Sony SmartWatch 3 review: dull design, but great for runners

Sony's latest smartwatch won't be for everyone, what with its dull design and muted screen. Still, this is currently the only Android Wear device with a built-in GPS radio, making it a smart choice for runners and other athletes interested in tracking their pace and distance.

Pros
  • Built-in GPS is ideal for runners and other athletes
  • WiFi and NFC make this more future-proof than other Android Wear devices
  • Relatively long battery life
  • Display is easy to read in direct sunlight
Cons
  • Drab design
  • Screen isn't as vibrant as on some other smartwatches
  • Not many Android Wear apps currently make use of the GPS, WiFi or NFC
