Lenovo unveiled its first official wearable over the weekend, when it quietly released the new device through its online store. The Lenovo Smartband SW-B100 looks like a pretty standard fitness tracker and TechnoBuffalo has confirmed that it will only be available in China.

Lenovo’s Smartband will work with Android and iOS devices and comes in either orange or blue when it launches. It offers the usual fitness features including the ability to track your steps, distance traveled, calories, heart rate and sleep patterns. It also shows notifications for incoming text messages, calls, calendar appointments and reminders to exercise. Finally, the Smartband will automatically unlock your PC when it’s nearby, letting you skip the lockscreen entirely.

The Smartband won’t be widely available and the product page on its U.S. site will be removed, since the device is only going to launch in China, a company spokesperson explained to TechnoBuffalo.
