Polaroid at the CES 2017 event announced the launch of a new smartwatch and fitness tracker series. These smartwatches and fitness trackers come in a variety of designs and colors and are ideal for active users who are always on the go.
All these models in the Polaroid line of smartwatches are Bluetooth-enabled, thus it’s easy to connect with either an Apple or Android smartphone. These devices are compatible with the iOS 7.1 and Android 4.3 or above. These models also feature anti-loss technology to ensure users don’t get separated from their smartphones.
These smartwatches are Polaroid SW1507, Polaroid SW1506S, Polaroid SW1505, and SW1502 and there are two fitness trackers – Polaroid B502 and B521.
The first two smartwatches have the 1.22-inch screen with 240x204-pixel resolution and both include the integrated fitness tracker features including heart rate detection, sleep monitoring, and pedometer. They both synchronize with a smartphone for call/answer and SMS message reminder. The other two smartwatches have a 1.54-inch screen with 240x240-pixel resolution and they also have the same synchronization and integration features. Unlike, the first two, the SW1505, and SW1502 feature a sleek, modern form factor.
The SW1502 even has its own built-in camera; this smartwatch can be used as an independent phone with the addition of a SIM card.
Talking about the fitness trackers - Polaroid B502 and B521, they both have the synchronization features as the smartwatches, but they do have some extra capabilities. Main features include heart rate monitor, calorie tracker, sleeping monitor, sedentary reminder, and pedometer. Both the fitness trackers have similar features, they just differ in size, color, and of course the price. The B502 has a 0.82-inch OLED screen while the B521 has a little larger 0.91-inch OLED screen.
The new smartwatch and fitness tracker series launched at the CES 2017 event will be available for purchase in spring 2017 in the US.
