Product details
The Sony SWR10 SmartBand is a 24/7 wearable device. It's waterproof and you can keep it on you whatever you do. It's discreet and designed to look great with any clothing style. An iconic metal Sony fastening button and LEDs give it a premium look and feel. The SmartBand also incorporates a removable core unit and a stylish and comfortable wrist band.

What makes the SmartBand smart is an innovative Android smartphone app that automatically records your physical, social and entertainment activities. For any given day, you can see how active you were and how you have been communicating with your world. The wearable technology and innovative life logging app will also help you set activity goals and monitor your progress. Lifelog even lets you know what the weather is going to be like tomorrow.

By tracking body movements, the SmartBand will wake you up at the best time based on your sleep cycle. It calculates and measures the best time to wake you up and gently vibrates to bring you out of sleep.

SmartBand is in constant contact with your smartphone via Bluetooth. A vibrating alert lets you know if a call, message or other notification comes in. When you're enjoying your music on the move you can play, pause and skip tracks using the SmartBand. Connecting is easy using NFC or a standard Bluetooth connecting procedure. Even when you're out of range of your smartphone, this wearable technology saves information about what you do and automatically passes it on when you re-connect. Keep track of your lifestyle and see how you live with Lifelog.

Compatible with Sony Xperia Z Series Phones and Tablets plus LG Nexus 4 & 5, Samsung Note 3, Galaxy S4 & S5 and the HTC One & One M8.

Have you used this website before? the reviews on trustpilot are pretty mixed. The band its self has some mixed reviews, I think I'll give it a go though, I only really want it for the smart alarm and I'm not to bothered about the inaccuracy of the step counter.

Buy it with a credit card, that way you are covered no matter what...

No mention of this working with the iPhone, does anyone know if it is compatible ... don't intending buying an Apple iWatch !!

£3 more on Amazon if you are that worried:

Used Mobymemory several times, never had an issue. AFAIK this is android only.

I'd be interested to know if this works with S Health and what the accuracy is like. Thanks for any info/advice on that or any similar priced alternatives.

ok, but... seriously, don't expect to have it for very long, they come off easily, i lost mine within a couple weeks.

I have one of these. No it does not work with iPhone, only android and the health data only goes to the Sony Lifelog app.

To be honest the step counter apps work just as well if not better as they track cycling too.

I still use mine, but only for notifications, you can set it up so that when certain apps get a notification it vibrates. Also the alarm vibrating on your wrist is pretty good, you can push the button on it to sleep the alarm.

I got mine free with the phone, not sure I'd pay £25 for it.

Get xiaomi mi band. Much better and cheaper in price. Remember to install English notify version.

+1 for the Xiaomi Mi Fit band being cheaper. Can't comment on it being "better" or not as I'm not familiar with the Sony band, but the Mi Fit band does a similar thing from the sound of it. To track my "cycling steps" I attach it to my left shoe so it at least registers some activity. Normally I keep the band in my trouser pocket as movement from typing leads to inaccuracies with any band's results. As I work in a sedentary job, I wanted to see exactly how little exercise I did and for this purpose, the Mi Fit band [other bands are available] highlighted this perfectly. My job means I have a leaden butt and I now proactively do more exercise in the evenings. On that basis, any band will help you if you just need a little prod in the right direction.

in what way are you covered no matter what?

I have got the XiaoMi Fit band as well, it is about half the price of this one and I think does pretty much the same thing. Which I think it is much better for beginners or people don't only want to give it a try, much less investment. I mean even if you don't like it, you won't have to feel guilty leaving it in your draw or give it away

The step tracking is pretty good in most cases, and the sleep tracking is even more accurate. I have fairly strange sleeping patterns, but it was able to pick up everything fine. I don't look anything more than the length of my sleep and how many hours of deep sleep I got. I mean the features are there, the companion app shows you a break down, which might be useful for some. One of the best features in my opinion is the vibration when you get a call, there's been countless number of times when I missed a call because I am walking or the environment is noisy. The last feature I want to mention is the smart unlock on Android 5.0+. For those who don't know much about it, it basically lets you set up a password for your phone and when your band is in range it doesn't ask you to type it in (so you don't need to type your password every time you want to check something). But when you are out of range or lose your phone, other people can't just go into your phone and look at your personal data because they will need a password to unlock it.

+1 for Mi Band here too.. mine cost £10.78

don't forget battery life too, mine is only down to 21% after 51 days since the first charge

+1 for mi band. Sleep tracking is spot on, but not sure on the stepometer, seems to over count quite a lot

A band that tells me when it thinks I should get up oO I know when I have to get up its when I have to goto work

I lost mine,they get loose at fastening after a few months,.

I bought a XiaoMi band the other week and it won't pair with either mine or my partner's (different model) phone. The app also took a day to log in. Yes it was cheap but there doesn't appear to be any support, not in English anyway. Unless someone knows something I don't..

@Sven2400 there's a forum for it
en.miui.com/for…tml
tells you pretty much all you need to know

Had mine for almost a year, hasn't accidentally came off my wrist once.

I use mine mainly for the vibrate/LED notification which is brilliant if you spend time in places with your mobile on silent or in loud places where you won't always hear your mobile.

The other great use is for the Smart Lock function in Android. The lock screen can be disabled when the Smart Band and mobile are within Bluetooth range of each other. Great for saving you typing in your password or pin number every time you want to use your mobile, but still keeping your phone secure when you and your phone are out of range of each other.

I barely use the calorie/sleep/step etc counter anymore, but it does its job pretty well.

Definitely worth £25 and you can buy different colour replacement bands from eBay for a few quid if you want.

I don't tend to use the step counter functions anyway (any motion similar to a step triggers these and I can ride my bike 50 miles still to be told I haven't exercised enough!) and like many others pointed out for me it's more about notifications, silent alarms and sleep tracking. I have the Fitbit Charge HR which does most of that and heart rate, of course, which is also useful.

Why do people buy these

to occupy their mind from wandering

If the Xiaomi is much better, where to buy it? Also, will it work with Windows Phone?

Hi Sven, what version of Android are you using? I think it only works with v4.4 and above.

Hi... Thanks for replying. Its the latest version.. v5 I think. It won't pair on my partner's phone either, also v5, but when you do a general Bluetooth search on the phone it is there so I don't know. But luckily it wasn't mega expensive...
