Lenovo’s Smartband doesn’t just track your fitness, it unlocks your computer

Details unveiled for Lenovo Smartband fitness tracker.

Lenovo, hitherto known for their robust range of laptops have jumped into the world of wearable technology with the Smartband SW-B100, a fitness tracker which looks heavily influenced by the Fitbit.

Information has leaked about Lenovo’s first-ever fitness tracker device, but from looking at pictures and specs, the device will not exactly be bringing a lot of new features to the table.As working conditions changed dramatically in the last decades, technology has been blamed for having one deeply negative impact on the health of individuals, although the advantages dominate. The product page on the Lenovo website is surprisingly devoid of details apart from a bais product description but shows that the tracker walks and talks like all other fitness trackers by clocking steps, distance, calorie intake and Heart Rate but also has some quirky features like ‘Auto-locking/unlocking of PCs without manually entering passwords’ when the tracker is within range. According to a brief report on The Verge, Lenovo has not yet made any sort of public announcement about the tracker, supposedly called the Lenovo Smartband. The problem is that while physical effort is increasingly being replaced by intellectual work, diet and fitness turned into core issues indicating health status.

The smart band is not Android Wear and the tiny screen, reminiscent of the Huawei TalkBand is a monochromatic dot-matrix one where you will only receive notifications of calls and texts from your phone but not be able to view messages in their entirety or receive calls. To those complaining that office work forbids them from taking adequate care of their health, tech companies offer a new solution, health-related wearables. As Lenovo point out, the device, available in orange and blue, is aimed at the younger end of the market and hence we expect a very pocket-friendly price to it.

The Verge wondered, based on Lenovo’s business patterns in recent years, whether or not the tracker would ever even be commercially available in North America. Since Lenovo is a Chinese company, it is always difficult to say which of the company’s products will make their way to the United States, and which will not.
