Tech Data has revealed that the Acer Liquid Leap range will now be available among its collection of wearable devices.

The Leap boasts a touch-controlled user interface, while its waterproof material allows users to wear it in all weather conditions.

The device tracks the wearer’s daily activities and allows users to receive email and SMS alerts, as well as control their phone and music.

Additionally, the Leap boasts a week’s battery life and is available in a range of colours, including green, pink, orange and black.

Mark Glasspool, director of consumer product marketing at Tech Data, said: “The Liquid Leap range is really exciting, combining a great set of features with stylish looks and the strength of the Acer brand.

“They are competitively priced in a market that is growing fast and we see this is an opportunity to bring new customers into the wearables market. As such, we’ll be looking to develop breadth and push them into the SMB space too.”
