The LG Lifeband Touch marks the brand's entry into the wearable tech arena, currently occupied by the likes of the Samsung Galaxy Gear, Sony Smartwatch 2 and Google Glass.
LG Lifeband Touch: Size and build
The Lifeband Touch sports an asymmetric design, with the flexible rubber finish meaning that it can be slipped off and on easily as there's no clasp. As the size isn't adjustable, we found that the Lifeband felt a little loose around our wrist. And the uneven weighting meant that it slipped round our wrist a bit. Article continues after the video.
LG Lifeband Touch: Features
The built-in 3-axis accelerometer and altimeter enables the gadget to monitor your daily activity including the number of steps you've taken, distance, speed, calories scoffed as well as projected pace.
LG Lifeband Touch: Display
The touch OLED panel is neat and clear and swiping across the screen to toggle through functions was a slick experience. It also gives it an advange over devices like the Fitbit Flex which require you to look at your phone to check your data as it has no integrated display.
LG Lifeband Touch: Verdict
While the LG Lifeband isn't the best looking fitness tracker we've seen, the fact that it can be used with LG's heart rate monitoring earphones certainly puts it at an advantage. We also like the fact you can view existing apps through LG's fitness app.
