On the hardware side, the Sony SmartWatch 3 stands out from the crowd, but some of its brightest features are not yet enabled by Android Wear. Still, it's a solid performer with the added bonus of built-in GPS. The design of the smartwatch, however, does it no favors, being the least attractive of all the options available: not a plus for a device that should also be considered as an accessory.
If you're more interested in the hardware, performance and functionality of your wearable, then the Sony SmartWatch is a good choice. Especially once NFC and Wi-Fi are enabled by a future upd... Full review
In many ways I really like the Sony SmartWatch 3. It's not an essential device - no smartwatches are yet - but I'm in the camp that finds Android Wear genuinely useful, particularly as a quick and unobtrusive way to check notifications.
The Sony SmartWatch 3 also stands out from much of the competition through impressive performance, a good screen and solid battery life, not to mention the inclusion of GPS which makes it a better fitness accessory than most smartwatches, despite an imperfect implementation.
When it comes down to it though I don't think I'd buy one and... Full review
The Sony SmartWatch 3 manages to improve the feature set compared to its predecessor thanks to built-in GPS. But it still falls short in a some areas, making that smartwatch purchase decision less clear cut than the high-flying Sony specification may suggest.
Our main qualm is the overall look of the SmartWatch 3. It seems to have almost taken a step back on the design front, while other competitors march forward. It just doesn't look like a quality wearable, which is what many people are pining for in this market. With the LG G Watch R delivering a more premium built (albeit a t... Full review
Sony's SmartWatch 3 certainly isn't for everybody. It's dull compared to its rounder, sexier rivals; its strap is made out of rubber rather than leather; and the display is not as bright or vibrant as others. But if you care more about function than form, the SmartWatch 3 suddenly looks a whole lot more interesting. For runners in particular, built-in GPS is a great feature that lets you leave your phone at home. It also has WiFi and NFC, making it more future-proof than the competition. It also eschews the need for a charging dock thanks to a built-in micro-USB port and has a battery life... Full review
Certainly not the best Android Wear smartwatch on the market, the SmartWatch 3 is Sony’s best chance at sticking it out in an increasingly high-margin and high-stakes ecosystem. That the SmartWatch 3 can be used with any Android 4.3+ smartphone makes it less about staying within the Sony ecosystem as about pairing it with the right device — The Xperia Z3 and Z3 Compact are waterproof, too — the SmartWatch 3, at $280 CAD, is not as enticing as the Moto 360 despite the addition of a GPS.
Despite excellent ergonomics, the LCD panel is too washed out to encroach on... Full review
As fitness bands gain more and more smartwatchlike features, it's only natural that smartwatches pick up some tricks from their sportier counterparts. That's what initially made the Sony SmartWatch 3 so appealing to me. As a runner, I thought I could have a GPS watch when I went on my training runs and that it would still be useful for all other times. If GPS isn't as big of a concern for you, though, the Pebble Steel offers a much greater number of apps, works with Android and iOS, and will soon get the benefit of Android Wear-style notifications. Among Android Wear devices, I prefer the m... Full review
The SmartWatch 3 is definitely Sony's best smartwatch yet. The switch to Android Wear, however, is both a blessing and a curse. It's an improvement over Sony's previous smartwatch UI, but I'm just not convinced that it's ever going to become the type of operating system that makes the smartwatch something people need, rather than something they maybe-sort-of-want.
That said, the SmartWatch 3 is also the best Android Wear device yet for athletes, thanks to its built-in GPS and waterproof build. But without more apps to take advantage of the GPS feature, it isn't reason enough to p... Full review
