Forget your Smartphone
Where Sony’s Smartwatch 3 loses out by not looking like the traditional wristwatch, it makes up for it in functionality by being properly equipped with features like built-in GPS functionality and having a longer battery life compared to most other smartwatches; its battery can go on for up to two days. The Smartwatch 3 also charges via the common micro USB cable, which makes it easy to charge as everyone has a micro USB cable laying around somewhere.
It is not the most realistic timepiece of a smartwatch around, but it definitely gets the job done.
Your Smartwatch, Your Style
The Sony Smartwatch 3 comes in three different types to suit your every need. The core unit of the Smartwatch 3, the part that holds all of the important components of the smartwatch, is separable from the many different types of straps.
If you are attending a more formal event and want a classy looking watch, use the stainless steel chain-link strap. Going for a casual meetup with your friends in the afternoon? Use the beautiful leather strap. Want to play some ball and get some workout in? Put on the rubber strap.
There is a style for every different use when it comes to the Sony Smartwatch 3, it is versatile and efficient in many different ways.
Two-Day Battery Life
Where most smartwatches can only hold out for a single day’s worth of battery life, the Sony Smartwatch 3 can go on for roughly about two days with very medium use. If you do want to charge it though, you will not have to worry about any proprietary charger like other smartwatches; just pull open the cover on the back of the watch and charge via micro USB.
Google is everywhere. In your smartphone, in the Internet, in your laptop – now it is on your wrist! One of the greatest things about the Android Wear operating system is that they do not allow for manufacturers to add in their own unnecessary software (bloatware), save for some manufacturer-exclusive watchfaces.
Android Wear is a very intuitive operating system and user interface. Navigating through the entire operating system is very easy and comes naturally to most people. To look through your notifications, you swipe up and down on the watch display to go through each of your notifications left and right to select an action for that notification.
