Acer in Mobile World Congress 2015 (MWC) made an appearance and have announced the Liquid Leap+ fitness tracker to replace the original Liquid Leap. The Liquid Leap+ is also to complement the company’s latest Liquid Z series of smartphones. The Liquid Leap+ is a fitness tracker and so it does come with whatever you can expect from a fitness tracking device.
It detects your sleep patterns, amount of steps you’ve taken in the day, and other activities as well. It has got a 1-inch OLED touchscreen with a resolution of 128 x 32 pixels which also allows you to control music and act as a notification panel for your connected smartphone. It connects with your smartphone via Bluetooth 4.0 and is quoted to have a battery life of 5 to 7 days. It is touted also to have IPX7 water resistance. For those of you who are clueless as to what that means, it means that you can drop this device into up to 1 meter of water and it will still be working. The best part about this new Leap+ is that it will work with Leap Manager which now works on Android, iOS and Windows Phone so it is fine if you do not have an Acer smartphone. It is the move that makes sense anyway for Acer if they want this to sell.
There are not mentions yet on when this device will arrive in the local shores. It will be available in Europe, Middle East and Africa though this month onwards at a price of €79.00 (MYR308.00) though. It may not be as cheap as the MiBand already available through official channels in Malaysia but considering what it is offering though, it might be worth the buy.
