Lenovo's foray into the world of wearable devices is set to commence with the Smartband SW-B100, which is now listed on the manufacturer's official website. The fitness tracker was seen making its way to the FCC earlier the month, which revealed a rectangular display.

The product page for the Smartband SW-B100 shows that Lenovo is targeting a younger audience with its first fitness tracker, which will come with the following features:

  • Exercise Tracking: Steps/Distance/Calories/Heart rate, and daily/weekly/monthly data graph in APP
  • Sleeping Tracking, and daily/weekly/monthly data graph in APP
  • Smart Device Interaction: call/SMS alert reminder with number or name
  • Alert Reminder: smart clock, appointment alerts/exercise reminders
  • SNS sharing: sharing of track information to main SNS

In addition to tracking your vitals and showing notifications, the Smartband SW-B100 will be able to automatically log in to a connected PC without entering a password. Xiaomi's affordable Mi Band offers a similar feature, although that particular wearable device unlocks your device when it is in close proximity.

Judging by the image of the device on Lenovo's page as well as earlier rumors, it looks like the Smartband SW-B100 will eschew Android Wear for a more basic operating system, similar to what Samsung has done with the RTOS-based Gear Fit. From what is listed on Lenovo's site, it looks like the SW-B100 will be available in blue and grey color variations, and will sync with Android devices running Android 4.3 and later, as well as iPhones and iPads running iOS 7.1 and above.

What is your take on Lenovo's upcoming Smartband SW-B100? How much do you think the fitness tracker will cost?
