Laser points to value with new smartwatch

The first addition to Laser’s refreshed V-Fitness-branded upcoming range has hit the market just in time for the Christmas rush. At $99.95, the V-Fitness Smart Fitness Watch is another value-oriented device release in a time where there is a heavy market focus on this price point.

The smartwatch tracks activity, shows messages, and syncs to Apple Health and Google Fit. It includes a 24/7 heart rate monitor, 12 sport modes, weather forecast, alarm clock, stopwatch and three coloured band options. The watch has two weeks of battery life between charges, wrist activation and a rating of IP68 water resistance which means it can withstand dust, dirt or sand.

The Smart Fitness Watch precedes a suite of new fitness and health related technology products that Laser will launch in early 2021.
