Ideal for anyone who can’t decide whether to buy a fitness tracker or a smartwatch

from Digital Trends
If, like me, you want the lightweight, power-sipping convenience of a fitness tracker, with a few smartwatch-style features added in, just without the extra weight and decreased battery life, then the SmartBand Talk makes sense. It’s functionally mid-way between the two devices, and a solid compromise.The SmartBand Talk may have slipped under your radar thanks to the wealth of other wearables hitting the market at the moment. This is a shame, because it’s one of the few I’d happily use every day. .. Full review

Much more than just an activity tracker

from ZDNet

The Sony SmartBand Talk can be found online for $169.99. As much as I like the unique functions, having a battery that last 2-3 days for activity tracking is too low for my own usage.

Calls sounded excellent on the SmartBand Talk on both my end and the callers end. I thought the calling functionality was just going to be a gimmick, however with the high quality performance it was nice to hold calls while keeping both hands free to do other things.

I always seem to forget to switch to sleep mode on my activity trackers, but the SmartBand Talk tracks sleep automatically.... Full review

A simple combo minus the fancy smartwatch features

from TechRadar
While a bit expensive the Sony SmartBand Talk is pleasantly simple in hardware and interface. It offers a smartwatch and fitness combo for those not too bothered about experiencing everything the smartwatch revolution has to offer... Full review

Great smartwatch/fitness tracker hybrid

from PC Advisor
It's worth noting, though, that the Sony SmartWatch 3 can be found for just £50 more, so if you're after SmartWatch functionality more than fitness tracking it's definitely worth investigating before making the decision to buy the SmartBand Talk... Full review

Jack of all trades, master of none

from Pocket-lint

The Sony SmartBand Talk SWR30 is beautifully designed, comfortable to wear and succeeds on its namesake's aim to enable calls on your wrist too. But it doesn't quite thrill in any one department.

For many that E Ink display, given its Kindle-like monochrome form, will be a compromise in terms of appearance, nor does its presence bolster battery life to exceptional levels. The display is clear and delivers a sharp image, but it's difficult to see in low-light conditions and we found ourselves missing the colour and brightness from similar devices that we've used in the past.

Packs in calling functionality and an E Ink display

from Wareable

While the SmartBand Talk definitely looks to be an improvement on Sony’s original lifestyle tracker, it’s not really accurate enough to compete with the established players in this genre. Unlike Fitbit, Garmin and Jawbone, the level of recording or analysis is basic at best and useless at worst. The E Ink display is a nice addition, even with the ghosting problems and the notifications are brilliant. But the calling features aren’t really needed, and perhaps the battery life could have been improved by leaving them out entirely. With a price tag of £130, it’s h... Full review
