HTC Re Grip vs LG Lifeband Touch
Desire can be measured. Its units are time, distance and speed. And the more desire you put in, the more your training gives back. Track every minute, mile and rep.
The LG Lifeband Touch is the company’s first take on a health-tracking wearable that works with both Android and iOS devices. Available in three sizes, the Lifeband Touch has a touchscreen display and a pair of sensors: an altimeter and a three-axis gyroscope. These can measure movement as well as air pressure, so they’re useful for tracking stairs climbed, for example. Because the device has just a few sensors and uses a power-efficient OLED screen, LG says the Lifeband Touch can run for 5 days between charges.
Latest news about HTC Re Grip and LG Lifeband Touch:
04.03.15. HTC targets fitness fanatics with its first wearable, the HTC Re Grip. HTC is getting into fitness wearables, with a fitness band, drawing on a strategic partnership it announced earlier this year with fitness gear maker Under Armour — who will be supplying the tracking software that the band hooks into. HTC’s first wearable, Grip wrist band is being positioned as a ruggedized, water resistant wearable for athletes and sports oriented folk, rather than as a general step tracker to motivate people who don’t move very much (although it does do step tracking). Different types of activity will be trackable, from walking to cycling to gym sessions. The Grip has a pedometer and GPS, the latter being relatively rare for fitness wristbands — although Microsoft’s fitness band includes GPS, as do more fully featured sports watches — along with Bluetooth Low Energy so it can hook into additional fitness devices, such as a heart rate monitor, for more granular tracking.
