LG becomes the latest entrant to the wearable technology craze with the unveiling of its Lifeband Touch at CES 2014. Rivaling the likes of Nike’s FuelBand, the Jawbone UP24, and a few others, the bracelet imaged above is a fitness and health tracker that uses Bluetooth 4.0 technology to connect to its user’s Android or iOS device. Its built-in sensors are able to track your movement and calories burned as well as measure heart rate with special headphones that listen to the blood flow in your ears. Moreover, the Lifeband Touch features an LED color touchscreen that displays time, controls your phone’s music player as well as notifications from your phone. Rumored to retail for $179 USD, LG’s Lifeband Touch is expected to be available sometime during the second quarter of 2014.
