Yesterday Sony came out of nowhere and showed off a stainless steel version of the Sony SmartWatch 3. The original SW3 only had a rubber/silicone band that made the device look like an over-sized fitness tracker. We got a chance to take a closer look at the new steel band and a holder that allows you to use any 24mm watch band.
The cool thing about the new steel SmartWatch 3 is that the it’s still possible to pop out the display/body of the actual watch. This makes it easy to switch between bands on the fly. Speaking of switching bands, Sony also showed off a new holder for 3rd party bands.
The holder works just like the proprietary Sony bands except for one big difference: there is no band. It’s just a piece of plastic that holds the smartwatch display/body. You can then attach any 24mm band like you would with a typical watch. No word on pricing or release date was given.
