Now in stock at the Google Play Store, is the Sony SmartWatch 3. Orders for the Android Wear powered timepiece will leave the warehouse in 1-2 business days. Besides the Play Store, the Sony SmartWatch 3 is also available via Verizon. The Sony SmartWatch 3 pairs with a smartphone to bring you notifications on calls or texts. With your phone or tablet, it can play music via the Walkman player app.

The Sony SmartWatch 3 is priced at $249. It is equipped with a 1.6 inch screen with resolution of 320 x 320. A quad-core 1.2GHz processor powers the watch, which has 512MB of RAM and 4GB of native storage.

It is the only Android Wear smartwatch that has its own built-in GPS.

Hopefully Sony will activate the Wi-Fi on this watch soon. The prospect of a standalone watch for work where I don't need to lug around my smartphone is interesting to me.

Then the Gear S will interest you.

I like the Gear S. A very nice smartwatch, especially for the price. It really is the first standalone smartwatch with a nice screen that I aware of.

However, having to deal with Tizen is a mixed bag. Ideally, I'd like Android Wear to be open and flexible like Android itself is. Alas, that day is not today. So the SW3 is one compromise (small screen, Android Wear) and the Gear S is another (large screen, Tizen).

Two things were not posted. This smart watch also has NFC, and with the latest update to Android Wear you can now store and play music directly from the smart watch. You don't need your smart phone or tablet around.
