My prior smartwatch, Sony Smartwatch 2, had some irreparable “dead pixel” issues and it went dark somewhere in the middle. I liked the battery life of my Sony Smartwatch 2 that I decided to procure its newest version, the Sony Smartwatch 3 with the metallic silver wristband.
Now my verdict…
The Cons… The battery life of Sony Smartwatch 3 is lesser than its predecessor. My old Sony Smartwatch 2 can run for 4 to 5 days in between charging. Sony Smartwatch 3 is only good for 2 days with a maximum of 3 days of normal use (with the tilt wake off). Compared to Smartwatch 2 where you can change its wristband using any 24mm straps, you need an “adapter” to change Smartwatch 3’s wristband.
The Pros… The availability of hundreds of clock faces and applications for the Android Wear is awesome. And since it is using an Android operating system, Smartwatch 3’s connection and notification features with my Android device is superbly seamless. Of course, the screen size does matter. Smartwatch 3 has a larger screen size which makes reading easier compared to the Smartwatch 2.
In short, the Pros outweighs the Cons in Smartwatch 3. I am very happy with my new Smartwatch 3! 🙂
