Sony Smartwatch 3 Review – Learning From Mistakes

The previous iterations of the Sony Smartwatch were not that good, and consumers would almost immediately look for other options in the market; however, things might change with the Sony Smartwatch 3. Sure there are some better options out there, such as the Huawei Watch and the Moto 360, but the Japanese tech manufacturer did place a few neat tricks up its wearable device’s sleeve.

The Sony Smartwatch 3 is Better, But Still Not Perfect

For instance, the Sony Smartwatch 3 is able to last up to two days with light to medium use on a full charge. While this might seem meek, do know that many smartwatches struggle to attain that reach. Clearly, Sony took some pointers with regards to their Xperia Z3 and Z5 smartphone lines, as these mobile devices can last for days on a single, full charge. Do take note that handsets of today struggle to maintain operational activity even for one day.

The 3rd iteration to the Sony Smartwatch also has a built-in GPS functionality, and it can be used to tracks walks or jogs. What’s more is that you don’t have to connect it with a smartphone to use such a functionality.

All of these features are placed in a relatively affordable price tag. Furthermore, this is more than just a smartwatch as it does have ambitions of being a very capable fitness tracker due to the aforementioned built-in GPS.

While it does contain a lot of promise, it does not, however, bring about a stunning first impression. If you’re looking for a more refined style with regards to a smartwatch, then you’re better off at taking a look at some of the Android Wear out on the market, such as the Moto 360 and the Huawei Watch. However, if the design does not bother you much, and would want a wearable device that can act as a smartwatch and an activity tracker at the same time, the you might want to check out what Sony has to offer for the Smartwatch 3.

Even though its appearances fall flat on the floor, the Sony Smartwatch 3 does have a few other surprises that would still make you want to purchase this. For one, the mere fact that it runs on the Android mobile operating system does come as a bit of a surprise, especially since Sony has spent the previous years trying to avoid that possibility as they attempt to perfect their own OS for their wearable tech instead.
