Acer Liquid Leap+

Tech Report

By: Nick Gambino

Because there aren’t enough fitness trackers in the world (Fitbit, iFit, Polar Loop 2, etc., etc.) Acer has released the Liquid Leap+, their brand of smart fitness tracker that you can slap on your wrist.

Now, Acer released other versions of the Liquid Leap last year overseas but the Liquid Leap+ is the first Acer fitness tracker released in the U.S. While it’s already an over-saturated market there is room for a new and innovative design.

Unfortunately, the Acer Liquid Leap+ isn’t it. Don’t get me wrong, it works just fine but that’s where the problem lies. There’s no “reinvention of the wheel” or at the very least “creative improvement of the wheel.”

Acer Liquid Leap+The Liquid Leap+ is pretty much what you can expect out of any other fitness tracker on the market. It tracks your number of steps, running distance, calories burned as well as minutes in the day you were active.

Its waterproof design allows you to take it in the water no deeper than a meter for a half hour. That means half hour showers are a go. If you take showers longer than 30 minutes leave the Liquid Leap+ out of it. Also re-evaluate your priorities – 30 minutes is way too long to be bathing yourself.

One unique feature that only some of the other trackers have is its ability to track your sleep hours. When you’re ready to hit the hay just set it to sleep mode and it will log your snoozing hours.

Acer Liquid Leap+With iOS, Windows and Android compatibility you can connect your smartphone through Bluetooth in order to control your music selection right from the Liquid Leap+. Various settings will allow you to get notifications like calendar events, alarms, incoming calls, e-mails and texts. Obviously if you use an iPhone and already own an Apple Watch then these functions are taken care of and no need to invest in the Liquid Leap+.

When it comes to fashion some wristband devices pretty much stick you with whatever color you buy. The Liquid Leap+ on the other hand comes with 3 interchangeable bands. The colors are lime green, fuchsia pink and charcoal black (in other words: black).

There’s no need to constantly charge this guy as the battery life lasts up to a week after a full charge with a micro USB.

In a statement, VP of Acer’s Smart Products Business Group, Hugo Hernandez said, “The Acer Liquid Leap+ was designed to inspire and improve the daily lives of active technology enthusiasts. It’s incredibly easy to use for tracking important aspects of health, while it provides additional useful features. In addition, the sleek and stylish design and interchangeable bands look great with a range of styles.”

While it’s not a revolutionary product by any stretch of the imagination the Acer Liquid Leap+ is worth checking out for sure if you’re in search of a fitness tracker. You can pick one up for $79.99 at Acer’s online store or for a few bucks cheaper on
