Acer sells out of 70,000 Smart Bracelets on HSN in one-day



The smart bracelet known as the Acer Liquid Leap recently sold out of 70,000 units in one day, after being featured on HSN in the U.S. On December 13th, HSN offered viewers two Liquid Leap smart bracelets that are normally priced at $339.92, for a special price of $99.95.  Or, the buyer could decide to take one Liquid Leap smart bracelet with three interchangeable bands, for the same price.

The Acer Liquid Leap tracks the number of steps you take, the distance you travel, and the amount of calories burned. It also monitors your sleeping habits. Fitness goals can be set, with notifications sent out when they are met. Just 17mm thin, the wearable comes with a textured band. The battery can last as long as one week between charges.

The smart bracelet is IPX7 certified, which means that it can be submerged in up to three feet of water for as long as 30-minutes, and still emerge unscathed. The 2.4cm screen (.9-inches) has a 128 x 32 resolution. When paired with your smartwatch, you can see incoming calls and message alerts on your bracelet's screen.

Not only did the device sell out on HSN, it also is sold out on Amazon. You can buy it directly from Acer for the equivalent of $82 USD by clicking on the sourcelink.

Or you could buy the awesome Mi Band Pulse for $22. It does all of the same things and has a heart rate sensor.

HA! Well, that makes perfect sense considering most American are overweight couch potatoes and eat Mcdonald's or KFC's junk food on a daily basis and spend most of their time yapping on their smartphones... I'm willing to bet that most of these 70,000 buyers will get tired of dieting & keeping a tab on their calories in less than a week, and those fancy bracelets will gather dust in their drawers! What a waste, eh? G'Day!
