Sony has been making smartwatches before smartwatches were even a thing. That’s why they can call their new wearable the Smartwatch 3. This is Sony’s first smartwatch to run Android Wear. We were expecting to see a lot of new Android Wear devices from IFA, but Sony was not on the radar.┬áBack in March they said they were not interested in Android Wear, and would continue investing in their own platform.

The Smartwatch 3 has a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 1.6-inch display, IP68 waterproofing, 4GB of storage, 512MB of memory, NFC, and a 420mAh battery. Sony claims the battery can last two full days with use, and up to four days on standby. If the battery claims are true that would be a big win for Sony over current Android Wear devices.

Sony has tried smartwatches before. Could the Smartwatch 3 be their first big success? What do you think about this smartwatch compared to the offerings from Motorola, LG, and Samsung?
