Sony SmartWatch 3 features

Contextually aware and smart Android Wear gives you useful information at a glance and responds to your voice. It feeds you relevant and specific information as you move. At a glance, you can view tiny snippets of useful information on the go. It could be flight information, tips based on your interests, or messages of any kind. User input is seldom necessary. However, if you need to interact with Android Wear, voice input is the best and easiest way.

A SmartWatch powered by Android™ Wear is forever expandable. As developers create new ways for you to customise and enjoy the Android Wear experience, SmartWatch 3 SWR50 becomes increasingly personalised and yours.
