Sony SmartWatch 2 gets an update to add custom watch faces and new features
All apps can now be installed, enabled and disabled from the watch itself. Using the advanced settings mode allows you to control the settings on each app from your phone or tablet, using the Smart Connect app. And a calculator has been added, allowing you to perform math right on your wrist.
The update should appear on your watch. If you don't receive it, head over to the Google Play Store to install the SmartWatch 2 SW2 app, found at the sourcelink. You will need to have the Smart Connect app pre-loaded on your phone or tablet.
If you think that the Sony SmartWatch 2 would look great on your wrist, you can pick one up from Amazon, where it is priced at $143.

I updated mine but the double tap to wake feature is not working. Is anyone else having that problem?

Nope, it works for me. There is a sensitivity slider, did you check that?

I like Sony's "design your own watch" approach. Good work. Obviously it could be much more than what their current app offers. Designer watch themes, anyone?

I've just recently started designing and developing custom watchfaces for the Sony SmartWatch 2 and I'm having a lot of fun. There's some really cool things you can do with it and lots of opportunity for customisation. My designs are on Google Play search for JJW Watchface
Let me know what you think!
