Lenovo's me-too Smartband will unlock your PC

Lenovo may be late to the activity tracker craze with its unannounced Smartband, but it could have an ace up its sleeve. The company has quietly posted the wristwear on its site, and we now know that the device can automatically unlock your PC so long as it's nearby -- handy if you hate entering passwords. While the Smartband otherwise clones what you've seen in other trackers, such as heart rate monitoring and basic phone notifications, that proximity-based sign-in could be a nice complement to your Yoga 3 Pro. Just don't expect to pick up this wearable yet -- although Lenovo has a listing for the Smartband, there's no way to buy it at the moment.
