If you’re still trying to find the right wearable to meet your needs, the LG Lifeband Touch might just be that wearable. The fitness tracker from LG is a lighweight wristband that does just about everything you could want such a wearable to do for you, and you can now grab them from Best Buy for just $149. This would be the first that we’ve heard of the wearable fitness tracker actually going on sale since the announcement of the device by LG in early January. Even better news than the announcement of availability is that Best Buy has both medium and large size bands,(we have no idea why they’re not selling the small as well, perhaps stock issues)so not matter if you have dainty wrists or wrists that look like they’re part of your forearm, Best Buy can accommodate you. Both sizes also cost the same amount, so don’t worry about having to pay more if you need to snag the large size model.

The Lifeband Touch is equipped with the things you’d expect to find here. It has the step tracker(which measures the amount of steps as well as speed and distance), the calorie counter, and it has the ability to log the times of your runs and workouts. Notifications are definitely not absent from the list of things it can do. With the Lifeband Touch on, you won’t have to worry about missing messages or calls as it’ll pop the notifications up on the tiny OLED display. If you’re like me and you listen to music during your workouts, the Lifeband touch can help you manage your tracks with the on screen media controls so you don’t have to pull out your phone just to switch songs.

When it comes to wearables and fitness trackers a lot of them have fairly similar features. The Lifeband Touch is no different here. It supports just about any Android device that is running Android 4.2 Jelly Bean or higher, which is a lot of devices out there. It can last you about 2 to 3 days on one charge so you shouldn’t have to stress about plugging it in every single night. You can order one from the Best buy website, you only get the choice of black though since LG doesn’t make it in any other color. If accessorizing with a favorite color is part of what you’re looking for in a fitness tracker you may want to look elsewhere.
