sony wearables ifa 2014

Sony is one of the manufacturers that is going to unveil a handful of new devices next week at IFA 2014 in Berlin. The company has already teased a few of the devices that its going to launch. Others have been hinted at in rumors and various reports. A render has leaked online today which shows off Sony’s new wearable devices. Previous rumors have indicated that a new smartwatch is on the cards for IFA 2014.

We have already heard several rumors about the Sony SmartWatch 3. Apparently it is Sony’s Android Wear powered smartwatch that will be unveiled at IFA 2014. Reportedly it has a 1.68-inch display with a 320×320 pixel resolution. Sony’s mobile devices boast water resistant capabilities and it is said that the Sony SmartWatch 3 does have IP58 certification.

But it looks like the SmartWatch 3 isn’t the only wearable device that Sony will be unveiled. The render also depicts a new SmartBand Talk from the company which is an addition to its Sony SmartBand lineup. It is said to have a curved e-ink display with Bluetooth connectivity.

The word “Talk” in the moniker suggests that it might have something to do with calls as well, but since its primarily a fitness tracker, its possible that the SmartBand Talk might notify users when the paired smartphone gets a call.

Nevertheless Sony is yet to confirm any of this right now but fortunately IFA 2014 isn’t far away, so we’ll know for sure in a few days.
