Sony Smartband 2 officially available

The fitness band was accidentally outed earlier this year

Sony’s fitness tracker the Smartband 2 is now official and is a nice upgrade to its last Smartband. Like the first one, it is compatible with both iOS and Android phones and features a heart rate monitor but eschews a screen.

Besides notifications, the Smartband 2 also has a smart alarm clock that tracks sleep patterns, waking up the user at optimal times, and will also function as a music remote. Sony says the device lasts up to two days on battery with just an hour of charging, besides also being waterproof.

It is currently available in black and white and is priced at US$132, with two other colours (pink and indigo) to be on sale later.
