The Sony SmartBand is the brand's latest contribution to the wearable tech world, currently populated by the Sony Smartwatch 2, Samsung Galaxy Gear and Google Glass.
Sony SmartBand: Features
Designed as part of a "SmartWear Experience", the SmartBand is powered by the Sony Core tracker. It's not just a fitness gadget, like the Nike+ Fuelband SE, Fitbit Flex and Jawbone Up - it also takes note of other things like how long you've slept, what pictures you've taken and when (and where), what videos you've watched, who you've spoken to and what games you've played. The result is that you can "watch your lifestyle played back to you on screen" via the Lifelog app, says Sony.
Sony SmartBand: Size and build
The Core is a tiny plastic unit with an accelerometer inside. It sports a mini USB port and also features LED lights and a vibrate function to alert you to any notifications from your phone.
Sony SmartBand: Verdict
Although we didn't very long to look at the SmartBand and Core, we liked the design and the feel of the device on our wrist.
