Sony’s New Three Hands Square Hybrid Smartwatch

by in News .


Sony has this week launched a new hybrid smartwatch called the ‘Three Hands Square’ - a square smartwatch with a feminine design, that puts NFC and Smartphone Notifications on your wrist. It is to be sold in Japan only.

Here’s what you need to know:
 

The Three Hands Square


The Three Hands Square boasts in-built NFC and smartphone notification support, and joins Sony’s Wena hybrid smartwatch in the range. There are 3 versions of the Three Hands Square with 18mm, 20mm, and 22mm lug sizes, with all models rocking a square, analogue dial which is aimed squarely at women with its minimal, feminine design.

Interestingly, the Three Hands Square loses or gains functionality depending on the type of watch strap you choose. Proprietary stainless-steel straps add notification functionality to the watch, while the leather bands take this away. However, the NFC module and all activity tracking modules are in the square watch itself so these are present always.

Other than NFC support, activity tracking and optional smartphone notifications, the Three Hands Square does nothing more than tell the time. For this reason, Japanese consumers might be best looking to other hybrid smartwatches since Sony’s latest offering is very basic.

Pricing and Availability


The Sony Three Hands Square will go on sale later this month in Japan only.

At current exchange rates, the price is around $93. For that price, you get the square watch without a strap to wear it on. A Sony leather strap will cost you an additional $75, while a Sony stainless-steel strap will cost you an eye-watering $300 or so. That takes the total cost of the Three Hands Square to around the $400 mark. And, since it is only available in Japan, you might incur import duties should you ship one over.
