Lenovo has launched its latest fitness wearable in India, the Smart Band Cardio 2, priced at just Rs 1,499. The smart band comes with 24-hour continuous dynamic heart rate monitor, a lithium-polymer 100 mAh battery that lasts up to 20 days on one charge, and a 5ATM waterproof level. The feature allows the band to survive 50 metres of water immersion when a user is swimming or surfing. The company currently holds 8 per cent market in this segment and aims to tap the budget segment with the latest offering.
“Lenovo is pushing smart wearables as a category since last year and the launch of Smart Band Cardio 2 is a step in the same direction. The Indian fitness wearable market is poised to witness immense growth, and we have already captured over 8% of market share in the segment. There is a great deal of untapped potential for smart bands, especially in the affordable segment. By offering a unique health and wellness proposition through advanced features, we are confident of capturing larger market share in the price sensitive market,” said XieSenchu, General Manager, International Business at Shenzhen Aodishi Technology Limited, Lenovo Beijing’s authorised Channel Partner for Sales in India.
