On Thursday, Sony launched SmartBand 2, which could sensor the heart rate. Japanese firm said that it is a “multi-sensor life logger that provides full-scale insights about your fitness, well-being and stress levels.”

The SmartBand 2 is identical to the previous band and offers sleep and health tracking. The device has the ability to detect sleep and has a smart alarm clock that vibrates to wake the user up. It can also be paired up with a smartphone and gives notification alerts when there is a call, tweet, message, email and other notification. As there is no display, the wearer will be notified by vibration and pulsing RGB LED lights.
The data captured by the SmartBand 2 can be accessed by Sony Lifelog app, and the various activities such as how many staircases they have climbed, what places they have been visiting, how many steps they have taken, how they have been communicating with the world and what images they have clicked can be seen there. Whenever a user goes 10 meters away from the paired smartphone, it alerts the user.
Sony SmartBand 2 has a heart rate monitor, which gives an insight of user’s stress and health level. It is IP68-certified and despite of having a cap-less Micro-USB port, it is water-resistant up to 3-metre depth. The SmartBand 2 serves for 2 days on a single charge. It is Bluetooth-enabled and will be available in white and black color.
The device will be launched in September for around EUR 119. Sony SmartBand 2 is compatible with smartphones running iOS 8.2, Android 4.4 and higher versions. If you like the device, share your views by commenting below.
