Announces upcoming range of SmartWear products to work alongside Sony Xperia smartphones
Sony Mobile has announced it will be launching a range of wearable technologies including the SmartBand, the first product in the family, at CES this week.
Outlining its new SmartWear Experience vision at the show, Sony Mobile announced an upcoming range of SmartWear products to work alongside Sony Xperia smartphones, and a new Lifelog application.
The first product in the range will be 'SmartBand', which lets consumers log daily activities that are represented visually in Sony's Lifelog application.
Using open software and hardware, Sony is forging new in-market partnerships to offer consumers more choice and continually develop the SmartWear Experience.
'Users can reminisce about the past, make the best of the present and plan for the future,' said Kunimasa Suzuki, corporate executive officer, EVP, and president and CEO of Sony Mobile Communications. 'The SmartWear Experience shows that life is more than the number of steps you take; it's about emotion as well as motion, entertainment and information, how you feel, as well as what you do. It's about moving, and most important, being moved.'
Also featuring at CES are an array of Sony mobile innovations that build on the success of its flagship Xperia Z smartphone. The Xperia Z1 will now be available in the US, in association with Sony's partner T-Mobile.
A new addition to the Xperia series is the Xperia Z1s, which features Sony's camera technologies found in the Xperia Z1 including G Lens, Exmor RS for mobile and BIONZ for mobile.
The Xperia Z1s smartphone gives consumers new ways to enjoy their smartphone camera, with new Social Camera applications including the newly added Background Defocus to give photos an added creative edge. This is the first smartphone to come with the new PlayStation App pre-loaded for remote and second-screen PS4 gaming experiences.
For a smaller size option, Sony's new Xperia Z1 Compact model brings all the features and technology of the Z1 into a convenient palm size, available in four expressive colors with a family of more than 130 innovative NFC-enabled accessories.
