Not a Competitor for the Pebble Smartwatch: Lenovo VIBE Band

Admitted for a verdict on the first night of Lenovo in the ring thrown equipment VIBE band it’s still somewhat early. On the Microsoft Band inspired Smartwatch makes however first the impression as it would compete with the existing market. But for 89 dollars, Lenovo is not much on the game also.

Yet it seems somehow like us, when Lenovo would offer at least something – the CES by 2015 is anyway full of Smartwatches. The VIBE band can not much, only the bare essentials. This includes, for example, displaying messages, SMS or emails. Also Facebook, Twitter and WeChat is supported, but all are limited to only 150 characters. A whole Tweet with name and date? Error display. In the truest sense of the word.

Also fitness functions can be selected on the power-saving E-Ink display. Also here any more than you can expect: Steps, calories, distance and sleep. The 30 g light unit of Lenovo to convince but with a battery life of 7 days. We are looking forward, as it arrives for iOS and Android. The release is scheduled for April.
