It has nothing to do with marketing if you can apply it to your life. Marketing is there to show you how you can. No one needs this stuff, but why not use it.
