Sony SmartWatch 2 - Hands on Video
A hands-free helper from Sony
A couple of years ago, Sony Mobile had the clever idea of introducing the SmartWatch, essentially an extension of your mobile phone which would allow you to preview calls, texts and emails without having to take your phone out of your pockets.

A great idea but the implementation was lacking, particularly given the fact that the first gen SmartWatch literally could not tell the time unless it was paired to a handset, and the pairing itself was less than reliable.

Thankfully, Sony went back to the drawing board and has debuted the SmartWatch 2, which hopes to fix the mistakes of its predecessor.

The new device features a 1.6 inch touchscreen with a resolution of 220x176 pixels that is visible in bright sunlight and the whole unit is dust and water resistant - though that doesn't mean its ready to be taken into the shower! Swappable wristbands add some style and there are hundreds of apps available on the Google Play store that let you track your exercise, control your music and more.

We got hands on with the SmartWatch 2 at a recent Sony event, check out our video.


We love the idea of the SmartWatch and can't wait to find out if the latest iteration manages to deliver on the promise of this kind of second screen device. Check back soon for our review.

The Sony SmartWatch 2 is compatible with most Android handsets above Android 4.0 and will be available in September 2013.
