Sony SmartBand 2 review


Sony's second SmartBand lacks the pace-sensing skills for success

Sleekly styled step tracking ; Comfortable enough to wear 24/7 ; Fairly accurate

Poor battery life ; Lack of a display makes notifications meaningless ; Partner app fails to motivate

A minimalistic wrist-wrapper with a paired-back phone companion make for meaningless motion monitoring

Sony SmartBand 2 review: Life tracking that misses a beat


The latest addition to Sony's SmartWear range is the SmartBand 2, a fitness tracking band with an updated Sony Core unit - the main heart of the device which slips into the accompanying wristband - that now adds heart-rate monitoring to the party. The...

Comfortable, built-in heart-rate monitoring, some interesting elements in apps

Lacks some basic metrics like distance, couldn't detect running accurately, battery life too short

The Sony SmartBand 2 develops on last year's offering, improving the comfort and fit and widening the range of features that it offers. It's an interesting proposition as it offers a little more than some of the basic activity trackers, without going...

Sony Smartband 2 Review: In Depth


Sony Smartband 2 (SWR12) Review: We rock Sony's latest fitness wearable, the Smartband 2, featuring built-in heart rate monitoring & smart sleep features.

Light and customisable design ; Heart rate monitor ; iOS and Android ; Waterproof

Short battery life ; Need app for feedback ; Less smart than UP3

Sony’s Smartband 2 doesn’t do anything revolutionary, despite being a decent little fitness wearable. Like many fitness trackers it can monitor your daily movements and sleep patterns on a fairly basic level, while the built-in heart rate monitor is...

The Sony Smartband 2 activity tracker looks stylish, and has a built-in heart rate monitor. But are looks everything? We put it through our tough tests to see if it can match up against newer activity trackers for functionality, features and accuracy.

Sony SmartBand 2 review: A finger on the pulse


Sony squeezes a heart-rate monitor and IP68 waterproofing into its latest fitness tracker

Despite its shortcomings, the Sony SmartBand 2 is decent fitness tracker. It’s good value for a fitness tracker with a heart-rate monitor included, and it delivers more useful heart-rate data than the Jawbone UP3, which tracks your pulse only while...

Does the job!


It is comfortable to wear and a very simple design. Not flashy at all as no display or info on the actual band, just 3 small dots that light up on the side. I find it accurate and useful with the app on my phone,
