Is there a place for a SmartWatch in your gadget portfolio?
Sony will launch the latest iteration of its SmartWatch concept in the next couple of months, but unlike other competitors this is not a space that Sony has just entered on a whim. Sony’s first offering in this space was LiveView which went on sale in November 2010. This was then followed up by the SmartWatch that launched in April 2012. Sony has seen the value of such a wearable gadget for a while now and since the LiveView launched it has helped create a decent ecosystem of dedicated apps for the accessory.
However, whilst Sony is about to embark on its third-iteration of the device, we were wondering how many of you see this as the future? Have you used a LiveView or SmartWatch or even a competitor product such as the Pebble? Has it become an indispensable part of your life or do you just prefer the simplicity of a normal watch? If it doesn’t attract to you, then what would you like to see in a Sony SmartWatch before you bite? We’d love to hear your thoughts below.
