A look at Sony’s new SmartWear fitness tracker from CES 2013

 
Yesterday at CES 2014, Sony introduced the company’s new SmartWear fitness tracker. Partnering with an Android app customers will be able to track their, “physical, social and entertainment activities.”
 
Sony-Smartwear-InsertAs Sony stated you will be able to, “Log your day. Every day,” using the new Lifelog app to see if you’ve been walking, running, cycling or, “traveling by train – and how you’ve slept.” The device will also help you track and organize, “the photos you’ve taken, music you’ve listened to, games you’ve played and how much you’ve socialized with a friend.”
 
The device also allows users to set daily goals and challenge your all-time bests. Sony also stated that the device will allow anyone to “Look ahead in time to see just how much more you need to cycle to achieve your daily activity goal. If the weather’s turning bad, you’ll know – so you can make sure you get home in time.”
 
Using the Life bookmarks setting, you’ll never forget a special moment. “A great restaurant. An amazing song. A beautiful sunset. Press the Life Bookmark key on your SmartBand and everything going on at that moment will be caught and remembered forever,” promises Sony.
 
The waterproof band comes in a wide-array of colors, and boasts a battery-life of up 5 days. As for your smartphone integration Sony states, “When a call, message or other notification comes in, the SmartBand will vibrate gently on your wrist to let you know. It also has LED indicators that light up to show that the SmartBand is active. When you’re enjoying your music on the move you can play, pause and skip tracks using your SmartBand.”
