seriously, how many people are into logging everything they do each day? i, for one, am not a fan of such ‘journalist’ approach to my life, but for everyone else who does, there is the Sony SmartBand SWR10 with Lifelog App to help to do just that. the SmartBand is essentially an activity tracker and fitness band that, works in sync with the Lifelog app, lets you log you daily stats, monitor your sleep, log the places you been too and more. the band itself has no display, so it is not a smartwatch, and has Bluetooth and NFC built-in for communication with your Android smartphone.
it is rated IP58, which means it is waterproof down to 3 meters of fresh water for up to 30 minutes and is designed to notify you, through vibration, of any tweets, emails, text messages and calls that may arrive on your smartphone. the band will also vibrate if you goes out of range of the smartphone (beyond 10 meters or 33 feet). so it also serves as a handy you-left-your-phone-behind reminder device for those who tends to be rather absentminded. apart from those features, including set goals and monitor progress, you expect from an activity tracker and/or a fitness band, the Sony SmartBand SWR10 also doubles as a remote when used with the WALKMAN app, allowing you to play, pause and skip tracks simply by tapping the band.
both the Sony SmartBand SWR10 and Lifelog App will be available worldwide starting next month (March), but the associated price tag is yet unknown. the Sony SmartBand SWR10 will be available in a variety of colors, though only black will be offered at launch. the rest of the color range, including a special limited edition to celebrate the 2014 FIFA World Cup, will make it to the shelves subsequently. in the mean time, you can catch a few more look, as well as a couple of product videos after the break.
