Sony Smartwatch MN2 review

28 May 2013
  • Summary: The Sony Smartwatch MN2 has a lot of flaws, ranging from minor inconveniences to design decisions that make you wonder about the intelligence of the people who made them. At $125 in the US ( Amazon ) it’s a lot more expensive relative to the Pebble and Meta Watch than what it is here in Norway (where the Sony watch is 1/3 the price of the other two), and given that, I’m not sure if I can actually recommend this to anyone.

Sony Hopes You’re Ready for a Watch With Four Days of Battery Life [Sony SmartWatch]

The UberReview
24 December 2012
  • Excerpt: Meet the Sony SmartWatch, it comes with a 1.3-inch OLED touchscreen, Bluetooth 3.0 and four days of battery life and can connect with your Android phone to read texts and emails, receive Facebook and Twitter updates, make and answer calls, control music playback and run apps that are compatible with its tiny screen. Me, I’ll avoid the chore of having another gadget to charge, and stick to my humble solar-powered G-Shock… for now at least.

  • Excerpt: Now you can look like Dick Tracy, with this watch that connects to your Android smartphone. It shows calls, messages and notifications. It’s got a touchscreen. It’s powered by Android, so can run apps. Basically, it makes other watches look like they’re stuck in the 19th century. BC.

  • Excerpt: Smartphones are the ultimate connectivity security blanket for a new generation of consumers. But the gift of talking, texting and tweeting from anywhere we fancy comes at the price of distraction. Today, we’re all seemingly at the beck and call of a chime or vibration, pausing life to dig into pockets and bags, just to make sure the internet is still going strong.

Sony SmartWatch

LAPTOP Magazine
12 April 2012
  • Summary: Like the I'm Watch and the WIMM Watch, the Sony SmartWatch shows promise, but needs plenty of work--mainly on the part of developers--before it will appeal to more than just early adopters. At $149, it's $20 more expensive than the iPod nano, and, unlike other smart watches, pretty much becomes useless when not paired with a phone. But for those who have trouble digging that Galaxy Note out of their pockets, the SmartWatch could be just the ticket.
  • Pros: Small sleek design, Shows useful information at a glance, Facebook and Twitter integration
  • Cons: Limited number of apps, Hard to read outside, Only works with Android phones

Fresh software makes the Sony SmartWatch better

4 April 2013
  • Summary: The Sony SmartWatch enters the realm of usability thanks to recent software updates, but it's still more smartphone accessory than solid standalone timepiece.
  • Pros: The Sony SmartWatch draws the eye with its sleek, stylish looks. It also offers a wide range of wireless functions notifications, call handling, and music control made possible by a Bluetooth smartphone connection.
  • Cons: The Sony SmartWatch needs an Android smartphone connection to function or even keep the time, it isn't compatible with iOS, and its display can't be read in sunlight. It needs to be charged daily.

Sony SmartWatch Review: Not Smart Enough

13 July 2012
  • Excerpt: With a colour, multi-touch screen attached to your wrist acting as a remote to your Android device’s incoming emails, tweets, Facebook posts and messages, you’d think that the Sony SmartWatch would be a piece of kit that a geek like me would be thrilled to strap on and use proudly all the time. At least that’s what I thought when I pulled it out of the box. The reality is in fact, very different.

Sony Smartwatch

26 September 2013
  • Conclusion: O SmartWatch é um produto para um nicho de mercado ainda pouco usual. É claro que esse nicho existe, já que um certo número de fabricantes tem optado por criar projectos similares para a ligação aos seus dispositivos móveis. O SmartWatch definitivamente tem características interessantes, principalmente como ecrã de notificação do seu smartphone de grande porte como os recentes Sony Xperia Z ou Z1.
  • Pros: Design simples e funcional para trocar de bracelete, Possibilidade de usar braceletes de relógios normais, Características básicas funcionam tal como anunciadas
  • Cons: Configuração dependente de smartphone e aplicativo, utilização inicial complexa
