Pebble Time Round reborn? Acer Leap Ware is the newest circular smartwatch

Acer's Liquid Leap fitness tracker didn't exactly set the world on fire, but the company is making another go at wearables with the Leap Ware, a new fitness watch that's only $139. The watch itself is composed of a circular stainless steel frame alongside a polished finish.

The Leap Ware smartwatch offers a range of wellness and fitness features.

"The new Acer Leap Ware smartwatch features both MediaTek MT2523 and MT2511 bio sensing chips, which can receive and process data in a way that maximises performance and power efficiency, making it the flawless on-the-go solution to monitor fitness and encourage a healthy lifestyle". Backed by a MediaTek MT2523 chipset and MT2511 bio-sensing chip, the watch includes various fitness tracking features and a slew of sensors with cutting-edge algorithms. It'll send you notifications and enable you to control music but is effectively a fitness watch with heart rate and stamina tracking as being able to warn you when you are tired or stressed. Details on the devices are fairly sketchy, but expect a phone-like Android experience with support for all your favourite social apps including Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. It can measure heart rate, stamina, stress and fatigue levels and exposure to UV rays while you are outdoors and exercising.

Designed with durability in mind, Leap Ware's 42-mm (1.6-inch) face features with Corning Gorilla Glass SR+ which is scratch resistance with the legendary toughness, optical clarity and touch sensitivity of Gorilla Glass.

He says: "The Ware feels very basic, partly because it's so light, but also because it's made mostly from plastic". Device works with the Liquid Life companion app so you can access and view your data, check progress, and see if you've reached some important milestones. It comes with IPX7 certification which makes it water resistant and it is quite durable as well. As well, this watch has a built-in LED light, which is highly convenient for finding that pen you drop under the desk or your auto keys in a dark vehicle, etc. Those bands can be swapped out, and Acer sells its own navy blue and light brown options. The app allows you to set fitness goals, compete with friends and earn virtual coins, which can be redeemed with real-word items and discounts on the Liquid Life Market. It also boasts three to five days of battery life. The Leap Ware will hit shelves in North American in July, starting at $139.
