The LG Smart Activity Tracker prototype bracelet was unveiled at CES 2013 in Las Vegas last week. In this video, we take a quick first look at the new smart wristband that tracks and records your daily and athletic activities. This includes tracking of walking, jogging, running, distance traveled, calories burned and so on. Users can set goals, share with friends, earn badges and more, too. The Smart Activity Tracker can sync with your Android smarpthones or the iPhone, allowing users to receive call/text notifications and even control music. Plus, it can connect directly with an LG Smart TV when you want to play fitness apps on a rainy day. Unfortunately, LG has not set a concrete release date for the Smart Activity Tracker, though availability is set for summer 2013 at an undisclosed price-point. LG will need to compete with the likes of the Nike+ FuelBand, Jawbone Up and Fitbit Flex when it finally launches its entry into the fitness space.
