Alongside SmartWatch 3, Sony also launched the SmartBand Talk wearables in India today and is officially listed on the company’s India site at Rs 12,990.
Both the devices were first announced at IFA last September and the highlight of the Smartbank Talk is its 1.4-inch e-paper display which is always-on and curved in design. It offers a 320 x 320 pixel resolution and due to the e-paper display it also consumes low power and offers high visibility and clarity. The band is basically an upgrade to the SmartBand (SWR10).
Other technicals and features include a 32-bit ARM Cortex-M4 processor, 2MB of internal flash memory, a 70mAh battery, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0 LE and microUSB support. It is compatible with devices running on Android 4.4 Kitkat and above. Like the SmartWatch, the SmartBand Talk is also water and dust resistant with a IP68 certification.
The Band offers fitness and health activity track and logs alongside notifications and time. The built-in microphone and speakers allows for voice calling when paired with the smartphone.
Sony claims a 3 days if battery back-up and 1 hour of talk time. It will be available only in black color as of now in India.
