CES 2014: Sony Launches ‘Core’ SmartBand
Sony unveiled a new wearable device: a fitness tracker called ‘Core’ SmartBand that offers life empowerment by logging daily activities.
At the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Sony Mobile CEO Kunimasa Suzuki unveiled a new SmartBand, which has an activity tracker called the Core at its heart.
Sony’s Core tracks everything from daily physical activities and nightly sleep patterns to how much you’ve socialized with friends.
It possibly the smallest device Sony has ever made.
The band has no display and interacts wirelessly with an Android smartphone or tablet through an app called Lifelog.
It keeps a daily history of activities and recommends actions for the future.
SmartBand also notifies its user of incoming calls and messages by vibrating. Users listening to music can use it to play, pause or skip tracks.
‘Core’ SmartBand is waterproof and only needs recharging once every five days.
The Core is detachable and can be worn in several ways other than with the wristband.
Sony stated SmartBand will be available this spring, but no pricing was announced.
