Sony launches SmartWatch 3, SmartBand Talk wearable devices

Sony logoAs expected, Sony has launched two wearable devices at IFA during its main press conference. The SmartWatch 3 continues the SmartWatch line but switches over to Android Wear rather than Sony's own software, while the SmartBand Talk is a lifelogger which adds a display and voice control to the previous model's spartan design.

The SmartWatch 3 has a 1.6-inch 320x320 transflective LCD display, meant to help its visibility in sunlight, housed in an IP68-rated body that steps away from the design language of its predecessors. Packed with a microphone, accelerometer, compass, gyro, and GPS, the device offers some standalone functionality, while also performing usual Android Wear interactions and receiving notifications. Using a quad-core 1.3GHz processor with 4GB of storage and NFC pairing, its 420mAh battery is said to last for up to two days of normal usage.

With a sleek design, the SmartBand Talk uses a curved and always-on 1.4-inch e-paper display, which provides notifications and activity reports. The waterproof device performs typical fitness tracking functions, but it includes HD Voice support, allowing the wearer to make and receive calls via the band's microphone and speakers, and vocally control a smartphone.

Both the SmartWatch 3 and the SmartBand are expected to ship sometime this fall, priced at 230 euro ($300) and 160 euro ($210) respectively.
