    Smartband Talk Keeps Track of Calls, Life

    With its built-in microphone and speaker, SmartBand Talk comes with a short call function, so you can talk into it and hear your caller, with HD Voice support. A built-in accelerometer and altimeter sensor technology feels how you move, and how much, to provide an overview of your daily physical activity.
 

Sony's share of the smartphone market remains relatively small, compared with that of Apple or Samsung. Yet that hasn't stopped Sony from launching a steady stream of handsets with an impressive set of features and premium construction materials. At this week's IFA conference in Berlin, Sony added three smartphones and a tablet to its Xperia family, including the Z3 Tablet Compact tablet, Z3 and Z3 Compact smartphones, and the E3 smartphone. Sony focused not only on the in-house display, audio and gaming functions in each smartphone and tablet, but also on their dust-proof and waterproof capabilities, encouraging users to take their handsets poolside—or right into the water with them. Sony also unveiled its two latest smart technology devices; the SmartBand Talk is a so-called "lifelogger" that brings call-handling and voice control to your wrist, with an always-on curved 1.4-inch e-paper display. The SmartWatch 3 is the company's first smartwatch designed for the latest Android Wear updates. Android Wear organizes user information, suggests what he or she needs, and shows it to them. Here's a look at key features of Sony's new Xperia devices.
