Acer ex­pands its smart band lineup

The China Post - - BUSINESS -

Tai­wanese com­puter maker Acer Inc. ( ) has added three new mod­els to its Liq­uid Leap smart band lineup that will be on dis­play at COM­PU­TEX Taipei, the world's sec­ond-big­gest com­puter trade show sched­uled for June 2-6.

The three new mem­bers are the Leap Ac­tive for what Acer de­scribes as "so­cially ac­tive young­minded con­sumers," the Leap Fit for "health- con­scious con­sum- ers," and the Leap Curve with a curved screen for "ur­ban style­seek­ers," Acer said in a press re­lease.

All three mod­els al­low wear­ers to track daily ac­tiv­i­ties and ex­er­cise, and get timely no­ti­fi­ca­tions when pre-set goals are met, which can en­cour­age users to keep mov­ing, ac­cord­ing to Acer.

As high­lighted by the com­pany, the light­weight Leap Ac­tive fea­tures a 1-inch dis­play and comes with three dif­fer­ent- colored bands. The de­vice can also dou­ble as a re­mote con­trol for mu­sic play­back on smartphones.

The wa­ter­proof Leap Curve sports a 1.4-inch curved screen and de­liv­ers the same func­tion­al­ity as the Leap Fit, in­clud­ing a stress sen­sor that sends no­ti­fi­ca­tions when it de­tects high stress lev­els, Acer said. Pric­ing and avail­abil­ity for th­ese smart bands were not dis­closed.

Acer will also launch new Win­dows note­books and desk­top PCs this year at COM­PU­TEX, in­clud­ing the Aspire Switch 11 V 2-in-1 note­book, as well as the 23.8-inch touch-en­abled Aspire Z3-710 and the 19.5-inch Aspire ZC-700 allin-one com­put­ers.

In ad­di­tion, Acer will demon­strate the lat­est de­vel­op­ments of its grow­ing Build Your Own Cloud (BYOC) ecosys­tem and give vis­i­tors the op­por­tu­nity to pre­view new de­vices as part of its abPBX plus com­mu­ni­ca­tion so­lu­tion for en­ter­prises.
