Archos announced Monday that it will have several new wearable health devices on display during this year’s Consumer Electronics Show, which kicks off early next week. The company will also have some new smartwatches on display.

Archos said that, next week, it will unveil a “Connected Self App” that allows connected devices to show activity levels over time for up to eight users. Products that will take advantage of that app include the Archos Connected Scale, Activity Tracker and a Blood Pressure Monitor. ┬áThe connected scale can keep track of body shape, mass, weight and height for up to four different users. The Activity Tracker is a small band that syncs with a smartphone, like a Jawbone Up or Fitbit Force, and keeps track of fitness levels for up to seven days. The Blood Pressure Monitor can display heart beat information and up to 40 other different measurements throughout the day. Archos didn’t say how much any of these devices will cost.

Meanwhile, the company says it will also introduce new smartwatches during CES, but didn’t provide any information on the devices other than that some models will start under $50. At that price, we’re not expecting anything very advanced, but it may help garner interest among people who don’t want to spend hundreds of dollars on a smartwatch.
