YiFang launches NextONE smartwatch and wristband pedometer

unnamed

YiFang Digital launched a few pieces of wearable tech this week at CES, and they’re hoping to make a splash in a market that’s quickly becoming more populated. The NextONE line of devices offers a smartwatch and a wristband pedometer for Android and iOS devices. Both are set to launch in Q1 of 2014, so we should see them hit shelves in the next month or two.

The NextONE smartwatch is packing Android 4.1, Bluetooth 4.0, a 1.55-inch 240 x 240 display, and a 290 mAh battery. Compared to devices like Samsung’s Galaxy Gear, the NextONE isn’t going to blow anyone away. But at just $99, it’s sure to give the Pebble a run for its money.

The NextONE pedometer appears to be intended for the health gurus out there, as it tracks distance walked/ran, calories burned, intensity of activity, and more. The pedometer will be priced lower than the smartwatch, at just $39.99.

This is YiFang’s first foray into wearable tech, and it looks like they’re off to a good start. If you’d like to get more details on either of the NextONE devices, you can check out YiFang’s product pages.
