LG Introduces Lifeband Touch and Heart Rate Earphones
      #46439 - 05/13/14 09:25 AM

LG today introduced its first fitness wearable devices to consumers starting this month. LG Lifeband Touch and Heart Rate Earphones offer practical features and the most accurate data collection and analysis. It'll launch in the U.S. on May 18 with other global markets to follow. Here's more info:



LG Lifeband Touch features a bright, full-touch OLED display that provides easy, real-time access to a full range of fitness data so wearers can track their progress and adjust their workout plans accordingly. Lightweight and simple to use, a unique motion-sensing algorithm automatically turns on the display when wearers rotate their wrists. LG Lifeband Touch features two sensors -- a triple-axis accelerometer and an altimeter -- that work together to provide the most accurate data in real time. What's more, LG Lifeband Touch enables users to check incoming calls and messages and control their music playlists on their smartphones, keeping wearers connected while delivering an uninterrupted workout experience.

LG Lifeband Touch is compatible with both Android and iOS operating systems and is designed to work with the LG Fitness app as well as popular fitness apps such as MyFitnessPal, Runkeeper and MapMyFitness. The long-lasting -90mAh battery is good for five days of use between charges. And unlike other wearable fitness devices that are designed to be "one size fits all," LG Lifeband Touch is available in three different sizes for the most comfortable fit possible.



LG's Heart Rate Earphones are designed to provide accurate heart rate data by measuring blood flow signals in the ear via PerformTek sensor technology while also delivering excellent sound. Because of the unique physiology of the ear, wearers can get more accurate health and fitness metrics with LG's Heart Rate Earphones than with other devices, especially when engaged in physical activity. LG Heart Rate Earphones can be used alone or with LG Lifeband Touch. A separate clip-on medallion contains Bluetooth connectivity which sends data to the Lifeband Touch or a compatible smartphone. When using the LG Fitness App, users can also receive audible status updates informing them of their heart rate and VO2 max (maximal oxygen consumption) levels in real time.
