Sony Smartwatch 2 goes official: water-resistant, open API
The new SmartWatch 2 allows you to check your calls, messages, emails and notifications without reaching for your smartphone. It's got a 1.6-inch 220 x 176-pixel touchscreen and a gorgeous aluminum body. Moreover, it is water-resistant (IP57 certification) like the Xperia Z Ultra. It will of course work with other Android smartphones as well with the requirement being they feature Android 4.0 or newer, but it will not be compatible with the iPhone or iPad.
The user interface of the gadget has been overhauled to better work with touch and be closer to that of Android. The new Sony SmartWatch comes with 200 applications from the start and an open API for developers to bring their own apps. You can also control your music with it and connect it to a Bluetooth headset via NFC to receive and end calls. The battery life of the device is said to be around four days and it charges via standard microUSB.
The Sony SmartWatch 2 SW2 comes in a variety of colors for the strap and actually you can just use any standard 24mm watch strap. It - of course - works as a standalone watch as well. The smartwatch is coming this September in black and the price is yet unknown.
