More Than Time

Sony has an established history with smartwatches, but the new SmartWatch 3 is the first to use Google's Android Wear operating system, opening it up to more apps, and a wider audience.

Long time gadgets are increasingly useful in daily life, it is now possible to get our hands electronic devices capable of performing many tasks simultaneously, without neglecting its true function, either for cellular, music players or video games.

The same is now happening with an accessory that has accompanied human history, the clock is now possible to have thousands of shares, notices and other in the comfort of your wrist, this is to mean a gadget that does everything, while keep us on time.

Use your voice to search and find what you want, get weather reports to the minute information on your laptop out, whatever happens in your smartphone, it  vibrates to let.

You can choose from a variety of belts: formal, sophisticated, casual, vibrant colors, sporty style and all are made with the finest materials.

Even without your smartphone, the SmartWatch 3 SWR50 is a fun and useful accessory. You can fill it with music to take with you if you're going to run. When you're out, you can keep track of your activity and movements, and synchronize with your LifeLog when you get home.

The Android Wear, giving you useful information at a glance and answer your specific voice information relevant and where you go. At a glance you can see bits of useful information wherever you go. It could be flight information, based on your interests, or messages of any kind advice.

On the wrist, the SmartWatch 3 has a clean, uncluttered, stylish look. It has a rectangular screen making it more reminiscent of the G Watch, and the Samsung Gear 2. Like other Sony wearables, the watch face is the "Core" of the device, and can be removed from the strap entirely.

The screen has a slight curve, and is mounted on a plastic shell with a polished metal rear casing. It's solid as a rock, and cleverly designed to look slim on your wrist, despite it being quite thick when examined closely.

A silicone strap keeps the SmartWatch 3 in place. It's thick, but it's an absolute lint and dust magnet. The clasp is made of a polished metal, looks excellent, and is easy to adjust for a perfect fit.

Android Wear will only get better
The latest version of Android Wear is installed on the SmartWatch 3, ensuring it takes advantage of the added GPS functionality and offline music playback Google has added. The software is identical to that found on other similarly equipped smart watches, so both the positive and negative aspects of Google's wearable OS are present and correct.

It's early days for Android Wear, and its functionality is limited. It's stable though; the integration with Google Now is slick; and voice control makes sense on a wrist-worn device. Provided you stick to the basic phrases — reply to messages, start a timer, open apps — there's little need to interact with the screen on the watch, let alone your phone. It's fun, natural, and provided you can get past talking to your watch in public, a quick way to operate the device.

A major selling point of the SmartWatch 3 is the built-in GPS. This means you can go running wearing the watch, leave your phone at home, and still sync up when you return.

The SmartWatch 3 is very much a Sony product. It's subtle, stylish, extremely well made, and very functional. There's every feature you could want, plus one or two which will come into their own in the future, as Android Wear evolves.
