After a while of thinking about it, Acer has decided to jump on the booming wearable band wagon with the Liquid Leap. It's a 17mm band which Acer says will be capable of activity tracking and lifestyle tracking.

The Liquid Leap will also offer what Acer calls 'easy messaging' and will be bundled, in some countries, with the Liquid Jade handset.

Acer has warned that the Jade and Leap will be a 'limited release' so it's unclear whether the devices will launch in the UK or now.
