While the smartphone and tablet market keeps growing at a premium in India, it seems like another such lucrative market in the same sphere is slowly making its way. We are talking, of course, about the smartband (or the smartwatch) market.
There are already a number of big name smartphone makers in the market who have jumped onto the smartband bandwagon. And while big names like Samsung and Sony are already bringing out their own versions of smartwatches, other new names are also coming forward with their own offerings.
But while we hold on to our seats with new smartbands still coming into the market, a special mention needs to be made related to the new SmartBand SWR10 that has arrived from Sony.
Sony has already launched its new fitness-centric, wearable SmartBand SWR10 with Sony Xperia Z2. The new smartband, which is priced at 5,990, comes with a solitary button which has a host of uses: from powering on to shifting modes and even creating bookmarks.
The device core has three small LED lights on it that shine through the band to show you which mode it is currently in. And while the device isn't limited for use only with Sony phones, it still requires the latest Android KitKat version 4.4 to support other devices. The device also supports Bluetooth LE and NFC technology as well.
The new SmartBand SWR10, as expected with most new age devices, is IP58-certified. This means that it can withstand submersion up to up to 5-feet of water for up to 30 minutes. It can also be survive a regular 10-minute rain as well.
But these are just the numbers and specs we are talking about. And we are pretty sure that the new smartband has more under the hoods than it meets the eye. We are talking, of course, about the built in features. Here are the top 5.
