Sony Smartwatch 3 now on sale in the Google Play store

Sony Smartwatch 3

Update: After first appearing in the Google Play store in October, the Sony Smartwatch 3 is now available for sale in the US - almost a full month later. There's still no word on when the rest of the world can expect to see it.

The latest Sony wearable will run you $250 (about £155, AU$285), and its Google Play listing says it will ship one to two business days after your order is placed.

Original story follows…

We still don't know when the Sony Smartwatch 3 will actually be released, but the Android Wear smartwatch has at least made its appearance in the Google Play store.

The Sony Smartwatch 3's listing notes that it's "coming soon," which is what we heard when the wearable was revealed in September.

But at least the listing revealed that the new Sony smartwatch will cost $250.

Trying new things

The Sony Smartwatch 3 marks Sony's first wearable that departs from the custom OS the company used on the Smartwatch 2 and the Sony SmartBand.

The new wearable has innards similar to other smartwatches, plus a GPS chip for using fitness apps without a smartphone connection.

No doubt Sony will let us know when it has more to share about the Smartwatch 3's release date.

In the meantime, there are plenty of other options available.
