Sony launches new Wena watch accessories
Sony might not launch a new Android Wear-driven smartwatch anytime soon, but the Japanese brand has just unveiled a new set of smart accessories for the Wena wearable. This is quite a shady product since it surfaced back in late 2015 as a crowdfunded premium smartwatch and then it disappeared, but it seems that some eventually reached the Japanese market.
Sony Wena now combines an analog smartwatch module and a smart strap. The strap can track activities and deliver notifications thanks to a LED integrated into the bracelet. The Wena Wrist Leather comes with a smart module in the band that can provide electronic payment capabilities, but it will only hit the market in December, reveals Sony.
Those in a hurry can get the Wena Wrist stainless steel band in just a few days. This accessory also comes with electronic payment features, as well as smartphone notifications and fitness tracking. Sadly, it seems like both the Wena Wrist Leather and the Wena Wrist need a time piece to be added. The good part is that non-Sony watches might be compatible as well.
Since Sony has no English language press release about the Wena watch and accessories, it is very likely never to see them reaching other markets, unfortunately.
