During their event in New York today, Acer announced the release of a new smart fitness watch that they have named the Acer Leap Ware.
This new wristwatch comes packed with a range of fitness tracking features via a range of integrated sensors, while featuring a design that is similar to a standard wristwatch.
It features a circular 1.6-inch touchscreen display that is covered by Corning’s Gorilla Glass SR+ technology, which works alongside the IPX7 water-resistant body to ensure that this watch works great in any fitness situation.
It also features a MediaTek MT2523 chipset and MT2511 bio-sensing chip inside along with sensors for measuring heart rate, stamina, stress/ fatigue levels, and even exposure to UV rays.
And all with a battery that will last three-five days according to Acer.
Of course, if you go a little further than general use, it probably won’t last that long and there is a lot more you can do with the watch.
It will also come with some basic smartwatch functions, allowing you to read texts and answer calls right to watch if you link it to an iOS or Android device via Acer’s companion application, Liquid Life.
Once linked, you will also be able to set daily fitness goals and get notifications from the app as you use the watch.
The Acer Leap Ware smartwatch will be available from the third quarter of this year for €139.
We haven’t heard about UK pricing just yet.
