During Sony’s Xperia Z5 launch in Malaysia, their SmartWatch 3 from IFA 2014 has finally made an appearance on our shores. Running on Android Wear, the Smart Watch 3 is compatible for either Android and iOS based smart phones. If you’re interested, you can have it for RM1,099.
To recap on the specs, the Smart Watch 3 gets a 1.6″ 320×320 display and under the hood, it gets a 1.2GHz Quad ARM A7 processor with 512MB of RAM. With a 420mAh battery on-board it is rated to last 2 days on a single charge.
With 4GB of storage, you can use the SmartWatch 3 standalone as a music player while you go for a jog. With independent WiFi connectivity, you are able to receive updates if you’re away from your phone. The strap is easily replaceable and Sony has a range of options that you can buy separately. For charging, there are no fancy docks or magnetic charger and Sony opts for a standard microUSB port that’s covered at the back.
The aforementioned price will get you the Black strap (standard), while adding an extra RM 300, that’ll get you the more premium Silver Metal version. Trendy users can also opt for an additional Sport Strap (in Lime) for RM 199.00 or a Pink coloured strap, at the same price.
