Sony is adding two new editions to their SmartWatch 2 line, a Silver metal edition and, in celebration of the World Cup this year in Brazil, the FIFA edition, both looking to add some class and style to the smartwatch experience.
U.S.-based Sony fans, the wait is over! The Sony Xperia Z1, Xperia Z Ultra and Smartwatch 2 are now available in the United States. Keep reading for more details.
We’ll compare the three — Galaxy Gear, Pebble, and Sony Smartwatch — in a few key areas. At first glance, they all seem pretty much the same, but once you dive into the nuance, they become three very distinct choices.
If the leaked image is accurate, we know that ‘Xperia Z1’ is the official name of the device. We can also surmise that pre-orders will start soon, perhaps even tomorrow after Sony announces the device at IFA.
At right around $200, it’s not a significant investment for many, but also not an impulse buy. The success or failure of this will depend on apps and interface. Sony says their interface for this watch is more like Android, which will make it familiar for a wider audience.
The Sony SmartWatch 2 will be shipping in the UK starting with the week of July 15 in the UK, according to a local retailer. Read on for more details!
This week, we got a bunch of contradicting rumors about the Note 3, the Sony Xperia Z Ultra and SmartWatch 2 landed, the Google Play Edition phones stirred some controversy, WSJ spilled the beans on Google’s plans for the rest of the year, and Android 4.3 leaked in all its glory.
Qualcomm is rumored to launch its own smartwatch, called ZOLA, in September, although not many things are known about the device at this time.
Sources in the Taiwanese electronics industry claim that Sony is gearing up to launch more variants of the SmartWatch, to accommodate more budgets and market segments.
Pricing details for the Xperia Z Ultra and SmartWatch 2 have been revealed by Sony France and Sony Netherlands.
