    Style: Rubber Armband Verified Purchase
    I bought this watch specifically to implement an extension to my Android email alert filtering app eNotify

    I like this device overall:

    Positives:
    . Good value price wise
    . Good looking device overall -- came with 2 watch bands as well
    . Many very cool alternate clock faces available that completely transform the look of the watch -- like having a new watch everytime you choose a face
    . The touch screen works well the gestures well designed and intuitive
    . Plenty of good apps available since Sony is a first mover in this area
    . Apps are easy to find because they encourage developers to add a special tag to their Googleplay descriptions
    . Notifications are well designed
    . Each app can have its own section [Bit more like iOS than the usual monolithic notifications in Android]
    . You can move through individual notifications with swipe gestures which is really cool

    The negatives:
    . Loses the bluetooth connection with the HTC One V a little bit too often even when the devices are sitting side by side
    . It would have been more practical had they chosen to use standard micro USB charger [Smartwatch 2 uses the standard]
    . I would like a tiny speaker to offer alert beeps
    . It would be good if it could do different vibration patterns as well

    But I think this watch is good value for money. I'm happy to recommend it.

    Style: Rubber Armband Verified Purchase
    Was unsure about getting this at first. The price on Amazon finally tempted me. I doubt you'll find it cheaper, unless its secondhand. Battery lasts me a good two days. I do turn it off at night. It seldom fails to connect to my Sony xperia S. The display isn't too bad in daylight. I live in England so sunlight is rare. I do foresee that being a slight problem but not enough to make it unworthy of having. It comes into it's own when the novelty has worn off and you're using it as and when need be, as opposed to playing with it. Very, very handy to get email alerts. You get the subject header and who it's from. This is good enough. You'd need to open gmail in your phone to reply anyway, so not seeing the whole mail on the watch is adequate. SMS messages can be read in full. Loads of apps available. Gtalk notifier app is useless but a good alternative called Augmented Smartwatch Pro saved the day. In fact said app will enable you to set your watch up to receive notifications for almost anything you can think of. I wouldn't be without this now. Amazon, as usual, delivered within a few days. All in all I'm very happy with my purchase. Oh, it looks cool too. Bonus.

    I've had my SmartWatch for just over 2 weeks now, and while I am still happy with my purchase, there are a few things to bear in mind if you are considering buying this watch.

    1. It requires a constant bluetooth connection to an Android phone to do anything - it won't even display the time if you have not connected it at least once after powering it on.
    2. The device itself is essentially an extra, remote screen for your Android device - although it may appear that way, the various SmartWatch apps available on Google Play do NOT run on the device itself, instead they run on the phone and their output is sent to the watch. This means that any apps you have downloaded for the watch will be constantly running in the background on your phone. So, if you have an older Android device with not a lot of memory, this could be a big problem and cause your phone to slow up considerably. I have an Xperia Arc which has 512 MB RAM, and I would say that is about the minimum spec of phone you should try using with this watch. I need to turn off my bluetooth connection (which automatically shuts down the SmartWatch apps) when using memory intensive apps/games on my phone or performance will be affected.
    3. The bluetooth connection requires 2 apps to be installed on your phone, LiveWare Manager and the SmartWatch app. The bluetooth connection is however still not perfect, and drops out from time to time. This is improving with new LiveWare releases, and I understand it's MUCH more reliable than the old LiveView connection, but it's still not perfect.
    4. The music player widget will not show the album art and track name (as shown in the pictures here) unless you have a Sony phone and are using the stock Sony music app. The controls still work for other players (like PowerAmp).

    The Sony Smartwatch has proved better than expected. The watch connects to my Xperia S perfectly and responds to SMS,Email,Facebook notifications. I like the fact that you can read the whole message on the phone and respond with an automated reply. Using the music player function is great as I can leave the phone in my pocket whilst selecting tracks adjusting volume etc. The Sony designed apps work well and some other ones I have found are cool, especially the app that lets you see the camera view from your phone on your watch and take a photo from the watch!
    The bluetooth connection is fast and I have found the battery life pretty good. I used the watch for 4 days on 1 charge. The Phone battery is affected but not as much as expected. Another bonus is being able to see who is calling without getting your phone out. Shame that the charging connection is not micro USB but overall very pleased with the purchase.
