Spot the difference: LG unveils Nike+ FuelBand-inspired Smart Activity Tracker

LG smart activity tracker

Fitness and lifestyle products are a major theme at CES, and LG's clearly eager to get on board the trend — its booth has a new prototype called the Smart Activity Tracker. As you'll no doubt have noticed, it bears more than a slight resemblance to Nike's FuelBand, sporting a similar dot matrix-style display and matte black rubber finish.

Despite this, it does actually have some cool features of its own — the band is controlled by a touchscreen, which should make it easier to control than the FuelBand, and the Bluetooth syncing does some neat tricks like showing contact information when a call is coming in. LG wouldn't speak to pricing, but it's planned for release this summer.
