New Xperia Line has already been announced by Sony but that’s not all the company has saved for IFA and there is much more. Sony has recently unveiled it SmartBand Talk wearable which is capable of tracking everyday activity along with the call handling and smartphone controlling. What’s best is that the device is capable of controlling the phone with the voice control and Sony has integrated its very own Voice Control technology in it.
“We’re going beyond mere fitness tracking and number crunching, to help you log and preserve those emotional moments that matter,” said President and CEO of Sony Mobile Communications, Kunimasa Suzuki. “As a pioneer of smart and wearable technology, SmartBand Talk, SmartWatch 3 and Lifelog don’t merely affirm Sony’s leadership in the space, but as the innovators who dare to be different – bringing the world choice; products and services no else can, or will”.
The SmartBand Talk can be detached from its core which has been made from silicon. It weighs only 26 grams. The device has 1.4” e-paper display with 288×128 resolution. A 70mAh lithium-polymer battery helps to keep running the device’s ARM Cortex-M4 processor and internal memory of 2MB. The battery power might seem less at a glance but for the e-paper display, it is enough to keep the device running for three days. Bluetooth and NFC are the connectivity options of the device; it can be connected to any smartphone having the Android 4.4 or above. Also the band is IP68 certified which makes it water and dust proof.
This new Sony device utilizes Sony’s Lifelog app for Android which has been created to “Set and achieve your goals, bookmark memorable moments and revisit forgotten memories anytime, anywhere”.
Later this year, the third-party developers will be able to get the API of the app. The SmartBand Talk will be available in October with the price tag of €159.
