French gadget manufacturer Archos - which proclaims itself as a pioneer in Android devices - today announced that it would showcase a series of new "connected objects" at CES 2014 in Las Vegas.

The new products include a Smart Home Tablet (which is a pretty basic 7-inch slate with a 1024 x 600 pixels display, Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, access to Google Play, dual-core 1.2GHz processor, 512MB of RAM and 8GB of expandable internal memory), a home camera, a weather station, an activity tracker, a blood pressure monitor, and a variety of affordable smartwatches. Some of the Archos smartwatches will cost less than $50, offering functionality and simplicity while featuring a “pebble-like design.”

According to Archos, its upcoming connected objects - including the cheap smartwatches - are using Bluetooth Low Energy, being compatible with Android and iOS devices. A new Connected Self App “will serve as the backbone application for all connected self devices.”
