The SmartBand is Sony's purpose-designed companion wearable for the Android flagship lineup of devices. We find out if it truly enhances the overall Xperia experience.
PROS
Quick and easy setup; High level of activity tracking accuracy; Fantastic Lifelog app
CONS
Heavily dependent on smart device interface to work; Attracts a fair amount of dust
VERDICT
The Sony SmartBand is not a fitness wearable in the truest sense of the word, instead its best described and utilised as a smart device companion and low-level activity tracker. From this standpoint, the SmartBand performs extremely well and helps in further extending the Android smartphone user's experience. Compared to other activity trackers, the Sony SmartBand is one of the best we've tested to date.
