Technology: Samsung unveils Charm, a lifestyle band
Samsung’s newfangled lifestyle band will soon be on every fashionista’s wrist.
With its sleek exterior and brilliant functionality, ‘Charm’ by Samsung is no ordinary band. It is more of a fashion accessory than an electronic device.
The simple yet eye-catching square charm keeps tab of your fitness regime, including the number of steps you’ve taken in a day. It will also notify you of incoming calls, texts and social media updates.
“Its distinctive design, available in Gold, Black and Rose Quartz, is the perfect match for just about any style. Wear it alone for a sophisticated look or layer it with other trendy bracelets to complete an outfit that’s uniquely you,” Samsung stated in a press note.
Charm, alongside the Samsung S Health app, can monitor daily activity levels. The user can simply sync it with a smartphone via Bluetooth and pair it with the Charm by Samsung app.
Charm is equipped with a rechargeable, built-in 17mAh battery that allows you to use the device for up to 14 days on a single charge.
Samsung Charm is also compatible with smartphones running on Android OS 4.4 or subsequent versions including the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge.
As of now, Samsung has launched Charm in Korea, Italy, France and Russia. It will soon be released in other markets.
