Motorola, now owned by Lenovo, is launching a new line of wearable accessories under the VerveLife brand. In all, five new accessories will be offered initially. They include a wearable camera, three sets of headphones and a GPS pet tracker.
The VerveCam is billed as an “ultra portable lifestyle video camera.” It will offer motion video with 2.5K resolution at 30 fps and a 138° field of view. It will support a number of social video formats, allowing to snap photos, time lapse, loops, slow motion and cinematic trailers. An included IP67 water proof sports case will also allow you to take it into the water and dive to depths of up to 30 metres. Integrated Wi-Fi will allow you to live stream video to Hubble Cloud and YouTube.
A number of headphone options will also be offered. They include the VerveOne wireless stereo earbuds that come with a protective charging case and 12 hours of battery life. The VerveRider is a collar-style set of headphones while the VerveLoop is another set of earbuds, this time in a one-piece design with integrated microphone and volume controls. There is also a line of VerveOne+ accessories which add IP57 water and sweat resistance.
Last is the VergeRetrieve, an IP67 certified waterproof GPS pet tracker that clips on to a collar. It comes with one year of GPS tracking, virtual fence and wander alert service.
A Hubble companion app (available for both Android and iOS) will be offered alongside the VerveLife accessories.
There is no word yet on availability and pricing. Those details could be revealed as early as next week at MWC 2016 when the VerveLife accessories will be officially unveiled.
