Sony adds new smart wear devices

The new Sony Smartwatch 3

Sony Mobile have announced the addition of two new products to its SmartWear Experience range, Sony SmartBand Talk and SmartWatch 3.

Both sync to Lifelog, Sony’s tracking and lifestyle app and are yet more proof that Sony regards the wearable space as one of its most important sectors for growth.

The Smartband Talk comes equipped with a short call function so you can talk into it and hear your caller, and allows the user to assign their own sounds to life bookmarks and features a built-in accelerometer and altimeter sensor technology. These provide an overview of daily physical activity; whether it be walking, running or climbing. You can see how active you were and how you have been communicating, as it pulls all of your information from your smartphone and then enables you to view it on its e-paper display screen, wherever and whenever you like. Sony claims it to be completely waterproof and launch styles will include Black and White, with other colours available later in the year.

The SmartWatch 3 is Sony’s latest generation smartWatch, and the first specifically designed for the latest Android Wear updates from Google.The latest iteration provides several upgrades from Smartwatch 2, including a 1.6” 320×320 TFT LCD Transflective display for visibility in bright sunlight, built-in 4GB local memory, and waterproofing.

It will be available in Classic (Black) and Sport (Lime) editions, with extra colour straps available in Pink and White after launch.

Both products should be available later this autumn.
