Now that on-board GPS support (alongside offline music playing and more) has arrived to the Android Wear platform, it’s only appropriate that we see the launch of a watch that can take full advantage of this update.

The Sony Smartwatch 3 has now arrived for pre-order to Verizon at a price of $249 (outright) with a shipping date of October 30th. For those looking to get the watch outside of Verizon’s website and stores, Google says that the watch will soon be hitting Google Play and it’s likely other retailers will follow suit in the near-future as well.

Sony’s latest smartwatch moves away from the OS of its predecessors in favor of Android Wear, and while the experience will about the same as other AW devices already on the market, the biggest difference is the inclusion of onboard GPS. With the new offline music mode and GPS, the Sony SW3 could be the perfect watch for those looking for a companion watch for your runs or for biking.

Anyone planning on picking up this watch for its GPS capabilities?
