If you are in the market for an Android Wear device and none of the circular options strike your fancy, Sony’s SmartWatch 3 seems like a smart choice. Availability was hazy for a while, but this morning, Verizon began offering pre-orders with an estimated ship date of October 30.
The SmartWatch 3 got a shout-out from Google today for being the first Android Wear smartwatch with built-in GPS, which athletes who prefer to leave their smartphones at home during workouts will surely appreciate. It is otherwise comparable to other peripherals in its class, featuring a body rated IP68 and a 1.6″ 320 x 320 LCD display.
The SmartWatch 3 is $249.99, and will be available on Google Play soon.
