Sony SmartWatch 3 review: dull design, but great for runners


This here is the Sony SmartWatch 3. That might make it sound like it's the third iteration in a line of gadgets, but really, it's the first. That's becau

Built-in GPS is ideal for runners and other athletes ; WiFi and NFC make this more future-proof than other Android Wear devices ; Relatively long battery life ; Display is easy to read in direct sunlight

Drab design ; Screen isn't as vibrant as on some other smartwatches ; Not many Android Wear apps currently make use of the GPS, WiFi or NFC

Sony's latest smartwatch won't be for everyone, what with its dull design and muted screen. Still, this is currently the only Android Wear device with a built-in GPS radio, making it a smart choice for runners and other athletes interested in tracking...

Sony SmartWatch review


The Sony SmartWatch is an intriguing device — a secondary display for your Android-powered handset that provides quick access to notifications from select apps and services on your phone. It's also able to show you who's calling or texting, control...

Better looking than most smart watches ; Definite geek chic factor ; Comfortable ; Works seamlessly with a recommended handset ; Music controls are a nice touch

Software is overly complex to set up ; No guarantee of future compatibility ; Apps are of limited use ; Initially confusing ; Expensive

The successor to the LiveView adds a few more features, but is it as smart as it claims?

Sony SmartWatch Review


We've seen quite a few innovations in the world of mobile accessories from strictly basic Bluetooth enabled headsets going from Mono to Stereo (A2DP) to a variety of corresponding gadgets from jewellery to sports equipment. For Sony and it's previous...

The price tag on Sony’s SmartWatch Accessory is Rs. 6,299, which is in a little bit of a grey area as high end accessories go. It certainly does have it’s plus points, but on the down side, it should have had an audio out option to simplify the user...

Sony SmartWatch review


We can't help but notice how similar it looks to the iPod nano, launched two years earlier. The screen resolution is rather low at only 128 x 128 pixels, about half that of the iPod nano's 240 x 240 pixel display.

The Sony SmartWatch is a cool and attractive gadget, one that you want just for the sake of it. However, it's more than just a shiny touchscreen watch offering plenty of apps and functionality. The downsides are a slightly bulky design and the need to...

Sony SmartWatch


The Sony SmartWatch enters the realm of usability thanks to recent software updates, but it's still more of a smartphone accessory than a solid, stand-alone timepiece.

Sleek, stylish look ; Wide range of wireless functions notifications, call handling and music control made possible by a Bluetooth smartphone connection

Needs an Android smartphone connection to function or even keep the time ; Not compatible with iOS ; Display can't be read in sunlight ; Needs to be charged daily
