Sony announced the Reon Pocket 2, a wearable air conditioner that can cool or warm the surface of the part in contact with the body by operating it with a smartphone app.

The Reon Pocket 2 looks somewhat similar to the original Reon Pocket-it launched last year after being funded collectively via the company's platform.

  • But the newly designed interior can achieve up to twice the heat absorption level, resulting in a more robust cooling performance, despite its smaller size and lightweight.

  • In addition, stainless steel, which has high strength and facilitates cold transfer, is used for cold and hot parts that come into contact with the surface of the body.

  • Sony says it improved sweat resistance in the second generation of the product, making it more suitable for light exercise situations.

  • The previous model was mostly marketed as a wearable thing with a special undershirt to make summer commuting more bearable, but Sony emphasizes more diverse use cases, particularly golf, outdoor activities, and business.

  • The company has partnered with sportswear brands, including Le Coq Sportif, Munsingwear, and Descente, to produce a range of golf wear that has device pockets.

  • Sony has also designed a neckband attachment so that the Reon Pocket 2 can be used with regular clothing after you previously had to purchase a set of Sony's pocket-sized undershirts.

  • The device uses thermoelectric cooling technology, and it connects to a smart application via a mobile phone through Bluetooth to operate instant cooling or heating, thus lowering or raising the temperature, as the device can absorb or generate heat.

  • The Reon Pocket 2 was launched today in Japan for 14,850 yen (about $ 138), and there is no information on its release elsewhere.
