5.0 out of 5 stars A great tech toy, 4 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sony LiveView Touch Generation 2 SmartWatch Android Smartphone Accessory (Electronics)
I saved up my Amazon voucher from survey sites etc. for a couple of months to get this, and I'm not disappointed. Yes, it could have been better and done so much more, but then it wouldn't cost £70! If you download (for free) AppWidgetDisplay from the Play store, you can add all sorts of widgets in addition to the stock/official ones available from Sony Ericsson. I've got toggles for mobile data, GPS, WiFi, etc. You can get Google Maps, a Web browser, remote control camera, music player controller, message notifiers (email, social networks, SMS, MMS, Twitter), call notifiers, etc. I'm using it with a rooted Samsung Galaxy S2 running Jelly Bean 4.2.2 (CMW10), has full functionality (SMS notifications, calls, Gmail, etc.) as well as all the toggles. Comes with both white and black wrist straps as well as an adapter for you to fit it to any leather/metal strap. Easy to set up and use, doesn't seem to be draining my battery any more than usual and is a great little tech toy to show to your friends. I know there's a new version (SmartWatch 2) appearing soon as well as similar (and likely better) versions coming from Google, Samsung and Apple, but for this price I think it's worth being an early adopter and seeing if you really will use a SmartWatch before you splash out (likely hundreds of pounds) on one of the big three's versions. All in all it's like a spy watch you imagined when you were a kid and is definitely worth the reduced price you can now get it for.
