California-based 3Plus, a developer and manufacturer of smart wearable devices, introduced four connected products at this week’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. From basic activity trackers to advanced smartwatches, the wearables not only track and record daily activity and sleep, they also use Bluetooth 4.0 to provide smartphone notifications such as calls, emails and text messages.
They are compatible with both iOS and Android platforms and have corresponding mobile apps.
"Today, a wristwatch is more than just a means to know what time it is and the day's date," said Jerry Galya, 3Plus vice president of sales. "Digital technology has taken wristwatches in a whole new direction and 3Plus is right at the forefront with many innovative technologies. Our newest wearables are available at a variety of affordable price points depending on what features you are interested in. From the most basic smartphone notifications and fitness tracking, to advanced heart rate monitoring and call answering, 3Plus offers it all."
The 3Plus Lite connected fitness wearable tracks steps taken, calories burned, distance travelled, duration of sleep and sleep cycles. It has daily life reminders such as when to wake up or take medicine. Features include a power-efficient OLED display and IP67 rating, meaning it is protected against dust and water immersion up to one metre.
The 3Plus Swipe HR combines the features of a smartwatch with an activity tracker to create a life tracker that is ready to go at a moment's notice. It tracks steps, distance and calories burned. It also keeps track of daily meals via MyFitnessPal, as well as sleep quality, including periods of deep sleep and restlessness. Other features include a 2.8cm touchscreen display, heart-rate range alert, and automatic data sync to a smartphone without plugging in or pushing buttons, providing real-time access on a mobile app and notifications on the wearer’s wrist.
Contemporary square-face styling aims the 3Plus Touch smartwatch at fashion-conscious individuals. Activity tracking includes steps taken, calories burned, distance travelled, heart rate, quality of sleep and sleep cycles. It reminds the wearer when to take medicine or when to eat. The OLED touchscreen display shows the time and date, and smartphone notifications including the name or number of incoming calls, with a built-in microphone for direct answering. Other features include a lightweight lithium-polymer battery with a two-week standby time.
The look of a traditional timepiece coupled with today's digital capabilities are features of the 3Plus Time smartwatch, which measures time with big, bold Roman numeral hours, old-school hour and minute hands, and a digital OLED display for text, call and other smartphone notifications. Tracking activities include steps taken, calories burned, distance travelled, duration of sleep and deep-sleep time. It is available with a choice of a leather or stainless steel band.
