Sony Introduces Its SmartBand

Sony makes the leap into the activity band market with the introduction of the SmartBand, which offers an interactive way to log your activity. While most bands are focused on fitness and health, the Sony SmartBand wants you to log your life by syncing it to its accompanying Android app, shown off her on the Sony Xperia smartphone.

Meant to be worn 24-7, and while synced, the band notifies the wearer of all incoming messages and notifications with gentle vibrations and LEDs. It also lets you control your music on the go; track activity, sleeping patterns, and steps; and more. It's also completely waterproof and when things get dirty, the SmartBand’s core can be removed for a thorough cleaning.

The Sony SmartBand is set to go on sale later this year, and will be available in an array of colors.
