The Multifunctional Leikr GPS Sports Watch

Tech Industry
What's up, guys? This is Antuan Goodwin with CNET.com. On the floor at CES 2013 with a very early look at the Leikr GPS Sports Watch. This is a product that's coming out at Kickstarter and it's rapidly approaching its goal with an expected delivery date of June 2013. It's a sports watch that uses a GPS antenna built inside of it to track a number of different elements here. For example, you can track your current location, you can track your pace, how fast you've been running, how long you've been running. It's also got wireless connectivity built into it so you can pair it with an N plus heart rate monitor or a number of Bluetooth low energy accessories. It's a really big screen here, 2 inches, this is probably the biggest in its class we're told and it basically uses the really interesting technology that the more lights you put on it the better it looks. So, it's gonna be really good for those of you who like to run outside in the daytime, you don't have to worry about that screen washing out in the sun. It's a full color screen and it has built-in compatibility with open street maps, that's an open source mapping projects. So, you can actually upload your maps to this and upload routes to it. So, for example, if you have a running buddy who has a favorite route in your city, they can send it to you, you can upload it and you can pretty much follow the dotted line on the full colored map right here. It uses a Gorilla Glass screen, so you don't really have to worry about cracking it and a medical grade rubber band, so you don't have to worry about any sort of irritation. A lot of times when you're running with a sports watch, you'll have sweat under the band, starts irritating, you don't have to worry about that with this watch right here. It charges via USB with a cradle right here and you can also use the USB to sync but we're told that most users are probably gonna use the WiFi connectivity built-in for all the map syncing and downloading of the GPS data, no wires, nothing to really worry about right there. This is a very early look at a pre-production version of it. The final product is actually gonna have a number of changes. For example, this is IPx6 waterproof, the final products targeted IPx8. So, you should actually even be able to use it when you're swimming. That's good for triathletes if you wanna swim with this thing on. You've also-- we have also been told that there are gonna be a couple of changes to the interface. For example, the main screen right here that shows six very small attributes of what you're doing right now will possibly be customizable to show larger data so it'll be easier to see while you're running. Well, I've been Antuan Goodwin with CNET.com and we've been on the floor at CES 2013 with the Leikr GPS Sports Watch.
