Sony takes on Apple's Watch, says the SmartWatch 3 offers two-day battery life
The Apple Watch will be available to buy starting April 24. The cheapest models will cost $349, while the most expensive ones - Apple Watch Edition - will go up to $17,000 (yup, that's not a typo).
Mere hours after Apple announced that its Watch can offer "all-day battery" (which means 18 hours, not 24), Sony took to Twitter and Facebook to remind the world that its SmartWatch 3 features "two-day battery." The Japanese company used an image similar to Apple's to inform us about the long-lasting battery of the SmartWatch 3, clearly taking a jab at the Watch designed in Cupertino.
Running Android Wear, the Sony SmartWatch 3 is definitely a worthy alternative to the Apple Watch. It's currently available for as low as $249 in the US, and has a higher water-resistance rating than the Apple wearable device (IPx8 versus IPx7). Of course, choosing between the two ultimately comes down to personal preferences, and to what smartphone you're using the most.
