Lenovo SW-B100 Smartband Fitness Tracker Shows Up at the FCC

Posted by at 12:07 pm on October 27, 2014

Lenovo has quietly launched its first fitness tracker for iOS and Android devices, one which leaked earlier this month via an FCC filing. The SW-B100 Smartband is said on the Lenovo website to possess the usual traits of a fitness tracker, though it will also apparently allow the wearer to automatically unlock and log into a PC without needing to manually type in a password.

In terms of fitness tracking, the Smartband can apparently track steps, distances, calories used, and the heart rate of the wearer, reports Windows Central, with data transferred to a companion mobile app, with sleep tracking functions also provided. An LED display at the top offers the time and some statistics about the day’s activities, though it will also offer appointment alerts, exercise reminders, and notify the wearer to incoming calls and texts, displaying the name or phone number of the caller or sender. The product page does not go into detail for how the automatic PC unlocking will function, but it is likely it will work by proximity, establishing a wireless signal between the Smartband and the host device.

It is unclear if or when Lenovo will bring the Smartband SW-B100 to the United States, but given it has an English-language product description, it is likely to do so at some point, possibly in time for holiday shopping.
