    First, let me state this: Yes, it's flawed. Not 'oh there are a few minor things' but 'What on earth were they thinking, this is stupid' flaws. There are plenty of write-ups stating what these flaws are elsewhere, so I won't go into detail (strap obscures charging port, much too difficult to disconnect strap, constantly loses connection to phone).

    Now: the heart of the review. Firstly, its cheap. Really cheap. It's flawed, that's why its cheap, and yes if I'd paid full launch price I'd be mightily annoyed. But I didn't, and I'm not.
    This thing cost less than 1/4 of the original launch price, and it's worth every penny. Why? because it's fun! It's fun to use, fun to configure, and (if you're a bit odd like me) fun to troubleshoot. Most of the issues can be overcome with a few hours tinkering. The strap is very hard to remove (which you need to do to charge it) and other reviewers have complained about broken nails. A cheap stamped metal teaspoon makes an ideal lever to pry it out. It disconnects frequently. Yes, ish. If you keep it busy (actually communicating with the phone) then it won't disconnect unless you go out of range. I can listen to music on my commute using it as a media control, one of it's built in functions, and it stays connected for an hour. Why? because it's updating track details every few minutes, and doesn't time out. If it does, I can just re-pair it. It does take a bit of patience waiting for this (the software for the phone is a bit slow off the mark) but I haven't had it refuse yet. At this point it's worth noting I'm using a Samsung Galaxy Note, so not actually one of the phones it's supposed to work with.

    Some apps work, some don't, some take a bit of effort.

    I bought this for £23 thinking its worth a go, and if it is really that bad then its destined for the bin.
    Firstly i charged it for 3 hours then put it into the strap, a tight secure fit, (battery lasts 3 days without use and a day using quite a bit) Then I paired it with my s3 and downloaded the sony app (the web link is in the instructions). All connected and after setting up the facebook and email notification section, all works!. If you get a problem with the bluetooth dropping out then keep your finger on the right watch button until the media control pops up, start to play a song then pause it by pressing the right button again, this keeps an active connection open as its waiting for you to press the button to continue playing (mine stays connected all day this way),then keep your finger on the right button until you go back to the main menu. DONT ever press the left button, its supposed to instantly turn off the display but also tends to turn off the watch!(and you have to re-pair etc...) Note: when you pair/connect with bluetooth WAIT for a miniute before using he watch, give it time to sync before pressing any buttons or it will disconnect! (about a min).

    NOW HOW TO REMOVE THE WATCH AND CHARGE: put the watch on a flat surface, put your fingers either side of the strap (where the pins are) with one hand each side, fingers on the top face of the strap, making sure your finger next to your thumb on each hand is over the full length of the pin (we dont want to bend the pin!) and butted right upto the body of the watch, put your thumbs under the watch in the centre, and push hard with your thumbs, the watch will literally pop out the strap carrier! as easy as that!
    The bottom line is, this watch is a total give away at this price! get it before its gone!!!

    The Sony Ericsson Liveview is something i've had for a while, and it's quite reliable when it works. If you get one of these, it'll take some time to get used to your phone. You shouldn't need any apps to fix the connection. The watch uses Bluetooth to communicate with the phone, and the new firmware update means that the time on the watch will stay correct even after connection is lost with the phone.

    By downloading apps for the LiveView from Google Play, you can benefit from the watch's full potential, such as mirroring the phone's camera and mainly, controlling the music player - which is my main use of the watch.

    The watch can also access Facebook and Twitter, providing you with a feed of your timeline refreshed at regular intervals. It can also view RSS feeds, missed calls, and upcoming calendar events. The watch can vibrate on incoming notifications, although I prefer vibration of since it is rather loud. When recieving an incoming call, the name of the caller comes on the screen.

    The watch's reliability really depends on your phone. If you have a low end phone, I don't recommend getting one of these. The watch's apps run on your phone's memory and are simultaneously streamed between the two devices. I have had no problems using this watch on my Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini, alongside my stereo Bluetooth headphones. It does not drain my phone battery, as I have had my watch connected to my phone for over 17 hours off-charge. The watch battery depends on how often you use it, and I strongly advice turning it off while it charges, and also not to leave it plugged in all night. I have got three full days out of the watch, using the original charger. When using another higher amperage charger, the battery life started to waver at around a couple hours before it dies.
