Internal hardware wise, the stainless steel version is an exact match to the original model. The changes are purely cosmetic, but the new look and feel definitely gives the smartwatch a more premium feel. Furthermore, Sony is also planning to sell a “holder” that, when attached to the core, allows wearers to change out to the band for a wide range of other styles.

Sony has yet to announce pricing details for the metal band SmartWatch 3, but has stated that it will be made available sometime in February. The holder and selection of other watch straps will go on sale later in the year.
