After unveiling their new Sony Smartband during this years CES 2014 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas during January, Sony has this week announced at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) exhibition in Barcelona that their new Sony Smartband will be available to purchase from stores worldwide from next month.

“Sony’s innovative new Lifelog application binds the SmartWear Experience together, enabling you to discover your past, enjoy your present and helping inspire your future. Together with SmartBand, the Android app enables you to effortlessly capture life and entertainment – places visited, music listened to, games played, books read – and presents it a beautifully visual interface.”
The Sony Smartband will be available in a range of colours and its strap is finished with a subtle texture and a circular metal clasp. Whilst wearing the Sony Smartband users can also use it to control music playback by skipping, pausing or playing tracks that are stored on the connected Android smartphone.
