Sony SmartWatch 2 will have FIFA and Silver metal editions

As we told you earlier this year, Sony is the only FIFA 2014 World Cup official partner that manufactures phones. Its collaboration with FIFA allowed it to put the 2014 World Cup logo on the retail box of the new Xperia Z1 Compact. But Sony also makes smartwatches, among other things, and that’s why it will launch a SmartWatch 2 FIFA edition soon.

The Sony SmartWatch 2 FIFA edition comes with a wrist band that features the colors of the Brazilian flag. As you probably already know, Brazil is where FIFA 2014 World Cup will take place starting June. Other than the yellow-green wrist band, the SmartWatch 2 FIFA edition seems to be similar to the original version.

It looks like the Sony SmartWatch 2 FIFA edition will be launched in the UK starting March. Alongside it, a Silver metal edition will also be available (obviously featuring a silver metal wrist band). Retailer Clove will sell both new SmartWatch 2 models for $215 (£132) each.

Like most of Sony’s latest smartphones, the SmartWatch 2 is water resistant (IP57). It offers a 1.6-inch transflective LCD screen with 220 x 176 pixels, NFC, Bluetooth 3.0, and a battery that should provide up to 3-4 days of "normal usage."

Yeah, I was planning on ordering my Smartwatch 2 in black, but I also saw the Silver Edition that I might hold out for. If you like the FIfa edition, you should definitely check it out. The only thing that is holding me back is the Pebble Steal that will be coming out shortly. Mainly because of the 5 ATM water resistance. http://www.phonesreview.co.uk/2014/02/04/sony-smartwatch-2-fifa-14-and-silver-editions/
