Sony Announces Smartwatch 3 and Smartband Talk


Sony announced the addition of two devices to wearable lineup on Wednesday, the Sony Smartwatch 3 and Smartband talk.

Running Google’s wearable-specific Android Wear operating system (OS), the Smartwatch 3 offers significant steps up from the Smartwatch 2, including a higher-resolution 1.6in 320×320 TFT LCD “Transflective” display, which Sony claims helps users see the screen better in bright sunlight, set within a stainless steel back panel.

Like most other Sony gadgets, the Smartwatch 3 is of course waterproof, with an IP68 certification rating, and charges via a standard microUSB port. It also has voice recognition functionality.

Sony has been keen to mention that the Smartwatch 3 doesn’t rely on an internet connection in order to function and claims to be “an accessory with impressive standalone functionality” due to its built-in microphone, accelerometer, compass, gyroscope and GPS sensor technology means more accurate and powerful “lifelogging.” This refers to Sony’s Lifelog health tracking application, which Android users can get at the Google Play store.

The Sony Smartwatch 3 also has 4GB of internal storage, meaning users can sync playlists and connect with a Bluetooth headset to listen.
