Sony's latest wearable is a classy square-faced watch

Sony's Wena Wrist range adds digital smarts to analogue style

Sony's approach to the smartwatch is to make really nice-looking analogue-style watches. Meet the Wena Wrist range, which just got a new style added to the mix.

Square is still hip

Currently the range includes a Chronograph models with three separate hands and dials, while the Three Hands version has a regular watch face with 42mm watchfaces. As for battery rating, the Three Hand is rated to run for three years, while the Chronograph runs for five. The band however, will need to be charged in about a week via a cradle.

New to the range is the Three Hands Square: it has a square body with a round face as well as 18mm, 20mm and 22mm lug options compared to the original's 22mm. It also has a leather strap option with one downside - it doesn't allow for the notification function that the steel band supports, though it still has NFC-enabled. The steel band can be purchased separately however.

As for pricing, the Three Hands Square head will cost ¥10380 (RM395), the steel band a whopping ¥33880 (RM1270) and the leather band at ¥8380 (RM320). The leather band however will only be sold in late December, while the steel band and the watch body will be selling later this month.

Currently a Japan exclusive, perhaps you can pick one up on your next trip there.
