The Design

Measuring 40.7 x 15.3 x 9.5 millimetres, Sony SmartBand 2 is attractively designed with quality silicone and weighs 25 grams. It should feel comfortable on your wrist all day long.

The core of the tracker can be popped out of its colourful silicone strap to allow you select another colour that matches your mood or dress style. The interchangeable straps come in white, pink, black or indigo.

Fitness and Heart-Rate Tracking

Sony SmartBand 2 does just what you would expect a fitness tracker to do – it monitors your movements and activities. With the aid of inbuilt sensors, it tracks everything you do, be it walking, running, swimming and even your sleep.

The integrated heart-rate monitor measures your pulse and stress levels in the course of your daily activities, based on heart rate variability (HRV). This helps to determine what activities raise your heart rate and the ones that return it to normal level, thus giving you insights into those things that could cause you health issues.
