LAS VEGAS, CES 2014 – LG clearly got the memo that 2014 is set to be the year of wearable electronics — since the South Korean manufacturer has taken advantage of CES 2014 to unveil its new Life Band Touch fitness wristband.

The device — which lets users track physical activity including steps taken, distance covered, and calories output — can be synced with both Android and iOS devices, using Bluetooth 4.0.

The Life Band Touch also includes touch controls for music playback and receiving calls from the synced device, as well as allowing users to check phone notifications and stated exercise goals.

The device can be paired with “heart rate headphones” designed to check blood flow in the ear as a way of measuring the wearer’s pulse.
