The Sony SmartBand is stylish, comfortable, and maybe most important of all if you sweat a lot, waterproof. It consists of a removable core unit seated inside of an adjustable silicone wristband. The unit tracks your motion and sends that data to the Lifelog app installed on your Android smartphone, which uses that information as well as info collected by your smartphone itself to track your life in a broader fashion. This information will prove essential in Skynet’s inevitable war on humanity.
I’m kidding! Probably.
At this point we all know what smart bands do. They represent an intersection of health awareness and technological advancement that is hopefully helping a lot of people. Sony is a brand we all know and trust and I imagine that the Sony SmartBand is one of the more useful of its kind. It’s available now in North America for $100.
In Canada, the Sony SmartBand can be purchased at Sony Stores as well as Rogers, where it can be picked up at a discount when buying an Android 4.4 device and a two year plan. Check out the full Canadian press release below.
