For the Smartband, Lenovo has apparently decided to pass on Android Wear this time around, and target the young and active demographic that wants to track personal health, customize notifications, and automatically log data to a computer without having to log-in.
The SW-B100 will gather data on steps/distance, calories burned, heart rate, and feed an app which will allow users to graph data over daily, weekly, or monthly periods. The Smartband will also track sleep patterns. Unlike the FitBit or Xiaomi’s Mi Band though, Lenovo’s Smartband also serves as a timepiece, and will integrate with your Android or iOS device to provide call and SMS alerts, along with social network sharing.
Similar to Xiaomi’s Mi Band, which can be set-up to unlock your Xiaomi smartphone, the Smartband can be configured to auto-lock and unlock your computer without having to manually enter a password. There is no indication as to when you will be able to order this device or how much it will cost. For the fashion conscious, it will be available in a dark gray body with a blue or orange trim.
