Looks elegant, but if you look at the specification it states:

NOT suitable for showering, bathing, swimming, diving, snorkeling, water related work and fishing.

So, the title should be changed to splash resistant not water resistant.

It's a warning to those who are fool thinking that gadgets are like toys that you can leave anywhere..

I using the current version, the battery life is 2 to 3 days. Very useful for me as i pair it with my galaxy tab 7.7. The only negative is that the strap break quite easy but they include an adapter so i could buy my own 20mm leather wrist straps.

ANT+ support would made this perfect companion...pity that SONY quit to support ANT+ as quick as they started with 2011 devices....

z ultra has its accompanying bluetooth headset that has FM radio. you can use that. or just grab those water resistant earphones from sony with mp3 player. they cost around $50 only.

First of all I LOVE IT. but it has some shortages such as bluetooth 3 and not bluetooth 4. low battery life compared to its rivals out there, no native google now support, no heart rate measurement or what so ever, no light sensor...
