Acer's new Leap wearables are getting closer to release
Computex 2015 is taking place next week, and consumers are hoping that the very tight-lipped Acer reps will announce an official release date.
No price details have been provided yet, but the three new wearable bands from Acer have been confirmed to be arriving soon. All three offer activity and fitness tracking, with the opportunity to put your own twist on them via interchangable bands.
The Liquid Leap was Acer's first attempt at wearable tech, and whilst it wasn't a failure, it still left a lot to be desired. We're hoping that Acer will have taken all the feedback on board and worked hard to meet the demands appropriately.
The Liquid Leap Curve is definitely Acer's attempt at creating a wearable device aimed at the style conscious among us. This will be looking to compete with the more stylish looking wearable bands such as the Jawbone UP3. It will have the most optional bands, but also packs in lots of tech such as a heart rate and stress sensor.
The Liquid Leap Fit carries the same tech as the Curve, but in a build better suited for the adventurous, thanks to its waterproof display and a five day-long battery life. It will come with an interchangeable band with the option of a silver, gold or metallic finish.
The Liquid Leap Active is aimed at more social-minded consumers, thanks to its different features and ultra-lightweight design. It will come with three interchangeable bands, which you can match to your outfit or mood. Although let's be honest - there aren't many outfits that bright yellow or camouflage don't go with. Notifications will warn you of incoming calls from your smartphone as well as new messages and meetings. It can even control the music playback on your phone (if it's compatible) thanks to the remote control function.
Stay tuned and we'll let you know when Acer makes it official.
