MGCOOL are back just after a brief Christmas and New Year resting period, the Chinese manufacturer of action cameras, wearables and accessories has announced the roadmap for 2018.
The first product they’ll be launching is the next-generation MGCOOL Band 5, which is expected to ship with several new features in addition to those already available on previous MGCOOL Bands such as automatic heart rate monitoring, sleep tracking, pedometer, calorie and much more.
