What you should know about the SONY SmartWatch 3 SWR50
If you have been thinking about owning a smart watch, you need to check out the cool features of the SONY SmartWatch 3 SWR50 which is beutiful, lovely for camping, travel and other personal assistant functions. This outstanding technological piece is beautiful in hardware and software functionality.
The SmartWatch 3 uses GPS to track your route and distance so you can see just how far you’ve come.
It has a built-in compass lets you be an intrepid adventurer, and still find your way home for a cup of tea afterwards.
As an athlete Runing, walking or taking a stroll, SmartWatch 3 uses the accelerometer to detect exactly what activity you’re doing.
Combined with the accelerometer, the gyroscope enables precise calculation of your movements and direction.
On the wrist, the SmartWatch 3 has a clean, uncluttered, stylish look. While I was wearing it, several people commented on how modern it looked, with some even preferring it to the round G Watch R.
According to Digital trends, It has a rectangular screen, separating it from the circular-screened Moto 360 and the G Watch R, making it more reminiscent of the G Watch, and the Samsung Gear 2. Like other Sony wearables, the watch face is the “Core” of the device, and can be removed from the strap entirely.
The screen has a slight curve, and is mounted on a plastic shell with a polished metal rear casing. It’s solid as a rock, and cleverly designed to look slim on your wrist, despite it being quite thick when examined closely.
A silicone strap keeps the SmartWatch 3 in place. It’s thick, but it’s an absolute lint and dust magnet. The clasp is made of a polished metal, looks excellent, and is easy to adjust for a perfect fit. However, the way the clasp is held to the strap meant it often ensnared a hair on my arm, pulling it just enough to be painful. The strap isn’t as comfortable as a leather one, and did get sweaty after a very long day.
This is my first smartwatch I have gotten. Out of all of the Apple Watches, Fitbits, and round Android Wear watches, I chose this one.
I have had for just over a week, and I do plan to update my experiences as time goes on.
Update-7/22/16: I have had my watch for almost a month now, and here are more of my thoughts.
I don't really track my fitness anymore, so I can't update on the GPS. The battery life is roughly one day now that I have been using ambient mode and a changing watchface. I would also like to note that I don't use a lot of games, apps, etc. during the day, I usually just get notifications. You should probably be aware of that if that is something you would be using a lot. So, if you are in a dark room, I would turn that off while you are in there to get more out of your watch. I haven't really noticed anything out of the ordinary, but if I do, I will do an update.
1.This con I do not know who do blame it one, but I will address it anyway. I have used MapMyFitness for a while and it was a plus that it is compatible with Android Wear. Out of the three or so times, I have tracked a workout, one of them did not track my route.
2. The last con I have is the charging port. I do not care that is has a flap over it, but the flap bent the first time I charged the watch and I think the waterproofing is compromised a little because of it. I may be wrong, though.
3. Proprietary band- although the band is comfortable, you need to buy an adapter to use any other one. This one is indeed obvious, but I felt is was necessary.
1. Band-The band is very comfortable and is able to fit small wrists. The clasp is nice, too.
2. Battery life-The battery life is great. I lost only 40% one day and another I only lost 20%. Especially if you don't get a lot of notifications
and use GPS a lot, you could get probably up to 3 days.
3. Readability-The screen size is perfect and is (although washed out) easy to see in direct sunlight. I actually really like the square screen shape as well.
4. Fast-It is very, very, very snappy. The only lag I experienced was when it was first out of the box and downloading all of the apps.
5. The price. I got it for $117 at Sam's Club (Tax and non-member fee included). I was looking at the Asus Zenwatch 2 as well but in my opinion, this watch looks a lot better.
By in large, this is a great watch. This is great for people on a budget or those who just want a solid watch without dropping two-hundred dollars or more. Oh, and if anyone wants to know, I am using the KevinTong watch face'.
