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

 

The idea of a Bluetooth watch that keeps you updated about phonecalls, text message and tweets and allows you to get yourself into Eighties teen comedy style scrapes with a spy camera, is almost too cool to be true. The Smartwatch is pretty good as a...

Not bad looking, small, battery life is decent

Strap supplied isn't that comfortable, the gestures and touchscreen are a mess, screen resolution is poor

The Smartwatch is pretty good as a gadget-lover's phone companion. The big problem with it is that it needs a phone to function, along with all those apps that you need to install before it will work.

Sony SmartWatch review

 

We can't help but notice how similar it looks to the iPod nano, launched two years earlier. The screen resolution is rather low at only 128 x 128 pixels, about half that of the iPod nano's 240 x 240 pixel display.

The Sony SmartWatch is a cool and attractive gadget, one that you want just for the sake of it. However, it's more than just a shiny touchscreen watch offering plenty of apps and functionality. The downsides are a slightly bulky design and the need to...

Sony SmartWatch review

 

Editors' note: Sony has recently equipped the SmartWatch with fresh software . This review has been updated to reflect these changes.

The Sony SmartWatch draws the eye with its sleek, stylish looks. It also offers a wide range of wireless functions notifications, call handling, and music control made possible by a Bluetooth smartphone connection.

The Sony SmartWatch needs an Android smartphone connection to function or even keep the time, it isn't compatible with iOS, and its display can't be read in sunlight. It needs to be charged daily.

The Sony SmartWatch enters the realm of usability thanks to recent software updates, but it's still more smartphone accessory than solid standalone timepiece.

Now you can look like Dick Tracy, with this watch that connects to your Android smartphone. It shows calls, messages and notifications. It's got a touchscreen. It's powered by Android, so can run apps. Basically, it makes other watches look like...

Sony Smartwatch

 

A window on your world, or a closed door?

Although it’s a vast improvement over the Sony LiveView, the Smartwatch still suffers from too many failings to be a product that we can wholeheartedly recommend. Even so, it does have its uses, and if you can live with its shortcomings then you might...

Sony SmartWatch Android remote

 

Review Sony has tried this remote phone manager and viewer malarkey before with its LiveView [1] that first appeared almost two years ago [2]. The idea was sound but the execution was somewhat undermined by the fact it just didn't work. Evidently, Sony...

Unlike the original LiveView, the new SmartWatch actually works. It’s thinner, has a better screen and more importantly maintains a much more reliable Bluetooth connection with your phone. It also benefits from a broader selection of better third-party...

Sony Smartwatch – Review

 

It's here, it's really here! I was so excited to see the 'missed delivery' card from the postman, knowing what was in the packet. I had been anxiously waiting for the delivery from Clove since I first read about the new version of the SmartWatch,...

Sony SmartWatch Review

 

We've seen quite a few innovations in the world of mobile accessories from strictly basic Bluetooth enabled headsets going from Mono to Stereo (A2DP) to a variety of corresponding gadgets from jewellery to sports equipment. For Sony and it's previous...

The price tag on Sony’s SmartWatch Accessory is Rs. 6,299, which is in a little bit of a grey area as high end accessories go. It certainly does have it’s plus points, but on the down side, it should have had an audio out option to simplify the user...
