Lenovo has unveiled its own fitness tracker

Nobody is surprised anymore now when a company launches a wearable device. It is the hot trend in the market these days and most people actually expect their favorite technology companies to either come out with a fitness tracker for a smartwatch. Lenovo, the Chinese computer juggernaut, today unveiled its first fitness tracker rather quietly, and has not yet confirmed whether it will be sold outside of its home turf, the People’s Republic of China.

Everyone wants a piece of the fitness tracker pie. Lenovo has quietly revealed its entry into the market, a Fitbit Flex-like device called the “Lenovo Smartband SW-B100.” It appears that the product has accidentally hit the web — there’s no official announcement from the company. Instead, a small product page has just popped up on the Chinese computer giant’s website. The page is somewhat transparent about the company’s goals for the device: “the Lenovo Smartband is for young people who take care of their personal health and are interested in new tech trend products.” From the product listing, the Lenovo Smartband offers a similar set of features as other fitness wearables. It will track your steps, distance traveled, calories burned, and heart rate. It can also keep tabs on your sleep habits.
