As we have stated many times before, this year’s CES is all about the wearables. Just to add to that, here are some new wearable tech pieces to throw into the mix of what’s already been announced so far. A company called YiFang Digital has announced a few pieces of wearable technology that they will begin to offer this year as part of what they are calling their NextONE line of products. Currently there are four products they plan to release and offer that are considered wearable technology, but only two of them compete with the rest of the wearable tech that we’ve seen. The first is a Smartwatch(surprise, surprise) simply titled the NextONE smartwatch, and it’s running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. It has Bluetooth 4.0 with low-energy consumption, so that’s how it will be able to communicate with your smartphone. It sports a 1.55 inch display with a resolution of 240×240 pixles, so while there’s not much room here for customization like were used to with Android, that is to be expected because it’s a tiny watch face, it is also similar in size to most of the comparable products already out there or that are in the works. It houses a 290mAh battery inside, which should give you up to 2 days of battery life before you need to give it a charge. When you compare it to some of the competition there are definitely some more flashy offerings, like the Galaxy Gear or the Pebble Steel, but who can argue with a $99 pricetag?
The second device is going to be a wristband Pedometer titled the NextONE Pedometer, and it will be a must have device for those of you that are health nuts, and are looking for a cheaper option in the way of tracking your steps and distance walked or ran. The NextONE Pedometer will track your distance walked or distance ran, as well as track how many calories you’ve burned during your activity. It also tracks the intensity of the activity that you’re doing, as well as lets you synchronize your data and share it to social networks. The NextONE Pedometer also uses Buetooth 4.0 or BLE(Bluetooth Low Energy) and will be priced at $39.99. Both the NextONE Smartwatch and the NextONE Pedometer will be available sometime in Q1 says YiFang Digital, so we should see these launch sometime next month or in March perhaps. Let us know what you think about the NextONE line of wearable devices in the comments.
