Pebble Time Round reborn? Acer Leap Ware is the newest circular smartwatch

When Acer CEO Jason Chen showed off the company's latest wearable, the Leap Ware, at Acer's annual conference, the slender looking wrist-wearable looked as though it had promise. The new Leap Ware looks more like a smartwatch, with a stainless steel round frame that resembles the old Pebble Time Round device.

There are plenty of fitness-themed smartwatches now on the market, but majority have one unfortunate detail in common: They're pretty expensive. On the same lines, the company has now announced a new wearable which is essentially a smartwatch but also doubles as a Fitness band. It has a MediaTek MT2523 chipset and MT2511 bio-sensing chip, and a 42mm display with Corning Gorilla Glass SR+, which should make it scratch-resistant.

The watch comes with its own proprietary operating system and a smartphone app for iOS and Android called Liquid Life.

The new Acer smart fitness watch can monitor heart rate, stress levels, stamina, fatigue and ultraviolet ray exposure.

The problem with Leap Ware is that Acer doesn't have a fraction of the users Fitbit does, so you might not be able to find enough folks to share your activities with. The app allows you to set fitness goals, compete with friends and earn virtual coins, which can be redeemed with real-word items and discounts on the Liquid Life Market. The Leap Ware also features an IPX7 water resistance rating so if you're out exercising and you caught in the rain, you won't have to worry about the watch getting damaged. The battery can last three to five days, depending on unit configuration, power settings and usage. It has built-in LED light which illuminates at the press of a button which is useful features in the dark. The watch bands are switchable and come in light brown or navy blue, but the unit itself is compatible with any 0.7-inch band the user prefers.

Beyond North America, the Leap Ware smartwatch will also be launching in Taiwan in August for NT$4,990, and inn Europe in the third quarter of 2017 for €139.
