According to a recent report, the Acer Leap Ware has already passed through the FCC with the model number L05, which help it put a closer step in the launch for the US market. The smartwatch was already launched by Acer in April and at the same, the Leap Ware was expected to go on sale in July in the US. Now with the certification from the FCC, it’s still on the track.
Although this is not a typical smartwatch as it mainly focuses on its health and tracking features. So in many ways, it can be seen a fitness tracker product, but covered with a smartwatch body. Besides it’s the fitness tracker standard, the Leap Ware can also provide even greater feedback for aspects like stress, and UV exposure. Furthermore, unlike a number of smartwatches currently on the market, instead of running on Android Wear as normal, the Leap Ware runs on separate and proprietary OS. This new operating system can easily connect to your smartphone, provide notification alerts, and control some of certain aspects like camera on the smartphone.
