The Vibe Band VB10
This tracker/smartwatch hybrid is from technology giant Lenovo and is an impressive blend of form and function. It has an E-ink display, which means it can last on a single charge for about a week, even when you run all of its features on a continual basis. It is waterproof and will also be both iOS and Android compatible when it is launched in April, so everyone can use it. There will be several fitness apps you can use with your smartphone along with smartphone capabilities built-in, like Facebook and Twitter notifications. VB10 will be available in the US April 2015.
Mashable agrees that “The Lenovo band might not be the most hyped or daring, but the price is certainly not bad.”
