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.

Wonderful, only not a word about battery life which is what normally kills the deal with this kind of gadgests.

Low usage 7 days*
Normal usage, 3-4 days*

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....
...where is SD card, headphone jack, nano SIM card for call redirection when i leave Z ULTRA at home for jogging....maybe next time....

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.

I'm waiting for the Samsung Galaxy Altius.

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...
