Last month Samsung Gear Fit was launched together with Samsung Gear 2 and Samsung Galaxy S5 in Malaysia. Now Sony is joining the wearable party in Malaysia by bringing in their latest wearable device – the Sony SmartBand SWR-10.
Sony SmartBand was first showcased during CES2014, and Sony call it as a Life-logging accessory you can wear 24/7 and associate the device with Android mobile app – Lifelog to view information about your communications, entertainment and monitor physical activities. A 24/7 wearable device, do people really need that?
*Yes you can wear it in the bathroom, it’s waterproof!
Unlike Samsung Gear Fit/Samsung Gear 2, the Sony SmartBand SWR-10 has no display.
