Review: The Most Promising Sony SmartWatch

Are you thinking of buying the Sony SmartWatch 3 but aren’t quite sure if it’s the right fit for your lifestyle?

You’ll find one of our hands-on comprehensive reviews on Sony SmartWatch 3 here on Iwearthetech.com, so you can make a more informed purchase decision.

Perhaps the thing about the promising new Sony SmartWatch 3 is that it is powerful and well-equipped. This wearable has a good size screen and a sizeable battery life, too. In fact, the SmartWatch 3 comes with a 420mAh battery, this represents the largest capacity yet released on an Android Wear watch.

Sony estimates two days of continuous use before needing to be recharged.  That will certainly come in handy for those wearers that want to stay “unplugged” for as long as possible.

Aside from slick performance, the Sony SmartWatch 3 also boasts a built-in GPS and Micro USB charger. But critics have slammed it for under-delivering in the style department. Some users don’t like the non-standard watch strap.  Another con to this wearable has been about the fiddly charging port and the iffy GPS performance.

That said, the Sony SmartWatch 3 is a pleasant surprise in many other ways (even though it falls flat in the looks department). It certainly does more than what other smartwatches do. In fact, it can also function as a fitness watch because of its GPS. It (shockingly) runs Android Wear and has a 1.2GHz quad-core processor plus 512MB of RAM.

Of course, all this power comes with a price tag of US$250 (£189.99). It’s not the most expensive smartwatch but it’s pricier than comparable the Huawei Watch and Moto 360. The Sony SmartWatch 3 features a 1.6-inch transflective display (320 x 320) to ensure crispness and clarity. The transflectivity makes reading in direct sunlight easier as well. Choose from a number of brightness settings or simply revert to auto mode, which does a great job of regulating everything.

Fans of the Sony SmartWatch 3 love the long battery life that lets them track movements and activities without worrying about having to find a charger. This promising smart watch even has a built-in compass for those intrepid adventurers who find joy in getting lost and finding their way home later. And because Sony SmartWatch 3 is integrated with built-in Wi-Fi, it lets you interact with apps right on the watch—no need to pick up your phone.
