Introducing the Sony SmartWatch 2

The most advanced smartwatch on the market, the Sony SmartWatch 2 not only has the longest battery life, but it is the world's first water-resistant smartwatch with NFC connectivity. As well as featuring call-handling and messaging notification, it also acts as a music remote and has an Android app interface, making it the ideal all-in-one alternative mobile device.

Long Battery Life

With a power-efficient processor for optimal battery performance and instead of a backlight, a transflective screen which uses reflective elements to provide better readability in bright sunlight, the SmartWatch 2 lasts up to four days under normal usage conditions before it needs to be recharged.


A second screen for your Android Smartphone or tablet (4.0 or later), the SmartWatch 2 allows you to make and receive calls using a wireless headset, reject and mute calls, browse your call log and check text messages, emails, Facebook and Twitter notifications. But as well as enhancing your device's existing functionality, the SmartWatch 2 offers unique new benefits too. Thanks to Bluetooth connectivity, you can use it as a remote for your Walkman or other digital media player and, being a wireless accessory, it is ideal for pairing with large-screen devices, such as the newly announced Xperia Z Ultra, in situations that call for discrete usage.

Convenient and Easy-to-Use

With the Sony SmartWatch 2 you'll never miss a thing. Acting as an Android Smartphone remote, you can keep track of everything without ever taking your phone out of your pocket or bag. When a call, message or other notification comes in, the smartwatch will gently vibrate on your wrist to let you know.

Pairing with your NFC phone is easily done by simply touching one device on the other and connecting instantly. One touch is all it takes.

From productivity tools to games and entertainment, there are more apps available for the SmartWatch 2 than any other smartwatch on the market. With more than 200 unique apps dedicated to Sony, your SmartWatch 2 can be personalised to seamlessly suit your needs, whether you're on the go, keeping fit, in a business meeting or simply at home. From mapping apps that let you check your route with a quick glance at your wrist to controlling presentations remotely using Presentation Pal, you can experience a range of new functions, without ever needing to reach for your phone.

Form, Function and Sleek Design

Drawing on the same design language as seen in Sony's latest Xperia Smartphones, the SmartWatch 2 combines a slim minimalistic appearance and premium build quality with dust-proofing, water resistance and a scratch-resistant, sunlight readable display, so you can exercise outside whether it's raining or sunny.

What's more, the SmartWatch 2 can be personalised with any standard 24 mm wristband and there are a number of stylish strap options from Sony, including metal, brown or black leather and five silicone colours. You can also choose between several different watch faces and themes.

When not connected to your phone, the SmartWatch 2 works as a standalone advanced digital watch, where you can read previously received notifications, access the time, set your alarm or even use it as a light when searching for your keys.

About Sony Mobile

Using groundbreaking design, Sony continues to introduce new technologies and has the largest range of NFC accessories available from wireless headsets to portable speakers, TVs, SmartTags and smartwatches. Sony is the market leader in smart wrist-wear, having launched the first ever smartwatch in 2007.

I was unfortunate enough to own the first two Sony smartwatches (this is the 3rd generation) so my expectations were quite low for this one and I only got it because it came delivered free with my Xperia Ultra Z.

I must say, Sony have really upped their game since splitting from Ericsson. This is a cracking device.

Some thoughts:

-It looks and feels premium. Previous versions looked like toys and were a little embarrassing to wear, this is fantastic
-Battery life is superb - I am charging every 4days - not bad when you compare the Galaxy Gear needs a daily charge
-The time displays permanently, big difference on previous version
-Easily add your own strap to add a bit more class
-Not many apps yet but those that are available and optimised for this version work well
-So easy to set-up using NFC, it really works well
-Came with no cables or charger so you have to supply your own - what's that all about??

I have to say I find myself wearing the watch on a daily basis while at work and love the fact that my phone can stay in my pocket and only come out when I actually need to reply to a message /email or browse.

Clearly some owners have purchased this device without really understanding what it is? When this occurs false expectations lead to disappointment. Before you purchase ensure you understand what this device does and does NOT do.

As an accessory to ones mobile in terms of notifications its a brilliant concept. I owned the Samsung Galaxy Gear for three months. I waited for the gear rather than purchase the already available Sony SW2 as I wanted the voice activation applications or so I thought.

Having owned the SG Gear I found speaking into a watch to take a call very embarrassing also others can hear what you are saying. I had NOT factored this into my expectations when waiting for the Gear. Believe me speaking to ones wrist in the middle of the street or supermarket is a very odd experience. Not for ME BUT others may not mind this? Just reminded me of when I was a child seeing the local idiot speaking to his wrist watch pretending to be chatting to some one? Creeped me out lol.

The Gear is a superior device in several ways, the quality of the body, the speed of operation, the sensitivity of touch are better than the Sony. There are some real bloopers with the Gear though, the strap has problems in that the clasp is of the cheapest type available on a watch, water, even sweat, enters the camera and mists up the camera lens. IN comparison the Sony is lighter, the strap is an awful lot more practical also replaceable.

The Sony is water resistant to a small degree so no need to remove it when washing hands. Rain should also prove no problem.

If you're thinking about the Sony SmartWatch 2 then you're probably also thinking about the alternatives such as the Pebble or the Samsung Galaxy Gear. Having taken them all for a spin, here is what I have found...

The SONY SmartWatch 2 (see The (Unofficial) Sony SmartWatch 2 Book) does everything the Pebble does (see The (Unofficial) Pebble SmartWatch Book)... but in colour, and with an intuitive touch-screen interface. This matters if you're using something like the third-party GPS Maps app for the Sony that shows your current location on the smartwatch screen. But if you want to receive message notifications from your iPhone, you will still need the Pebble rather than the Sony because the Sony only pairs with Android 4.0+ smartphones.

The Samsung Galaxy Gear (see The (Unofficial) Samsung Galaxy Gear Smartwatch Book) does a lot more than the Sony because it has a camera, a speech interface, and a mic / speaker to conduct a telephone conversation via your wrist. But it costs twice as much (or more) and currently only works with the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 smartphone.

The bottom line:

If you have an iPhone, choose the Pebble.
If you have or want a Samsung Galaxy Note 3, choose the Samsung Galaxy Gear.
In all other cases, providing your smartphone runs Android 4.0 or higher, choose the Sony SmartWatch 2.

This was obviously a reasonable price as it had been reduced but I'd buy again. For one, you don't need a Sony phone which I think is a great decision from Sony. The screen is transreflective so its perfect in bright sunlight and you still get colour (as opposed to Pebble). The battery life is very very good for a device that seems to do it all, second only to Pebble, I believe. The pedometer is a great way to stimulate you to be more active and I think this is how smartwatches will 'win' over consumers. It doesn't have a heartrate monitor which would've been nice but more applicable to a fitness smartwatch in my opinion.

The design is great, its large but it suits me (so say people) but my major gripe is that is has "Sony" written on it, has 3 'button's and just doesn't cut it for me as a watch I'd be proud to wear. The Pebble Steel is a great looking watch, as is Withings Activite but this is just that little bit geeky. If their next watch lost the buttons and the Sony logo I'd get again. Also the crown/button sticks every now and again.

Recommend as a wear-all-day companion though for so many reasons. Checking who's calling you without taking your phone out of your pocket in a social or work situation may sound silly or insignificant but it totally changes the dynamic with the people you're around. Nothing worse than people checking their phone during dinner or in a meeting, but a quick glance to your wrist is perfectly acceptable. Its bizarre how much of an improvement this is and I hope they catch on for this reason alone. At the cinema is also a great use, rather than taking out a phone that acts like a giant torch during a dark scene a quick glance can show you that it's not the babysitter thats calling and you can ignore or respond with a pre-written text.

If you don't have iOS or Windows Phone, I'd buy this, even over the Moto 360 everyone is waiting for!
