CES 2015: Sony SmartWatch 3 gets a stainless steel variant, and interchangeable bands

Sony has not announced any new smartphone during the CES 2015, but it has unveiled a new stainless steel variant of its existing Android Wear-based smartwatch, the Sony SmartWatch 3. There is no change in the actual hardware of the Sony SmartWatch 3, though its water-resistance rating has been dropped from IP68 to IP58 for the stainless steel variant.

During the original release of the Sony SmartWatch 3, it was available only in plastic material, without any support for changing the bands. However, Sony has also announced yesterday that the SmartWatch 3 would support interchangeable bands. If you already own a SmartWatch 3, Sony will also be selling a replacement shell, which will allow you to connect any 24mm watch strap of your choice.
