A lot of new devices have arrived in the Google Play Store this week, including the new Android Wear powered Sony SmartWatch 3. The listing for the Sony SmartWatch 3 in the Google Play Store lists the device for $249.99, but has the purchase button greyed out in favor of the label “Coming Soon.”
The Sony SmartWatch 3 is a well equipped wearable, at least as compared to the other offerings on the market. A Snapdragon 400, 512MB of RAM, 1.6-inch 320 x 320 resolution display and 4GB of internal storage are kept lit by a 420mAh battery.
Where the SW3 stands out is in the available sensors and connectivity. Specifically, the SmartWatch 3 comes with its own built-in GPS antenna and lists as being ‘WiFi ready.’ Aside from this, Sony includes a few apps of their own that will step up your fitness tracking game, particularly focused on standalone, or offline, functionality.
Be sure to check out our hands-on of the Sony SmartWatch 3 from its official launch at IFA back in September.
Early speculation includes the idea that the SmartWatch 3 will start to sell in conjunction with the release of an expected upcoming update to Android Wear itself. Android Wear 2, if you will, was expected by many to join Android 5.0 Lollipop and the new Nexus devices in launching this past week. Hopefully ‘soon’ in this case isn’t a long wait.
As the list of available Android Wear smartwatches grows, are you planning on grabbing the Sony SmartWatch 3?
