Sony has revealed the SmartBand 2, a new version of its original fitness tracker that brings a much-needed heart rate monitor. However, Sony’s pitching the SmartBand 2 as a device you can wear all the time that gives you copious data about your life. After all, there are smartwatches that do the same functions for not much more, and better fitness trackers for less.
- While it lacks a screen, it can keep you abreast of your smartphone reminders via LED and vibration notifications.
- In fact, the new model looks much the same as the original and keeps the same raison d’etre: it tracks your fitness levels and nearly everything else you do using the Lifelog app.
- Sony has just announced its new fitness wearable, the SmartBand 2, which comes with a range of sensors that will apparently make it easier for us to keep an eye on our health.
