IFA 2014 is right around the corner and we’re expecting to see quite a bit of tech launched during the show. Sony is in attendance this year and their official press event is scheduled to happen on on Sept. 4th, 2014. Sources familiar with Sony’s plans have informed us that we can expect two new wearables to launch next week at IFA 2014. Sony is finishing off the year with a handful of new products, but it doesn’t end with wearables. According to sources, the company will also be announcing three new smartphones and a waterproof tablet as well. Stay tuned for our full coverage of IFA 2014.
Sony upcoming keynote at the IFA is scheduled for September 4th. Along with the 5.15-inch Xperia Z3, Sony is rumoured to continue progressing along the wearable path with a new smartwatch and fitness tracker. Leaked online are a couple new products that Sony will reportedly unveil. The SmartWatch 3, which is a following to the SmartWatch and SmartWatch 2, will run Android Wear, sport a 1.68-inch 320 x 320 display and IP58 certified dust and water resistant. While the image is not the clearest, the overall design seems to be constructed in one piece and looks to be plastic. As for sensors, the display reveals it might feature a heart rate monitor. In addition, Sony will come to market with another fitness tracker called the “SmartBand Talk.” The details are sparse, but it’ll have a curved e-ink display and Bluetooth connectivity. No word if the SmartBand Talk will be detachable like the original SmartBand, or if Sony will add in a display.
