John and Georgia talked fitness devices with Jim Clayton and Ashley Kim of LG. They’ve got two new fitness wearable products; the Lifeband Touch, which swipes nicely through a variety of data displayed right on the band itself, and syncs with the LG fitness app. One nice touch that I haven’t seen in similar fitness products is that it has phone control built in so you can control the music right from the band. It works with both Android and iPhone. The band is flexible, so it’s very easy to take on and off, and has a five-day battery life.
They’ve also got Heartrate Earphones, which is a bluetooth headset and a heart rate monitor at once. It works through the same app as the Lifeband, and the two do work together if you use them; the Lifeband will display your heartrate periodically while you’re working out.
Pricing is not yet available for either product, but both should be available in the spring.
