Here are just a few of the ways in which Sony’s fitness tech is enhancing #TeamSony’s Tough Mudder training
The Xperia™ Z3+ is Sony’s brand-new flagship smartphone and makes for the perfect exercise companion – it has up to two days’ battery life*, so it will see you through many a training session, and it also has outstanding waterproof design** so there’s no problem if it starts chucking it down mid-run. It’s also slimmer and lighter than the Xperia Z3 – plus it has an improved wide-angle camera, making it easier to fit the whole team in for your post-race selfie.
Having said that, with the SmartWatch 3 you can have the freedom to leave your phone behind if that’s what you want to do. The SmartWatch 3’s standalone functionality means you still have all the features you need right on your wrist. It can play your music, help map your routes and track every detail of your workout. Apps designed specifically for it such as iFit let you see real-time stats as you’re creating them.
The SmartBand Talk, meanwhile, is equipped with a built-in accelerometer and an altimeter sensor to track how far you’ve run, while also measuring the steps you take and calories you burn to give you a broader picture of your activity levels throughout the day.
Holding SmartWear together is Sony’s Lifelog app, a hub for recording all your activities to analyse, compare with friends – or in #TeamSony’s case, teammates – and plan future sessions. There’s nothing better for helping you stick to a training plan than seeing your progress clearly marked out ahead of you.
Not only can Sony’s SmartWear help prepare you for Tough Mudder and its obstacles, it can also be a tool to help develop a fitter, healthier you.
