The Sony SmartBand is Sony’s most recent addition to their wearable technology range.
It is a slightly more intelligent fitness band. Tracking your steps and calories burned, the SWR10 SmartBand goes one stage further recording the weather, what photos you took and what interaction you had with your phone in any given day.
Pairing with your Android 4.4 handset via Bluetooth the band and the phone communicate to transfer the data between the two.
Access the ‘Lifelog’ app on your phone and you can see all the activities in a very clear and easy to use way thanks to fun and interactive graphics.
Sony’s promotional video does an excellent job of explaining how it works.
You can see just how powerful it is.
At the time of writing and recording the SmartBands are sat waiting to be shipped on the official launch date of the 1st May, but we wanted to have a play with them so we unboxed one. You can see in the video below what you get in the box and our initial opinions.
Be sure to check back in a week of so when we will have a full review of the SmartBand and give our honest feedback on it.
