LG first revealed the Smart Activity Tracker at CES 2013, a wristband that was capable of displaying a phone’s notifications, control music on a compatible Android or iOS device, and track a user’s movements and heart rate. A launch was expected to take place sometime in the summer of 2013, but that didn’t happen, and now it looks like the Smart Activity Tracker might have evolved into the Lifeband Touch according to @evleaks.
The Lifeband Touch looks like something between the Nike FuelBand and the Fitbit Force, though details on its features and functionality remain unknown. A touch display can be seen on its front and a health monitoring system will likely be one of its main functions. An official announcement could be made at CES in the second week of January. It is interesting to see whether the Lifeband Touch will be LG’s entry into the wearable devices market, or will it be just another failed attempt as the Smart Activity Tracker.
