my watch is better and cheaper than all smart watches. Last time i replace its battery was 2 years ago.
Yes, I would buy something like this.
Not a smartwatch fan but i they do a great watch which hapens to be also a smartwatch, I will buy one.
Yap it seems strange and I don't know the reason why sony made it first for iOS where is a known manufacturer of android phones and series of smart watches. But it seems they wanna make a beta out of an iOS...
That is classy!
I just hope they make it in standard size and also sell the chain-strap separately so that it could be mixed matched with existing watches!

The attachment type seems VERY much like standard, so if the dimensions are standard too this could be a matter of launching it including a watch at first and as a bracelet second.

Strange hybrid if you ask me. But for those that wants a classical mechanical watch and the smartband functionalities it sounds like a nice compromise, so they do not need two devices.
BUT: Why not make it as a standard module wristband, so the user could attach it to 'almost any' watch-case of their liking? Of course it would require a 'sporty' watch-case not to have the band look too clumsy, but there are a lot of those around in all kind of price ranges.
I must say though, that the concept is absolutely stunning. Wel done Sony! Hope it works out for them.
