Sony’s SmartWear Experience brings users Lifelogging, flexible style and Life tools

The SmartBand is said to be an “innovative life logging wristband that lets people keep track of everything including walking, running and counting calories”. It is a 24/7 wearable device with a completely waterproof core, meaning users can wear it in all conditions. Wearers can also be alerted to calls, messages and other notifications through a vibrating alert. When enjoying music on the move people can play, pause and skip tracks using the SmartBand. Additional software updates will be available in the coming weeks for the Lifelog application allowing users to log routes and times for driving, cycling and train trips.

“SmartBand and its innovative core are extending beyond fitness tracking, to add colourful, fun entertainment experiences to users’ lives,” said John Featherstone, Managing Director, Sony Mobile Communications Oceania. “Users can now simply log special moments and watch your life played back to you on your Sony smartphone or Android device just by wearing it wherever they go.”
