LG Electronics, the Korean consumer electronics giant, announced its bangle-like Lifeband Touch fitness tracker some months back. It’s apparently shipping now, and first reviews are not particularly favorable.
Youkyung Lee, writing for the Associated Press, wore it for a week and found it uncomfortable and limited. The lack of a strap caused the band to move up and down the arm. And the interface was not impressive — monochromatic and hard to read in the sun. The Samsung Gear Fit costs just $50 more and is a far better device, the reviewer found.
