Sony SmartWatch 3 gains stainless steel duds


Just a few months after launching the SmartWatch 3, its first Android Wear effort, Sony has announced a new version of its Android-based wearable.

Sony says that a stainless steel version of the SmartWatch 3 will launch in February. The device itself will be just like Sony’s original SmartWatch 3, meaning that it’ll have a 1.6-inch 320×320 LCD, but it’ll have a more premium stainless steel body.

Sony also revealed today that it’s prepping a new SmartWatch 3 holder that’ll let you use the SmartWatch itself with any 24mm watch strap. The new SmartWatch 3 holder will launch in the “early part of 2015.”

Another tidbit of news out of Sony today concerns its Lifelog app for Android. Sony says that users can now access Lifelog online at lifelog.sonymobile.com using any device, including smartphones, tablets, and TVs. Sony is also working with health and lifestyle apps like IFTTT, Habit Monster, and Withings to help you make Lifelog more about you.

Finally, Sony teased a prototype for its new Smart B-Trainer device. The Smart B-Trainer is meant to be an all-in-one that you wear while running. It’s got dedicated memory that can give you voice coaching, play music, and suggest a soundtrack for your workout. The device is also waterproof, so all of that sweat from your workout won’t bother it one bit.
