While the LG Lifeband Touch was already announced earlier today, the device with another accessory was formally introduced at the company’s CES 2014 press conference.
LG has introduced the Lifeband Touch wrist band and the Heart Rate Earphones. Both the device connect with each other wirelessly and also support Android and iOS smartphones running wellness apps like LG Fitness, MyFitnessPal, Runkeeper and MapMyFitness. Both the can apparently be used in everyday situations instead of just fitness accessories.
The LG Lifeband Touch is a thin wristband which has more functions than the usual smart watch. The band has a touch OLED display that shows the time, smartphone notifications, music controls and even biometric data. The band has in-built accelerometer and altimeter to measure distance, speed, number of steps taken, calories consumed.
The LG Heart Rate Earphones use the PerformTek sensor technology to measure the blood flow into the external part of your ear. Using this data, the earphones can analyse your heart rate and maximal oxygen consumption. The ear pieces design is made flexible to make the buds comfortable. Both the products are expected to be released in the first half of 2014.
