Lenovo, hitherto known for their robust range of laptops have jumped into the world of wearable technology with the Smartband SW-B100, a fitness tracker which looks heavily influenced by the Fitbit.
The product page on the Lenovo website is surprisingly devoid of details apart from a bais product description but shows that the tracker walks and talks like all other fitness trackers by clocking steps, distance, calorie intake and Heart Rate but also has some quirky features like ‘Auto-locking/unlocking of PCs without manually entering passwords’ when the tracker is within range.
The smart band is not Android Wear and the tiny screen, reminiscent of the Huawei TalkBand is a monochromatic dot-matrix one where you will only receive notifications of calls and texts from your phone but not be able to view messages in their entirety or receive calls.
As Lenovo point out, the device, available in orange and blue, is aimed at the younger end of the market and hence we expect a very pocket-friendly price to it.
Availability and pricing are not known but we will bring you the details when we know more.
