LG LifeTouch fitness tracking smartwatch works with iOS

LG will this spring offer a new wristband fitness device called the Lifeband Touch, and our colleagues at Android Central got a look at it. As it turns out, the Lifeband Touch won't just work on Android - it'll support iOS as well, according to Apple Insider.

The Lifeband Touch - a smartwatch with Bluetooth support - touts an Organic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) display. The display tells you the time and also shows you alerts and messages. The device incorporates sensors to record movement, and swiping over the display enables you to retrieve information about your workout. That information is transmitted to compatible applications on the iPhone. (Apple Insider reporters that MapMyrun, RunKeeper, MyFitnessPal, and Withings are all supported).

Look for it to be available for around $180.

So many fitness trackers, watches, headbands, smart crock pot, and smart clothes at CES. I'm looking forward to the future and letting all these smart items do the work.
