The Sony SmartWatch 3 isn"t exactly breaking any new ground with its aesthetics.
It takes its kiến thiết cues from the rubber-strapped GPS running watch brigade và unsurprisingly looks more sporty than fashionable.

One thing that we did notice about that strap –it seemed lớn collect dust và grime like no watch we"ve ever seen before, as ifit"s some kind of fluff magnet. You"ll see what we mean in the hands-on pics.

The stainless steel version adds a bit of style to the phối and people who like the weighty assurance of luxury metal watches won"t be disappointed by the feel.

This version uses the traditional liên kết system, so you can adjust it lớn get a comfortable fit. It"s probably best khổng lồ let a watch shop bởi vì this though, as it"s not easy and you could damage the straps trying khổng lồ get the pins out.

The display is a 1.6-inch, 3đôi mươi x 320, LCDaffair, which lags behind the AMOLED tech found on the latest Samsung và Asus smartwatches.And it"s a deficiency that"s really noticeable with the screen offering verylittle vibrancy, and appearing pale and faded.

Viewing angles also aren"t great and, even withthe brightness turned up full whachồng, you"re not going to be blown away. Let"shope the next Sony SmartWatch follows the lead of the Xperia điện thoại thông minh line bytapping into the tech giant"s years of display heritage.

Sony SmartWatch 3: GPS tracking


Thebiggest selling point of the Sony SmartWatch 3 is that it packs in GPSconnectivity. That"s obviously a massive plus for anyone who wants toaccurately trachồng their runs without having khổng lồ lug their điện thoại thông minh around withthem.

Since Google introduced GPS tư vấn for Android Wear in the platform"sfirst big update, the major players in the run tracking ứng dụng game have sầu been slow togot their acts together. The RunKeeper tiện ích was recently updated to lớn include GPS support for Android Wear devices though, và the other option for smartphone-không lấy phí GPS tracking is Google"s own MyTracks tiện ích.

UsingMyTracks, which is fairly basic, we found that the GPS tracking on the SonySmartWatch 3 was actually impressive sầu. We did a few runs with it strapped on andthe distances tallied with our regular minutes per mile pace. We also comparedit with the Adidas miCoach Smart Run running watch và found that, over a 10kmrun, the SmartWatch 3 was within 20m after the 10,000m run – a great result.

Sony SmartWatch 3: Hardware

TheSony SmartWatch 3 is not only the first Android Wear device lớn pachồng GPS skills,it"s also got NFC và Wi-Fi connectivity built in – although there aren"t yetany features taking advantage of this hardware yet.

TheSmartWatch 3 has 4GB of storage space – pretty standard for an Android Wearsmartwatch – & is powered by a quad-core 1.2GHz Arm A7 processor, which seemsa bit like overkill in the early days of Android"s newest ecosystem.

Youwon"t find an tiện ích that makes the SmartWatch 3 stutter – although that"s alsothe case with other Android Wear devices with much less powerful processors.

Onething the Sony SmartWatch 3 lacks, compared to some of its OS brethren, is anoptical heart rate sensor but, given the inaccurate bpm info we"ve sầu seenrecorded from the likes of the Gear Live and the Molớn 360, that"s no greatloss.

Music playbaông xã with a Bluetooth speaker or someBluetooth headphones is a feature that is available on all Android Wear watchesnow, but it definitely feels the most useful on the Smartwatch 3 – there reallyis no need khổng lồ take your smartphone out running anymore with Sony"s latestwearable on your wrist.

We had no trouble pairing the SW3 lớn ourMonster iThể Thao running cans or our Cambridge Audio office speaker – althoughthe music syncing options through Google Play music is still a basic thiết lập (allor nothing, essentially).
