Sony adds to its wearable range with the SmartBand Talk & SmartWatch 3
Sony have announce the latest additions to their wearable SmartWear Experience range with the SmartBand Talk and the SmartWatch 3 both being announced at IFA Berlin 2014.
The SmartBand Talk is being hailed as a ‘lifelogger’, allowing users to take voice control and voice handling directly from their wrist and it comes equipped with a 1.4-inch e-paper display. The display for the SmartBand Talk is being considered one of its key features as it always remains on but results in low power consumption. This in turn allows the power of the smartwatch to be focused on its voice handling qualities. The SmartBand Talk is capable of forwarding calls from a smart device onto the wearable where users can take calls listening via the built in speaker and communicating with its built-in microphone that has HD Voice support.
The SmartBand Talk’s voice control feature will be able to comprehend a variety of languages including English, Japanese, French, German and Italian.
The SmartWatch 3 on the other hand seems to look much more like your typical smartwatch with its square i.6-inch face and a typical black strap, however the third generation upgrade from Samsung’s does boast a few cool features. The latest edition is based around the new Android Wear update, allowing the users to really make the most of their device. The SmartWatch 3 comes with a built-in accelerometer, compass, gyroscope and GPS sensor, plus it will have 4GB storage available.
The SmartWatch 3 has been designed and fitted with a 420mAh battery for improved battery life on its predecessor, which should last up to at least x2 days.
Both the SmartBand Talk and the SmartWatch 3 are to be released later in autumn this year.
