Lenovo Launches Watch S and Watch C Smartwatches
Lenovo had secured their position as one of the players in the smartwatch market with their Watch 9 and Watch X. With other companies already making a mark in this segment such as Motorola, Huawei and Apple. Lenovo has already been making fitness trackers for a while now, but with their latest announcement of the Watch S and Watch C they are trying to target a different class of smartwatch.
The Watch S sits between the Watch 9 and Watch X and costs around ¥238. It will be available in Red and Black dial and straps. The watch features a new dial design along with sapphire glass, and a calfskin leather band. Unfortunately there is a lot that is missing from the Watch S in terms of a heart rate sensor, blood pressure monitor etc. But it does have sleep tracking, calorie counting and tracker of the number of steps taken. It also misses out on an OLED dial but can notify the user of new notifications by vibrating. The watch is also 5 ATM water resistant. It will go on sale on Lenovo’s official online store on October 30 at 10 AM.
The more interesting of the two products that were announced, is the Watch C. It is a kids watch that has a 1.3-inch AMOLED display and is slightly rectangular in shape. Lenovo has included features that a kids watch should have like GPS tracking, calling between watches etc. The GPS tracking can be useful for parents to track their children in emergencies. With the help of a companion app, parents and guardians can set the location of their home and school and they will get notified when the child reaches a certain location. There is also an SOS feature available. Priced at ¥399, the watch will be available in Blue and Pink colours.
