The Acer Liquid Leap, on the other hand, has 1-inch display with a claimed battery life of up to 7 days on a single charge. It uses durable rubber wristband that measures only 17mm thick, making it one of the thinnest devices in its class. The Leap is reported to pair to devices through its Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity in which it will send its user fitness reports, call and SMS notifications, and even offer music control. Also, it is certified to be ready for immersion for 30 minutes in 1 meter of water.
Available in Moonstone White, Mineral Black, Aquamarine, Fragrant Pink, and Vivid Orange, the Liquid Leap is possible to come bundled as free with the Liquid Jade smartphone this coming July.
