Recently Sony has announced their first ever Android Wear smartwatch dubbed the SmartWatch 3. According to the company, the watch is slated to launch later this year. A specific date has yet to be given by Sony but the Google Play Store is listing the Sony Smartwatch 3 as “Coming Soon.” This is exciting news as this sign could possibly mean that the release of the new Android powered smartwatch by Sony is around the corner. The Sony Smartwatch 3 joins the Moto 360, LG G Watch and the Samsung Gear Live in the Play Store and will cost you just $249.99.
The Sony Smartwatch 3 is described to be, “a state-of-the-art smart watch and life logging accessory.” In addition, the SmartWatch 3 is an intuitive and interactive device that provides personalized information which keeps you connected to all notifications on your smartphone. Of course, these joys are made possible by Google’s lovely Android Wear, the operating system that many companies are now using to join the smartwatch revolution. But going back to the Smartwatch 3, the device comes with a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor and 1.6-inch 320—320 LCD display. The internal hardware that comes equipped on this wearable is 512MB of RAM, 4GB of native storage, and a 420mAh battery. Another cool factor about this watch is the rated IP68 water resistance. Sony makes sure to show you buy giving you angled shots of the watch drenched in water.
This contextually aware smartwatch is impressive inside and out. With the release around the corner, many of us can’t wait to hit the buy button in the Google Play Store. Next to Motorola, LG, and Samsung, Sony is the fourth player to join team Google in this new wave of smartwatches that are powered by Android Wear. More OEM’s are expected to join the era of smartwatches through the help of Google’s wearable software too. From what we have seen now, future smartwatches are going to get even better and more innovative. The Sony Smartwatch 3 is just one of them, being together with everyone else but not the same.
