Introducing the Sony SmartWatch 2
One of the enhanced smartwatch on the market, the Sony SmartWatch 2 has a long battery life. 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 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 high 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. 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 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 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 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 enhanced 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.

I am now able to read my text messages and reply with 10 preset messages on the fly, answer or reject calls on my wrist with the ability to answer on speaker phone using a button on the watch (really good if you don't have bluetooth in your car), you can also receive messages from apps such as whatapps, line, weechat etc. I've also managed to get google maps directions sent to me in real time which is really good when you're traveling and don't want to draw unwanted attention to your self with your expensive smart phone. You can also get all your reminders sent from your calender which is quite useful. You can even use your watch as a view finder and as a remote for your camera apps.
I did a lot of research on smart watches currently available and found that watches are still at their very early stages of development. Galaxy Gear watches are quite expensive and although probably easier to use straight from the box, benefiting from higher spec, and having a camera, IR blaster and built in speaker phone and mic; they are quite limited in terms of apps available for them since they have been updated to Tizen.
Sony watch already has about 250 apps and since Sony have released a firmware update are now a lot quicker and run more smoothly.
I use my watch with the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and have had no problems with the bluetooth connection dropping. The battery life of the watch is between 3 to 5 days and take about 30 minutes to an hour to charge. Even the standard black strap is not bad although some people have complained but I really like it and others have complimented me on my watch lol.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
The SmartWatch 1 is a basic smart watch with app functionality whilst connected to the phone, and the battery life is not great.
The SmartWatch 2 is the best choice, with it's independent functionality without depending on the phone, multiple app support whilst connected to the phone and it's professional design.
The SmartWatch 3 is not my type of watch since it's more towards a target audience of sporty people.
For a TL:DR review, here's everything bullet pointed:
+ This watch has an excellent feel to it compared to the SW1, the weight is distributed across the watch unit well.
+ Battery life is perfect! Leaving me more satisfied not purchasing a Moto 360 or an LG G Watch which apparently last for 2 days or so.
I received the watch on a Friday and charged it to 100% with the following apps:
- Find My Phone -Dialer -Call Handling Pro -Phone Battery
- Messages -StatusView -Torch -Alarm -Runtastic Pro
A week later on Friday the watch was at 15%. That's 85% over 10 days with moderate usage!
+ The Watch performs excellently with gestures such as the double-tap to wake
+ Everything is smooth and nothing bugs up with the watch
+ Haptic Feedback is very good and vibrations are strong so you won't miss notification
+ You can swipe clock faces whilst it's locked and you can even create your own layout with custom faces (Google Play Store) (shown on my pictures)
+ NFC made it very easy to pair my OnePlus One
+ The screen looks much better than the SW1 and looks sleek from a good distance.Read more ›
