We saw the Sony SmartWatch 3 and the SmartBand Talk last year at the Internationale Funkausstellung Berlin (IFA) 2014. There was no confirmation, nor pricing for India back then. Sony has now released these devices on their Indian website for ₹12,990 (~$210) for SmartBand Talk and ₹19,990 (~$325) for the SmartWatch 3. Both the devices are only available in black color. We saw the SmartWatch 3 Steel early this month at CES 2015 but, in India, there is word about its launch yet. The Sony Smart Watch 3 will be the third android wear watch to be officially launched in India. This watch will be the most expensive one amongst them. Its competitors LG G Watch (₹14,990) and Samsung Gear Live (₹15,900) offer much more for a cheaper price. These are just the MRPs so we can expect to get it for cheaper on an e-commerce website.

There’s no word on what e-commerce retailers will be offering the devices, but word on that should be out sooner rather than later. Unlike LG G Watch and the Samsung Gear Live the Sony SmartWatch 3 is not available on Play Store either. With the release of these two devices, the Sony’s lineup of wearables for 2015 is huge in India. They now have SmartBand Wrist Strap, SmartBand, SmartBand Talk and the SmartWatch 3.
