Global smartphone maker Sony Monday said it has expanded its smartwear portfolio in India by launching two wearable devices aimed at understanding the user's movements and way of life.
Developed in collaboration with software behemoth Google, the devices are powered by Android Wear, an operating system designed for smartwatches and other wearables and can be paired with a smartphone.
"After leading the market since 2007, SmartWatch 3 is Sony's latest generation SmartWatch, but the first specifically designed for the latest Android Wear updates in close collaboration with Google", it said.
"You can get messages from friends, appointment notifications, and weather updates at a glance. It could be flight information, tips based on your interests or messages of any kind, so user input is seldom necessary. But if you need to interact with Android Wear, voice is easiest way," the company said.
The second device, SmartBand Talk, is a powerful lifelogger, bringing call handling and voice control from the wrist with a 1.4 inch E-ink display which always stays on.
