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.
