New iOS-Compatible Health Tech Goes on Sale This Weekend
Two new iOS-compatible health technologies are launching this coming weekend from one of the top names in tech.
With the stated goal of showing consumers that accuracy and comfort should not have to be sacrificed for good looks, LG Electronics is rolling out its first ever fitness wearable devices to consumers.
"LG Lifeband Touch and Heart Rate Earphones offer practical features and the most accurate data collection and analysis currently available, making it easier for wearers to take control of their health," the company says, explaining that both devices can be wirelessly connected to most of today’s popular smartphones (including the iPhone) to create a "full-featured wearable ecosystem."
LG Lifeband Touch features a full-touch OLED display that provides real-time access to a full range of fitness data so wearers can track their progress and adjust their workout plans accordingly. Additionally, LG Lifeband Touch is designed to work with the LG Fitness app as well as popular fitness apps such as MyFitnessPal, Runkeeper and MapMyFitness.
Finally, LG’s Heart Rate Earphones also launch this Sunday, May 18th. They are designed to provide accurate heart rate data by measuring blood flow signals in the ear via PerformTek sensor technology while also delivering excellent sound.
"Because of the unique physiology of the ear, wearers can get more accurate health and fitness metrics with LG’s Heart Rate Earphones than with other devices, especially when engaged in physical activity," the company says.
