Sony SmartBand review: a fitness tracker that goes beyond fitness


Sony's created a rare beast: a wristband that isn't just about fitness. The companion app is fun, and has the potential to be genuinely useful. If Sony can convince more developers to work with the SmartBand's remote control feature, it could be a real...

Logs more than just physical activity ; Waterproof ; Comfortable ; Easy to set up

Battery life could be better ; No social features ; Disappointing selection of third-party apps

I think there's a trick being missed here. As it stands, the SmartBand feels like it's living up to about 75 percent of its true potential. Lifelog is clearly meant to be the focus. The app isn't perfect -- I'd love to be able to drill down into even...

Sony SmartBand with Core review


Sony's Core hopes to be inside every piece of wearable tech you own. We aren't yet sure if the idea has legs, but we like what we've seen so far.

Sony SmartBand SWR10 review


When Sony first unveiled its SWR-10 SmartBand at CES 2014, I confess I had a bit of a "whiskey tango foxtrot" moment.

Sony's SmartBand is a lightweight simple device that's easy to set up and has a companion app that's packed with features. It's dust and water proof and has a great battery life.

Some tracking results didn't seem overly accurate and some of the features weren't very useful. The design is also a bit bland, and its not great for real fitness junkies.

The SmartBand is an ambitious recipe that needs a little more time in the oven. There are better trackers on the market.

Sony SmartBand SWR10


Part activity tracker, part notifications accessory, and part journaling tool, the Sony SmartBand SWR10 has a lot of potential, but needs more refinement.

Innovative, versatile design. Waterproof. Beautiful app. Lots of graphs for stats lovers.

Finicky band closure. Complicated setup process. Confusing notifications. Rudimentary fitness tracking capabilities. Virtually useless media controls.

Sony Smartband review: a good start, but needs work


At the time Sony's new wearable ambitions were announced, I noted it was to a “hushed and confused crowd” . The reason the deluge of press members at CES were silent was because nobody knew quite what to make of Sony's Core announcement. It didn't seem...

We’d like to propose this is a beta product, and we have our reasons. First, having more than one app for a single device suggests this is meant for a platform. Smart Connect has uses beyond the Smartband, and we’d like to see a day when the tiny,...

Sony SmartBand SWR10 Review


The Sony SmartBand SWR10 is a wearable fitness bracelet that is light, elegant and that works with Android phones of all brands…

Extremely lightweight and compact, you can almost forget you’re wearing it ; Works with all Android 4.4 phones ; Water resistant with IP58 certification ; 5-day battery life ; Sleep monitoring is nice, and silent alarm is great too

Setting it up is a bit too lengthy of a process ; No way to track any other types of exercise apart from walking and running ; No display at all

The Sony SmartBand SWR10 is now sold for $100, a price that is not too high given that the competing FitBit Flex is also sold for $100, while the Nike FuelBand+ is priced significantly higher, at $150.

Sony SmartBand SWR10 review: easy to lose, easy to forget


We put the Sony SmartBand SWR10 through its paces.

: While Sony has crafted a solid product in the SmartBand SWR10, there are some major, major flaws that can’t be ignored. I was glad to return it, because I was afraid that I’d lose it, and there’s a sentence I don’t use often with gadgets. It does...

Sony SmartBand review


As evidenced by the early arrival of the SmartWatch, Sony is unafraid to dip its toes into new territory.

Sony SmartBand Reviewed


Sony's SmartBand is an interesting take on the wearable category. It tries to distinguish itself by letting you track more aspects of your life, and even offers limited control over your smartphone. However, its more-involved setup process and limited...

Small and light design ; Different color band options ; Good sleep tracking

Only works with Android 4.4 devices ; Involved setup process ; Finicky smartphone remote control ; No diet tracking

Sony's SmartBand tracks your daily activity as well as what you do on your smartphone, but the information it gathers isn't all that useful.
