Sony’s new Android Wear Smartwatch that appeared on Google Play a while ago as “coming Soon” has now become available. You can now buy the Sony SmartWatch 3 from Google Play Store for $249.99 and it will be dispatched within 1 or 2 business days. The SmartWatch 3 is already available through Verizon Wireless.

Sony’s SmartWatch 3 has a sporty rugged look, laying more stress on fitness rather than elegance. It is the only Android Wear device to have a GPS that helps you to track your runs. The smartwatch is waterproof with IP68 certification so that you can wear it while showering, swimming or running in the rain. IP68 rating means it can remain immersed underwater up to a depth of 1.5 meters for 30 minutes.

Apart from this, the SmartWatch 3 has features similar to any other smartwatch. It sports a 1.6-inch 320×320 TFT LCD display, 1.2 GHz quad-core ARMv7 processor, 512MB RAM, 4GB internal Storage and a 420mAh battery. The Smartwatch  is slim with dimensions of 36mm x 10mm x 51 mm and a weight of 38g. It has Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.1 connectivity.

The smartwatch pairs with devices running Android 4.3 or higher to give notifications about calls and messages. It can play music through the Walkman player app. It also acts as a fitness tracker and records the number of steps, distance walked and also your sleeping time. It uses Sony’s health and lifestyle tracking LifeLog app. The smartwatch can keep track of your activities done during the day, the songs you have listened to and the movies you have watched.
