When Sony announced the long awaited Smartwatch 3, and it’s lower end non-Android Wear Smartband Talk fitness band were finally available in Australia last month, they made a surprise announcement that you’d be able to grab them from Telstra as well as from selected retailers. Initial, and subsequent checks with stores proved that despite the announcement, Telstra and their staff had no knowledge of the wearables. That’s now changed, with Telstra finally acknowledging the devices on their exchange blog.
The wearables are now available from Telstra stores, with Telstra recommending you ‘Check with your local Telstra store to find out about stock availability’. Telstra are also selling the ‘Smart’ Bluetooth sports headset, the Jabra Pulse, which includes an in-built heart rate monitor for $249.
