Sony's SmartBand is a little more than a fitness tracker, but it's not a smart watch either. This device ties into the Sony Lifelog app to track your movement and connect the dots between your physical and digital activities. Interested? The SmartBand and Lifelog app are hitting the market in over 60 countries next month. That means only a few more weeks of using your dumb brain to remember things that happen to you.
There is no clock face on the SmartBand, but it does know how to track your steps, exercise, and sleep. That data is piped into Lifelog along with location data and social content. The band also has a button that lets you create a "life bookmark" to indicate all the data and photos from a block of time are important so you can review them later. See? Better than a brain.
The SmartBand SWR10 will vibrate to alert you to a call or message on the phone it is paired to over Bluetooth, and can also be used as a wireless media control. When you walk too far away and the Bluetooth connection fades, the SmartBand vibrates to make sure you don't forget it.
Sony didn't specify a price for the wristband, but it won't be long until we find out.
