Sony Smartwatch 3

Today at Sony's "Demand Great" event in NYC the electronics giant announced a partnership with Verizon to sell the Sony SmartWatch 3 in the U.S. starting this month. It comes alongside the announcement that the Xperia Z3v, a Verizon-exclusive version of the Z3, will be coming to the carrier at the end of the month as well.

Sony isn't ready to tell us specific availability, but knowing that the SmartWatch 3 is coming to the U.S. via a major retail presence like Verizon is a great thing to hear. The SmartWatch 3 will be Sony's first Android Wear watch, breaking the mold from its previous two models.
