Sony SmartWatch 2 review: it’s not bad

8 March 2014
  • Excerpt: The best compliment I can give Sony’s SmartWatch 2 is that it works. I still believe that wearable devices are in their infancy, and the SmartWatch 2 is proof of this. While it’s filled with great ideas, a readable screen and actually looks like a fairly cool watch, the SmartWatch 2 is still more a novelty than an essential gadget buy.

Sony SmartWatch 2 review

7 January 2014
  • Summary: Time and again we’ve heard the same story: wearables are the next big thing in personal technology. Everyone will have wearables attached to their bodies in the next few years.

  • Cons: Low resolution display, Clumsy interface and setup, Lots of lag, Android only

Sony SmartWatch 2 Review

10 December 2013
  • Conclusion: If you're looking for a bit of fun in the immediate future and don't want the bulk of the Samsung Galaxy Gear (or don't have a Samsung smartphone), look to the Sony SmartWatch 2. If you've just heard of the Qualcomm Toq in this review for the first time ever, go with the Sony SmartWatch 2. If you like the idea of the physical buttons on Pebble, but would rather have a touchscreen and full color too, go with the Sony SmartWatch 2.

  • Conclusion: Sony gets closer to the smartwatch ideal with the SmartWatch 2, its second-iteration wearable smartphone companion. But bugs and other limitations make it a product that's unlikely to appeal to the masses.
  • Pros: Sleek, comfortable design. Several hundred apps already available. Water-resistant. Readable in sunlight.
  • Cons: Bulkier than the first model. Buggy software. Many apps lack utility. Doesn't make or receive calls. No camera. Only works with Android.

Meet Sony's much improved SmartWatch 2

12 November 2013
  • Summary: With its ability to push Android notifications to your wrist, the Sony SmartWatch 2 is more useful than Samsung’s Galaxy Gear, but the Pebble is still the best smartwatch deal around.
  • Pros: The Sony SmartWatch 2 screens phone alerts, Gmail, and call info in real time. The device also has a modern, water-resistant design that's compatible with standard watch bands.
  • Cons: The Sony SmartWatch 2 is tricky to set up on non-Sony phones. The watch has a small clock face selection, short battery life, and a quirky music player app. There's no iOS support.
