Swipe F-Band fitness tracker launched in India, available on Snapdeal at Rs. 1,499

Swipe has introduced F-Band fitness tracker in India at Rs. 1499. The tracker will be exclusively available via Snapdeal starting January 7 in blue and red variants.

According to the company, Swipe F-Band fitness tracker enables users to keep track of various activities. For instance, the band will track the number of steps walked. It will then display the number of calories you burned.

The tiny gadget also monitors sleeping activity with an ability to connect to a smartphone via Bluetooth. However, one needs to install F-band app, which retrieves all the required information. The tracker also includes a display that looks like a smartwatch instead of a simple fitness band.

Swipe F-Band fitness tracker includes a 55mAh battery that according to the company, has the capability to work up to seven days on a single full charge.

The tracker band is priced at Rs. 1499, but you can get it for Rs. 1299 if you are among the first 100 customers on Snapdeal.

There is a high competition among companies such as Yu, Xiaomi, Fitbit, Samsung, Noise, Motorola, Huawei and Sony in the wearables market with more in the fray in 2016.

We recently saw the sale of Huawei Honor Band Z1via Flipkart for Rs. 5499, which promises three days of battery life with support for iOS and Android.
