LG Lifeband Now Released in Australia

For all the health buff who wants to track their fitness goals on the go, LG Lifeband Touch is finally coming out in Australia. Here’s how much and where you can get it.

The LG Lifeband Touch will cost you $199 in Australia, meaning that the Australia Tax is nowhere to be seen on the new wearable. You can get them from Harvey Norman, Bing Lee, and JB Hi-Fi.

It will come in a variety of sizes from small, medium, large, and extra-large. The release dates vary depending on the size you want. However, you’ll be able to buy medium and large sizes from late may, and the small and the extra-large will be available from July.

The Lifeband touch also has integration with MyFitnessPal and RunKeeper so you can track all your meals, runs, and calories on your wrist too.

The wearable tracks your steps, distance, calories, and heart rate. It’s more of a smartwatch than a straight-up fitness tracker, in that it can sync with your phone through Bluetooth so you can get alerts for calls and texts or change music.

The fitness bracelet is equipped with a three-axis accelerometer and an altimeter, so it can take into account your altitude and other factors that matter, compared to the Nike FuelBand which doesn’t have a altimeter, so the data the LG band gathers might actually be more meaningful.

Additionally, it responds to gesture-based controls, has a lithium polymer battery that holds a charge for five days, and is splash-proof.
