Sony SmartWatch 3 review: Brains over beauty


The latest Android Wear watch to enter the race for your wrist is the Sony SmartWatch 3. As a company in the wearables game since the outset, experience shows in this third generation device. But after previous so-so attempts is it finally a case of...

GPS built-in, good battery life for standard use, microUSB charging, slim design

Design lacks premium quality, display not the brightest, Android Wear still has limitations

The Sony SmartWatch 3 manages to improve the feature set compared to its predecessor thanks to built-in GPS. But it still falls short in a some areas, making that smartwatch purchase decision less clear cut than the high-flying Sony specification may...

Sony Smartwatch 3 review: gently ageing Android Wear watch still holds its own


No looker, this, but a solid performer at a bargain price

Packed with features ; It's a steal at the price ; Slick performance

Washed out screen ; Pretty awful looks ; Short-ish battery life

Sony SmartWatch 3


Updated: Now with video of Sony's first Android Wear watch

Built-in GPS ; Runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop ; Supports Micro USB charging

Limited GPS-enabled app support ; GPS has big impact on battery life ; Dull, ordinary design

There’s no real complaints to have with screen responsiveness, while the square watch face means there are no optimisation issues displaying Android Wear apps as the developers intended them to look. Sony includes some basic display accessibility...

Sony SmartWatch 3 review


Android Wear is Google's operating system for wearables, and most new smartwatches including the SmartWatch 3 have adopted it rather than use their own system. In our Sony SmartWatch 3 review we'll look at how this Android Wear device compares to its...

The SmartWatch 3's biggest strength is its built-in GPS, but you'll still need a smartphone for driving directions. It's also great to see a standard USB charging port.The transflective screen is a good idea, but in practice battery life is no better...

Sony SmartWatch 3 review


Our wrists get acquainted with Sony's latest Google-powered timepiece

Built-in GPS for phone-free running ; Android Wear runs slick and smooth ; Waterproof build, comfortable strap ; Decent battery life

Washed-out colours and yellow whites ; No heart-rate monitor ; Proprietary watch strap

A waterproof build and GPS powers make this the best fitness smartwatch around. Shame about the washed-out display though

Sony SmartWatch 3 hands-on review


Sony was early to the wearable market and is now on its third-generation of smartwatch. So here's our Sony SmartWatch 3 hands-on review. Read: The best smartwatches of 2014: List of the best wearable tech you can buy right now.

It was almost inevitable that Sony would launch an Android Wear wearable and we like the SmartWatch 3. It has decent specs, interchangeable straps and is completely waterproof. We can't help feel it's a little overpriced compared to rivals, though.

Sony SmartWatch 3 Review: An Android Wrist Rocket?


We review Sony's SmartWatch 3 (SWR50), an Android Wear wrist rocket that can play music independently of your phone.

Slender design ; Decent battery life ; No stupid dock ; Offline music

Washed-out screen ; Lacks premium finish

Sony's SmartWatch 3 isn't cheap at £180, which makes it a real shame that the finish isn't a bit more premium and the screen isn't more joyously vibrant. That said, I like the slender design and solid catch, and Sony's wearable also entices with...

Sony SmartWatch 3: Getting on, but it's now dirt cheap


Sony's sporty SmartWatch 3 packs in some interesting features - at a very reasonable price

The Sony SmartWatch 3 is a good smartwatch, but we can’t help but feel that it could have been so much more. On the plus side, the built-in GPS and transflective display set it apart from the crowd, battery life is decent and it’s sensibly priced, too.
