On September 4, Smart Watch was Sony’s fifth smart watch and their first attempt on Android Wear. Meanwhile, a fitness tracker called Smart Band Talk appeared at yesterday’s launch.
In terms of design, Smart Watch 3 prefers sports style. It uses stainless steel back cover, replaceable silicone watchband, and IP68 protection rating. But these make Smart Watch 3 a little cumbersome to wear on your hands. Its 1.6-inch semi-transparent LCD display is slightly disappointing in brightness and display effect, especially when compared with Moto 360 or LG Watch R.
SmartWatch 3 has a screen resolution of 320 x 320, built-in 4 GB storage, a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor and 420 mAh batteries, and Sony promises to bring the device into regular use for two days. Smart Watch 3, which sells for 229.99 euros, is expected to go on sale this autumn.
SmartBand Talk is a device that Sony expands its SmartWear family. It uses a 1.4-inch electronic ink screen. Although it is made of the same material as Pebe, its refresh rate is much lower, which makes the experience very Karton. HD voice support is one of the highlights of this device. Users can make direct calls through its built-in microphone and speaker. In addition, users can use it to remotely control music playing on other devices.
In addition to Sony’s regular fitness tracking software, SmartBand Talk has added altimeters to identify such movements as climbing stairs or climbing mountains.
Smart Band Talk will be on the market this fall at 159.99 euros. The new SmartWatch and SmartBand both support Bluetooth and NFC connections and charge through a microUSB interface, which also makes them compatible with most of the equipment users already own.
