Sony has differentiated itself from other fitness trackers and smartwatch makers by introducing the Sony SmartBand SWR10, which features a unique Lifelog app that monitors and logs daily life activities. The SmartBand not only helps you set fitness goals and monitors your physical activity; it also automatically records your social and entertainment activities with its application.
The Sony SmartBand SWR10 has a simple modern design, so if you are looking for a more fashionable fitness tracker that is going to make a statement, it might not excite you to the same degree. The SmartBand SWR10 is available in three colours, including purple, white, and black. The core is removable and weighs around 6g. At one side of the core, there is a Micro USB port that is used for charging the device, and on the other side, there are three small LED lights and a button used to switch between day and night modes.
Performance and Battery
The device is powered via a 35mAH Li-ion battery that is charged using a Micro USB cable. The battery lasts for up to 5 days on a single charge. Charging time is approximately 60 minutes. The smartband is compatible to devices that support 4.0 Bluetooth or run an Android v4.4 OS. You can also pair the band with NFC-enabled smartphones. The device uses the Smart Connect app to configure settings such as notification alerts. The most useful app is the Lifelog app that uses a colourful interface to show your daily physical, social, and entertainment activities such as walking, sleeping, social media communication, playing games, reading, calories intake and more. The SmartBand features Life bookmarks, which help the user in capturing memorable moments immediately. There is a smart alarm as well that wakes up the user at the best times based on their sleep cycles.
