4.0 out of 5 stars All-round good smart watch, 6 Oct 2013
This review is from: Sony Universal SmartWatch 2 SW2 with Bluetooth One Touch NFC for Smartphones with Android 4.0 - Black Silicone (Electronics)
I have had this watch for about a week now and after reading some poor reviews on the watch was a little worried about it. But so far haven't found any problems with mine. I had the second generation watch which I thought was OK but this new one is a massive step up. The product feels much more high end than the last one and you can new see the time in bright sunlight also it does not stick out on your wrist like the previous version. Sony say that the battery will last up to 7 days for low usage and 3-4 days on normal usage personally I am getting 2 days but I do get around 10-20 email alerts every day through the day and multiple texts and various other alerts that I have set up which is the reason I wanted a smart watch (2 alerts every 15 mins or so).

I have given the SW2 4 stars because the battery only lasts 2 days for my level of usage (1 day more compared to the last generation).

Pros:
Can read the time without switching the back-light on even in the sun
Battery lasts twice as long as the previous generation
IP57 water proof so you don't need to worry about damaging it when washing your hands
Bigger screen and 3 touch buttons
Sits better on your wrist compared with the last generation
One touch NFC link with phone

Cons
Bluetooth 3.0 when Bluetooth 4.0 is available and would help with battery issues.
Limited number of watch faces at the moment.

I'm using the SW2 with the Samsung galaxy S4 and it linked fine with no issues and I have not found any problems yet.

Hi, are you saying that email alerts are working fine with your Galaxy S4? If so Sony must have made some big changes, the SmartWatch 1 only had email alerts when used with Sony-branded phones.

There is a free Gmail app that you can use to get all your emails if you don't have a Sony-branded phone.
