6 March 2015
  • Summary: The Sony SmartWatch 2 is pretty reliable. The one we reviewed nearly 2 years ago and which we passed on to a team member, is still going strong, with the only issue being that the crown has been knocked off in a careless moment.

Sony Smart Watch 2

16 April 2014

  • Cons: Heavy to wear, Limited watch-face options

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.

17 February 2014
  • Conclusion: As a notification center on your wrist, the Sony SmartWatch 2 is a perfect companion. However, I have to comment that it doesn’t always behave nicely with non-Sony smartphones.

  • 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.

Sony SmartWatch 2 Review

11 November 2013
  • Conclusion: Sony’s Smartwatch 2 is a solid effort, and a bit better than Samsung’s Galaxy Gear – especially given it costs $100 less. Sure, you don’t get the camera or the mic, but you do get a decent selection of apps to play around with, which makes Sony’s offering feel more versatile, despite the extra...
  • Pros: Works with any Android 4.0+ phone, Battery lasts 3 days, A decent selection of apps, okay to wear in the rain or in the shower, Micro USB charging port
  • Cons: Power button stiff and uncomfortable, No mic for voice commands/dictation, Notifications better than Galaxy Gear, but still flawed, Many third-party apps aren’t great, App searching and install process is tedious
