The Sony SmartWatch 3 might not be the best-looking Android Wear device so far – that honour belongs to the LG G Watch R – but it’s by far the most useful. Its design may be pretty uninspiring and the display is fairly mediocre but the functionality afforded by the GPS is unrivalled in the Google smartwatch arena and the battery life is far better than we’ve seen on any of the Sony’s rivals. Let’s just hope that app developers spruce up their offerings soon to make the most of the SmartWatch 3’s USP.

It's a powerful and well-equipped wearable with a good screen and reasonable battery life. If it could do all that while looking like an actual wristwatch it would be a real winner.

Android Wear feels like it's nowhere near its full potential and that the only thing holding it back is Google. You could say there's a kind of courage in doggedly sticking with simplicity, in refusing to rush out functionality that would give it feature parity with the as-yet unreleased Apple Watch. I'd love to know if the developers inside Google are standing on that principle or just waiting to see how people react to what Apple has made. In the meantime, we have unassuming watches like Sony's SmartWatch 3. Even if you're part of the tiny sliver of users to whom it's designed to appeal, you have to admit that there's nothing really special about it.

Sony’s first Android Wear watch is a big improvement on previous smartwatch attempts, but it’s still flawed and doesn’t get the best out of its most unique features.
