During last year’s Consumer Electronics Show, LG had a device on display called the “Smart Activity Tracker.” It was a wearable piece of technology, though it was only a prototype that never hit the market. Now we know what kind of products that gadget inspired. Apparently LG is ready to reveal two new pieces of wearable tech, including a smartwatch and a fitness tracker.
According to The Korea Herald, LG is already testing two new products that it will sell alongside its new, yet still rumored, G3 flagship smartphone. One is called the G-Arch smartwatch, though little is known about it, and the second is called G-Health.
The watch will very likely sync with LG’s Android smartphones, similar to how the Samsung Galaxy Gear functions with Samsung’s devices, and will probably provide notifications, alerts and more. We imagine the G-Health wristband will function similarly to the Fitbit Force and Jawbone UP; likely using low-power Bluetooth to keep track of exercise routines, sleep and movement throughout the day.
The Korea Herald said LG will unveil its new mobile products, including its G3 smartphone, during the Mobile World Congress tradeshow in February. TechnoBuffalo will be on the ground, so stay tuned for more information as it comes.
