Smart bracelets are becoming more and more useful accessories. With increasingly expensive smart watches, and without new functions, and bracelets with new components, it is logical that they are starting to be better options. The Sony Smartband 2 is one of those options. As a novelty, it includes a heart rate monitor, and is now available in Spain.
A smart bracelet
Until now, the bracelets that we call smart have mainly relied on a pedometer to count the steps and calories we spend, and the possibility of monitoring sleep. Bracelets of this type have come in a wide price range, even exceeding 100 euros. However, the arrival of the Xiaomi Mi Band changed everything, with a price slightly higher than 10 euros. This has led to smart bracelet manufacturers having to integrate more functions if they wanted to compete with the Xiaomi bracelet, and this is how the Sony Smartband 2 arrives, a bracelet whose main differentiating feature is the heart rate monitor with which account, or heart rate monitor.
Apart from this, it has almost all the features of the previous Sony Smartband. It does not have a screen, but only with some LEDs with which we can see notifications of the notifications we receive on the mobile. As is logical, it is a waterproof and submersible bracelet, up to three meters deep, so we can use it without problems even if we go swimming.
It is already available in Spain with a price of 120 euros. It is a relatively high price for the bracelet, but it has a heart rate monitor, something that does not have, for example, the Sony Smartband Talk, supposedly more complete, with a screen, and that we can use as a microphone and headset of the smartphone itself , but it does not have a heart rate monitor, so its price is 160 euros, with the Sony SmartWatch 2 at 230 euros, although for much less if we buy it on Amazon, where you can buy it for 160 euros.
