Sony SmartWatch 2 review: a fair effort that still hasn't cracked it

 

We really wanted Sony to lead the way with the SmartWatch 2, but some buggy software and poor app choices keep this from being the de facto option.

Well-built ; Easy to use ; Large number of apps

Some software issues ; Average battery life

At $200, the SmartWatch 2 is cheaper than its most obvious competitor, the Galaxy Gear, which costs $100 more. That's quite a difference. Of course, the Galaxy Gear has some notable hardware features that help it stand apart --namely, a camera, speaker...

Sony SmartWatch review:

 

Editors' note: Sony has recently equipped the SmartWatch with fresh software . This review has been updated to reflect these changes.

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.

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.

The Sony SmartWatch enters the realm of usability thanks to recent software updates, but it's still more smartphone accessory than solid standalone timepiece.

Sony SmartWatch review

 

The Sony SmartWatch is an intriguing device — a secondary display for your Android-powered handset that provides quick access to notifications from select apps and services on your phone. It's also...

Better looking than most smart watches ; Definite geek chic factor ; Comfortable ; Works seamlessly with a recommended handset ; Music controls are a nice touch

Software is overly complex to set up ; No guarantee of future compatibility ; Apps are of limited use ; Initially confusing ; Expensive

A neat idea, but it's tough to escape the novelty value

Sony SmartWatch - Pocket-lint

 

The idea of a Bluetooth watch that keeps you updated about phonecalls, text message and tweets and allows you to get yourself into Eighties teen comedy

Not bad looking, small, battery life is decent

Strap supplied isn't that comfortable, the gestures and touchscreen are a mess, screen resolution is poor

The Smartwatch is pretty good as a gadget-lover's phone companion. The big problem with it is that it needs a phone to function, along with all those apps that you need to install before it will work.
