- LG Lifeband Touch(1)
Sydney, 6 May, 2014 — Being active is set to get a whole lot easier for Australians after LG Electronics Australia (LG) today made an announcement during its 2014 Home Entertainment range launch that the highly-anticipated Lifeband Touch, a smart activity tracker that puts you back in control of your fitness, will be available in local stores from late May, 2014.
Whether you’re stuck in the office, at home with the kids or out for an autumn run, the Lifeband Touch fits comfortably on your wrist and monitors your every move, tracking activity throughout the day so that you know if you need to do more. Burn calories while doing household chores, swap the lift for the stairs or skip the bus and walk – the world really is your workout.
Beneath a stylish asymmetric and flexible design, the Lifeband Touch features a built-in 3-axis accelerometer and altimeter that accurately measures distance, speed, number of steps, calories burned and projected pace. Along with time, activity and music controls, information is available at the swipe of a finger via a crisp touchscreen OLED display that automatically turns on when you rotate your wrist. And there’s no need to miss a call or text while on the move, with alerts synchronised from compatible smartphones*.
The Lifeband Touch is compatible with both Android and iOS smartphones**, transmitting data via Bluetooth to the intuitive, easy-to-use LG Fitness App, where you can set your own daily goals and track your progress. It also fits into your existing routine by linking up with popular third-party apps such as MyFitnessPal, Runkeeper or MapMyFitness.
“The Lifeband Touch is designed with the pace and demands of modern life in mind.” said Lambro Skropidis, General Manager Marketing at LG Australia. “Offering exceptional comfort, functionality and compatibility, it’s perfect for busy professionals and parents who want to be more active but struggle to find the time. Given that it’s our first wearable tech product, we’re really excited to be able to share it with Australian consumers.”
