Sony has this morning announced that the long awaited stainless steel version of their Android Wear watch will arrive in Australia this month. First appearing in a leaked image back in October last year, the stainless steel version of the watch is aimed at a more premium market.
The more premium look also attracts a more premium price tag, with Sony Australia advising that the watch will retail at $399, $100 more than the standard Black (or now Lime) models of the smartwatch. Though the premium look is new, the stainless steel model is the same unit as the more sporty looking model underneath, with all the same functions.
The stainless steel SmartWatch 3 will arrive in in Sony Kiosks and Sony Centres today, while the stainless steel edition will be available to order from Sony online in mid-March. If you’ve been waiting for a premium looking Android Wear watch with GPS tracking capability then this is the one for you.
