Gadget: Sony Smartwatch 3 Has Built-In GPS

BETTER, FASTER … SMARTER. The first two SmartWatch models from Sony were good, but not great. But, as the saying goes, third time’s a charm, and the new SmartWatch 3 counts among today’s best examples of wearable tech.


This time around, Sony has abandoned its own smartwatch OS and switched over to Android Wear, which has a much better track record. Another major selling point of the SmartWatch 3 is that it is the first model to feature a transflective screen that allows users to read the screen in almost any lighting condition without waking up the backlight. This is also the first ever smartwatch with a built-in GPS, making it the new definitive must-have gadget for joggers and runners everywhere.
