Sony Smartband SWR10

Despite what the product name may have you believe, the Sony SmartBand is not meant to be a smart personal assistant. It’s an unobtrusive device with exchangeable wrist bands to match your style and blend seamlessly with any other accessories you might have.

They come duly accessorized as manufacturers try to maximize their appeal and, in most cases, that goes well beyond the fashion statement.
