In addition to introducing us to the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge on Sunday, Samsung also revealed a host of new accessories it will be releasing for the handsets later this year. Amongst them was a Lens Cover, an LED View Cover and a Charm wearable fitness tracker. However, it’s probably that you won’t have noticed much about the second option as the firm opted to keep its details under heavy lock and key at the time.
We now know that the Charm has been made to look like a bracelet instead of a smartwatch. To do this appearance, Samsung has used a small LED panel to notify users of notifications rather than a fully-fledged LCD display. The lack of a large display means that the Charm won’t be able to run third-party applications, but it will have the capacity to record basic fitness data, such as distances and steps. This data may then be synchronised to the S Health application via Bluetooth.
The Charm will come in two versions and three colorways when it strikes the shelves – Rose Quartz, Gold and Dark with the rectangular or rectangular LED panel. All models sports a 17mAh Bluetooth and battery pack LE. The South Korean manufacturer claims that these devices can last up to 18-days about the same charge due to the low energy consumption of both LED panel and wireless connection. I must say, I’m pretty wanting to get my practical the Charm.
