As you already know, the wearable scene has taken off and Lenovo wants in. During CES they unveiled their fitness band – the Vibe Band VB10.
Hands on with the VIBE Band VB10:
On first look… it kind of looks like a toy. It’s very light, has a simple display and has several functions all controlled by the buttons on the side. It will allow you to see up to 150 characters of your notification on screen and you can toggle between screens very easily. The battery also lasts up to a year. This is not the most attractive color combination but it also comes in other combinations. How will it compete in the fitness band arena? We shall see.
Take a look at some more details from the press release below:
