The Sony Smart Band is a life-logging accessory with motion tracking, vibration notifications and music remote. It's waterproof so you can wear it all day, every day and it's designed to not only relay all of the notifications coming in through your smartphone, but it will keep track of special moments, personal achievements and more. It's really up to you. Track what you want to track and log what you want to log. The possibilities are countless.
Lifelog collects data from your SmartBand and smartphone to tell a broader story of what happens in your life - fitness, location, weather, photos, music, personal notes (life bookmarks) and more. Lifelog displays the information in a colorful, versatile interface that helps you reminisce on the past, reflect on what you did today, and set goals for the future.
In addition to tracking your walking, running, and sleep motion activity, the SmartBand also works as a useful, unobtrusive extension of your smartphone. Functions include music player remote control, smart alarm, out-of-range alert, and vibration notifications for incoming calls and messages, calendar events, and more.
Life Journey, Dashboard and Map View
Lifelog's home screen is divided into two sections: life journey and dashboard. Life journey depicts a timeline animation of your motion activities captured by the SmartBand, e.g., standing, walking, running or sleeping. The timeline also shows the prevailing weather conditions and "app bubbles" of activities captured from the smartphone. Tap an app bubble to see more information, for example, the photos you took at the time. In contrast, Lifelog's dashboard consists of activity tiles, each showing the tracking total of a specific activity for the selected date. The color shades in a tile show your progress toward a goal (if a daily goal has been set). Tap a tile to view activity details by day, month, or year, and to set goals.
Tap the map icon to see current location or where you've been. You can adjust location tracking for battery-saving mode or higher accuracy.
The SmartBand communicates with your smartphone via Bluetooth® and pairing and connecting is easy using NFC or standard Bluetooth® setup. When you are away from your smartphone, your SmartBand saves your motion tracking data and passes it on when you reconnect. You can go for a run and the SmartBand will update your performance to Lifelog when you’re back with your smartphone.
When a call, message, calendar appointment or other notification comes in, your SmartBand vibrates quietly on your wrist to let you know. The SmartBand can also help keep you from leaving your smartphone behind, with a distinct vibration pattern to alert you when the devices start to get out of range from each other. LED indicators light up to let you know when your SmartBand is active, charging, and whether it is in day mode or night mode.
Wear it 24/7
The SmartBand consists of a removable core housed within an adjustable wristband. It is waterproof, comfortable, and designed to look great with any clothing style. In addition to the included black wristbands, you can choose from a vibrant range of optional wristband colors to suit your style. You could even wear a different color for each day.*
Catch that special moment with a double press on the SmartBand key to capture what's happening with a life bookmark in Lifelog. On your smartphone, you can go back and tap the bookmark to write a note to yourself about just what made the moment worth remembering.
With the SmartBand, you can control the music player on your smartphone. Just press the SmartBand's power button and then tap the Smartband: 1x to pause/play, 2x to skip forward and 3x to skip back.
Night Mode, Sleep Tracking and Smart Alarm
In night mode, your SmartBand shuts off notifications, so you can sleep without interruption, while continuing to track your motion as you sleep. In Lifelog, see how much you slept and the percentages of light versus deep sleep. The SmartBand's smart alarm can wake you up at a preferable time during a sleep cycle, when you are sleeping more lightly. A quiet, gentle vibration will get you going without waking up the whole family.
