Acer, at this year’s Computex event which is held in Taipei, has unveiled several devices including a few smartphones and a tablet. Perhaps unsurprisingly, they’ve also taken the wraps off of their very first wearable, a smartwatch called the Liquid Leap.
The device will feature notifications, fitness and sleep tracking as well as have the ability to control media playing on your smartphone. Plus, it’s waterproof and the whole thing is controlled via the Leap’s touchscreen. Which is all well and good, it’s more or less in line with what we’ve seen from other similar devices. But the company has an interesting take on the wearables market in general. They’re planning on learning as they go on the smartwatch trend.
Acer CEO Jason Chen, speaking in an interview with Engadget, said that “We believe over time the market will prove itself. What we have to do is get the product [out] and see how it goes.”
“This is the first product we’ve introduced in the wearable market, and it won’t be the last. We understand the market is going up, and we have to make sure we don’t miss it. What we are learning, the industry is also learning.”
