But that was it. This is something that even $13 priced Xiaomi Mi Band is doing for you now.
With the next-gen Sony wearable, some more standalone features are rumored, something like video calling as Apple Watch 2 is promising us. Additionally, the prospects of having contactless NFC payment and standalone WiFi connectivity won’t hurt.
The watch is expected to come packed with a more accurate and efficient GPS. Users of the Smartwatch 3 had noticed how the GPS tends to differ from what the smartphones seems to indicate.

A built-in speaker is on the table. Google has recently added support for audio feedback in Android Wear v1.4. This means that wearables can now speak or at least make some noise. It’ll be cool if users could directly take calls from their wrists. So far only Huawei Watch has got built-in speakers.
