Sony Mobile Communications New Zealand can today confirm the local availability of SmartBand SWR10 through Sony online and Sony stores with availability through other major retailers to be confirmed soon. Sony’s SmartWear experience combines the SmartBand and Lifelog to let you effortlessly capture experiences from life – places visited, music listened to, games played, books read – and present it in a beautifully visual interface on your mobile device.

Sony customers can purchase the SmartBand through Sony stores for $169.95 RRP, with online availability through Sony online (sony.co.nz) to follow shortly.

The SmartBand is an innovative life logging wrist band that lets people keep track of everything including walking, running and counting calories. It is a 24/7 wearable device with a completely waterproof core, meaning users can wear it in all conditions. Customers can also be alerted to calls, messages and other notifications through a vibrating alert. When enjoying music on the move people can play, pause and skip tracks using the SmartBand. Additional software updates will be available in the coming weeks for the Lifelog application allowing users to log routes and times for driving, cycling and train trips.

“SmartBand and its innovative core are extending beyond fitness tracking, to add colourful, fun entertainment experiences to users’ lives,” said John Featherstone, Managing Director, Sony Mobile Communications Oceania. “Users can now simply log special moments and watch your life played back to you on your Sony smartphone or Android device just by wearing it wherever they go.”

Does it track heart rate? If not, I'll keep my Jawbone UP24.

The only reason I'm interested is the notifications.

Kinda stuck between the Fitbit Flex and the Sony but I'm interested to hear what makes the UP stand out for you?

Got my Fitbit Flex from Amazon (Geekzone aff link) when we had free postage to New Zealand. Even with postage it is still $30 cheaper than local retail. Parents-in-law so impressed we ordered another two Flex for them last month and the Fitibit Aria WiFi scales should be landing here soon as well.

Fitibit is reported to now account for 50% of the wearable segment.
