This device woks well with Samsung Galaxy Note3
Its a little bit buggy but it is not a deal breaker and the updates so far have been fixing most of them. The only downside is that the screen scratches easily so you need to be careful with it.
Sony's SW2 offers the standard features of what most other smart watches are currently offering and the interface is smooth and responsive. I think the valus is excellent - Sony quality at a competitive price. I am generally pleased with the purchase... However, it is lacking in places. Firstly, it is NOT waterproof. It would seem this day-and-age a water-proof watch is a given. Secondly, the text is quite tiny to read on the watch. This is great to show-off the resolution, but not practical when you want to glance at content. I would hope there is a setting for this, but have not as yet found it.
This is great for driving when you get a text message, the phone stays legally in your pocket and you see the message on the watch after it buzzes.
It does survive being in the shower but I wouldn't recommend it, it is rather scratchy when you are washing.
You have to have it connected to Bluetooth earpiece to hear calls but txt etc is viewed instantly and shows calls coming in
Great device I dare say the more apps are made available the more you will get from this device
open it up watch was charged already
put bluetooth on both devices within two minutes all done,downloaded apps required and away I went,I couldnt be more happy with it lets me know number or if their in your contacts who it is,any txts, but not emails
only does that with sony xperia phones, but I knew that anyway,
plenty of apps to download from sony smartwatch site,weather app,music app turnsyour music on on your phone.
all in all excelleant piece of kit
Love the fact you can get nearly all of your information in one place, multiple email accounts, Facebook, Twitter, Texts, RSS feeds, music control,contacts, answer the telephone (very useful if your device is paired with a headset, even the weather! Means your phone can stay safe in your pocket and out of sight as well, no more flashing your £500.00 piece of kit to everyone on the train, tube etc.
Not so good........
The watch can be temperamental at times, meaning sometimes it just refuses to connect unless you reset the device, but it then just syncs. I am sure over time this will improve as Sony releases updated firmware.
Change the buckle to a deployment clasp (24mm standard width fits), the last thing you want is this coming off of your wrist, it is very light and I am sure it could come off and you just wouldn't notice it until you realised that the thing that was on your wrist had stopped buzzing!
So, still enjoying it, in fact was on a flight to South Africa recently and the guy sat next to me couldn't stop looking at my wrist, in the end he had to say "I love your watch, does it connect to your phone?".......... and so the sales pitch began!
It might sound like an advertising but believe me I'm not one of them, I'm just a happy customer who is enjoying his last purchase. Keep up the good work.
now down to the watch its-self
1.connection this is so easy like it says one touch on the back of the watch and your good to go (with NFC)you have to download the new app from android play store SW2 but after this sinks with your phone and you get your messages, email, twitter.. ect this watch also has a whatts app application on play store for 99p works well.. all i can say is you will not be disappointed with the new smart watch 2 go buy it...
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).
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
Bluetooth 3.0 when Bluetooth 4.0 is available and would help with battery issues.
Limited number of watch faces at the moment.
So, onto the watch. First impressions, it is very light. Some of you might like that but I am a big watch wearer if that makes sense and like to know I have something on my wrist. This is so light you will not know it is there so fitted a deployment strap to the watch so that at least if it comes undone it just sits around my wrist. By the way any strap with a 24mm width will fit the watch. Functionality wise as soon as you switch it on and pair it with your device it will download what you need, no issues with that. However, the stock email app for the device only works with Sony phones so you need to search the app store for an alternative. The alternative I downloaded works fine and was free. After the first pairing I walked away from my phone and it lost connection, the pairing of the device seems to be a little hit and miss at the moment, the instructions state that all you have to do is touch the watch on the back of your phone for the NFS to establish a connection, maybe it is just me but I have found myself trying to connect it for a few minutes sometimes - time will tell on this one.
So, overall a reasonable purchase and in my opinion is a better bet than the Samsung version, which is a bit whacky for my liking.
