Acer’s got a fitness tracker. Again.
A sudden leap in fitness smartwatches, mostly fueled by Google’s reboot of its Android Wear smartwatch software, has led to a spring surge in wearables. Enter Acer Leap Ware, the newest watch in the race for your wrist.
Acer has been in wearables before, namely fitness bands. Leap Ware, however, is a full-fledged smartwatch. It looks like Android Wear but seems to be running its own OS.
Leap Ware, like most Android Wear watches, has a fully round display. It has what Acer calls “one-touch heart rate.” And its display is protected by Gorilla Glass SR+. Acer also promises easy connection with friends, but details were vague.
The only problem is, Leap Ware joins the LG Watch Sport and Style, Huawei Watch 2, ZTE Quartz and the Misfit Vapor. Not to mention the fact that there are bound to be even more increasingly similar Android Wear-compatible smartwatches coming this year. More to come.
