That’s right! Yesterday Sony announced their latest SmartWatch – the SmartWatch 3… This time with Android Wear and more standalone functionality!

The third smartwatch produced by Sony – the SWR50.

This is the first truly amazing SmartWatch they produced in my eyes. The specs speak for itself. Compared to my SmartWatch 2 everything is bigger and better.

  • IP68 Waterproof rating
  • Quad ARM A7, 1.2 Ghz
  • 512 MB RAM, 4 GB eMMC
  • 420mA battery (up to 2 days normal use)
  • Ambient light sensors
  • Accelerometer
  • Compass
  • Gyro
  • GPS
  • Voice, touch and gesture input
  • Bluetooth® 4.0
  • NFC
  • Micro USB port
Here's the predecessors of the SmartWatch 3 - the SmartWatch 1, left, and the SmartWatch 2.

Here’s what TechRadar said in their review: “Probably the best Android Wear device out there… as long as you don’t want a round watch.”

You can view the watch and its full specifications on Sony’s website.

I’ll definitely be saving for one of these! I’ll keep you updated as soon as I have more info!
