From the outside, it may look like a bracelet enclosable by a snap fastener but from within this “supposed bracelet” is a device that works with your OneTouch smartphones. More than just being a wearable device, wearing OneTouch Boomband can also be fashionable which may complement your casual wears when going outdoors as an individual or with friends. You can also wear one with loved ones, too.

However, Alcatel OneTouch Boomband is best described as a smart band / fitness tracker. Utilizing Bluetooth 4.0 technology, it connects wirelessly to any of Alcatel’s OneTouch Boomband smartphone. Made out of thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU), Alcatel OneTouch Boomband is IP67-certified.

IP67, whose first two letters’ meaning is “ingress protection” and followed by succeeding numbers “6” and “7” which denote “total protection against dust” and “protected against the effect of immersion between 15cm and 1m” respectively, is a standard body that sets more specific and more detailed information on electronic devices rather than the use of vague terms such as the word “waterproof” which may have a different connotation and whose meaning may vary from product to product.

Alcatel OneTouch Boomband works as a smart alarm, sleep tracker, pedometer, calorie counter, and notifies you when you receive a call.

As a smart alarm, you can wear it as you sleep without the hassle of going through a missed alarm or an over too loud alarm clock that gives a bad after-effect when woken. Wearing Alcatel OneTouch Boomband, however, does so with an accompanying vibrating function on your wrist which feels like a constant tap from someone who cares reminding you to wake up on a designated time.

Monitor your sleep with its sleep tracker and see how much sleep you are getting for the past few days or weeks. An ideal accompanying tool to those who are concerned of such.

Wanting to make a record of being the “most walked” person in the world? Make an actual record of it as an evidence to the claim thanks to its pedometer feature. It records how many steps you have taken throughout your journey while walking. Perfect for outdoor activities such as mountain trekking, jogging, or just plain walking.

Monitoring your calorie intake based on quantitative measurements is also made easier with Alcatel OneTouch Boomband’s calorie counter. It helps you track those calories you may or may have taken as part of the diet and possibly as part of losing weight.

Last, but not the least, Alcatel OneTouch Boomband is an ideal company for those who can’t take a call but needs to get notified as soon as such a call is received, thanks to its call notifications similar to a smartphone would.

This wearable device is an ideal accessory for those who may have active bodies living an active lifestyle. Not just trendy, it is also pack full of many features deemed “smart” for electronic devices of this generation. At a price tag of only 2,499 pesos, you could get Alcatel OneTouch Boomband which works with either Idol x+, Idol 2, Idol 2S, Idol 2 mini, Idol 2 mini s, Alcatel Pop S3, Pop S7, or Pop S9 Alcatel smartphones.
