It’s safe to say that the Fitbit is currently King of the Hill when it comes to fitness trackers, but there are other options out there. The Acer Liquid Leap+ is one of them, and it has finally arrived in the US with a very affordable price tag.

There is a wearable for almost everyone these days, and most share some common features. The Acer Liquid Leap+ falls somewhere between a fitness tracker and an actual smartwatch as it will definitely keep tabs on your workout, but does quite a bit more than that.

As with most health trackers, the Acer Liquid Leap+ has a pedometer to keep track of your steps and can keep tabs on your sleep and calories. Its also waterproof thanks to the IPX7 tag, so you don’t have to worry about taking it off for a quick dip. Want to control your tunes while you run or stay notified of texts or calls? That’s not a problem as it can handle several tasks when synced to your handset.

The Acer Liquid Leap+ may look like a simple wearable, but there’s plenty packed within its small frame. It features a .94” touchscreen display (single touch) with a resolution of 128 x 32 with a 2-bit ARM Cortex M0 chip, 16KB of RAM and 256kb of flash storage. It will connect with Bluetooth 4.0 LE and is powered by a Lithium Polymer battery that will provide around 120 hours of usage or 240 hours of standby time.

The fitness band will normally set you back $99 with a charger and interchangeable Black, Green and Pink bands, but Acer is running a special that will drop the price to $79. It will work with Android, iOS and Windows handsets as well which is a bit of a rarity in the world of wearables.
