Sony Mobile Offer for Vodafone Customers

Smartband and Lifelong Available on Upgrades throughout August


140816_Sony_SmartBand.pngSony Mobile has announced an exclusive offer with Vodafone for the month of August. Customers can now experience Sony's SmartBand SWR10 and Lifelog application for the discounted price of €49.99 with purchases of Sony's leading Xperia Z2 or Z1 Compact smartphones.


Available in a variety of vibrant colour styles, the SmartWear Experience is a new user experience that makes life more fun and entertaining. It is built around three key pillars - "Lifelogging", "Wearing Smart" and "Life tools".



Russell Keating, Senior National Account and Marketing Manager, Sony Mobile Communications Ireland, said: "As people are out and about over the summer holidays we were delighted to work with Vodafone to offer this exclusive SmartWear Experience that represents emotion as well as motion - moving, and being moved. SmartBand and its innovative core extend beyond fitness tracking, to add colourful, fun entertainment experiences to users' lives."



Lifelog application - Communication and entertainment, staying on top of the things that matter to you

Sony's innovative new Lifelog application binds the SmartWear Experience together, enabling you to discover your past, enjoy your present and helping inspire your future. Together with SmartBand, the Android app enables you to effortlessly capture life and entertainment - places visited, music listened to, games played, books read - and presents it a beautifully visual interface.


You can see how active you were, where you went, what pictures you took and how you have been communicating with your world. Lifelog will also help you set activity goals, monitor your progress and make recommendations to help inform future decisions.


Connection to SmartBand and the core is effortless - a simple "one-touch" to pair via NFC or Bluetooth®, the sign-in using a Sony Entertainment Network account1.



Flexible style - Technology you can wear your way, and use your way too

SmartBand's core module is a 24/7 wearable device; fully waterproof (rated IP58*) despite its exposed Micro-USB port. It's light, unobtrusive and the independent core means it can be carried or worn as you wish, to fit your lifestyle.

Life tools - Smart, subtle, intuitive notifications


The wearable technology in SmartBand SWR10 talks to Lifelog app and your Android smartphone via Bluetooth® and NFC. When out of range (up to 10m) from the smartphone, a vibrating alert will prompt you to let you know. SmartBand will also measure your sleep cycle, to wake up you at the optimum time. And, once calls, messages, Likes or tweets are received, SmartBand will vibrate to notify.


It can also be used to play, pause and skip tracks in WALKMAN app by pressing the button, and tapping the band.



Open hardware and software ecosystem - matching external creativity with in-house prowess

SmartWear Experience is built on open principles and Sony is engaging with creatives from across the fashion, design and developer spectrum to broaden the range of experiences and offer consumers more choice - more details will follow in the coming months.


The offer is available to Vodafone customers directly or through Carphonewarehouse stores. Z1 compact is Free on Red Essentials Tariff and is €349.00 Pay As You Go. The Z2 is FREE on Red Tariffs and €629.99 Pay As You Go.



* In compliance with IP55 and IP58, core is protected against the ingress of dust and is waterproof. It is protected against low pressure jets of water from all practicable directions in compliance with IP55; and/or (ii) can be kept under 3.00 meters of freshwater for up to 30 minutes in compliance with IP58.
