Sony SmartWatch 3 gets a fresh new look

Sony earlier unveiled a stainless steel edition of the SmartWatch 3. Featuring a 1.6″ 320×320 TFT LCD Transflective Display providing clear visibility even under direct sunlight, the Sony SmartWatch 3 includes ambient light sensors, accelerometer, compass, gyro and GPS. The water protected (IP68 rated) wearable is powered by a 1.2 Ghz Quad Core ARM A7 processor with 512 MB RAM, 4GB eMMC storage and 420mAh battery.

With Android Wear, the Sony SmartWatch 3 accepts voice input for search, provides notifications, weather, travel, commuting, calendar and reminder data and a whole lot more.

The SmartWatch 3 is highly customizable and can be loaded with apps available in Google Play. The SmartWatch 3 can also be used with any standard 24mm watch straps. Sony has also partnered with Golfshot, iFit and will include these apps out of the box.

No word on the metal SmartWatch 3’s SRP yet but it shouldn’t be that far from the Php 12k price of the Sony SmartWatch 3 in the market today.
