Sony debuts Xperia Smartwear

Sony debuts Xperia Smartwear

Sony is officially in the game of wearable tech with the debut of the Xperia Smartwear which records your activities throughout the day.  Now I said “activities” because this is much more than just another fitness band that counts steps and calorie output.  However, it’s not quite a smart watch such as the Qualcomm Toq.

Smartwear gently vibrates on your wrist when you receive a notification or a call, but the really cool feature is the bookmark feature.  With the simple press of a button on the wristband, Smartwear will record everything that is happening at that moment.  For example, you’re out with friends at a restaurant or you hear something on Pandora, it will record that moment in time for future reference.  It also comes in a plethora of colors to choose from!


There is no set price or date of availability, but Sony promises something soon!
