The LiveView is very light and I'm wearing it as a watch with the included band. One note about the band is that you may miss the tiny little pins that come in the box. Since there are no directions in the manual about assembling the watch band, I'll give you a hint. Snap the LiveView into the included watch backing which includes tiny holes for the pins. You then have to carefully and patiently attach the backing to the wrist band by threading the pins through the loops on each side of the backing and fit the pins into the backing holes. It's not unlike most pin based watches but it can take some time and dexterity.
When you receive a call or text you (as programmed via the app on your Android phone) will get a short half second vibration along with a color coded LED notification on the top right of the LiveView. The device is very well made and very classy, including the understated band.
The battery life seems very good which is important since you have to remove the LiveView from the watch band to charge it via the included USB cable.
The LiveView sold by Amazon.com is for the US market and includes a US style charging adapter.
In summary, if you want to make your Apple Iphone friends jealous (LiveView only works with Android now) this is the way to do it.Read more ›
The only drawback is the syncing of your phone and the liveview when the two lost contact with each other e.g. when you go far several feet/meters from your phone/liveview or vice versa, when bluetooth communication of both device where cut off you have to press the liveview button or open the liveview app itself to sync again and that is taking both device within each others bluetooth signal range and that is cumbersome specially when I arrived home and just put my phone above the drawer and expecting to be notified from my liveview of updates from my phone. But once the connection is made it is pretty solid. Unlike the bluetooth headunit in my car that whenever I start, it automatically sync with my phone no buttons to push or any settings to be made, once they are paired and bluetooth is on and your good to go. This would however be cool if sony still have the interest in updating the firmware of this device to automatically re sync when the signal of both device is within range of each other.
Be aware also that this device has a firmware update last year which somehow improves connection issues but that doesn't include the automatic syncing as what i have observed. With my sgs2 liveware manager causes undesired operation between my phone and the liveview and I just uninstalled it since it is not necessary. This is a great product and i hope sony will push a new firmware update for this device not just left it in the dust. i know they have a new smart watch but ohh!!!!! Sony come on don't leave us behind with this unfinished product.
- Cool concept. Wish it worked as advertised.
- Sync with Phone is erratic.
- Does not give any error message to fix the sync problems. Pretty dumb.
- No Email Sync/Notification.
- Ugly/Cheap looking strap. Although it has standard watch hardware, so you might be able to attach a better looking strap.
- Setting up sync up with a phone is not straightforward. Although instructions are helpful, so eventually you will get it.
- Costly, esp because it does not work for most of the times.
- Freezes once in a while, randomly, and then comes back.
- Awful battery life. Does not even last a day.
- Shuts off once in a while.
I can control music, take pictures remotely, make my phone sound an alarm for me to find the phone, send text messages for missed calls, secretly record conversations, read text documents, etc.
Also, the design flaw with the charger location I've managed to solve. Very easy to do. The liveview comes with 2 pieces that can attach to it. One piece is meant for you to wear as a watch and the other has a clip and lets you clip it on things, like your backpack. Just super glue the part with the clip onto your liveview. Make sure you avoid super gluing the charging port area. The point of super gluing the 2 pieces together is your liveview won't fall off the clipper piece.
Now, put your strap on your wrist. Clip the liveview perpendicular to your arm. Look at where the metal piece is where the strap wraps around and goes back to Velcro. There's an opening within the metal piece of the strap. Slide the liveview clip in there. This way you can view the liveview like a watch. I can't stress this enough. Do not clip it parallel to your arm. Clip it perpendicular to your arm via that opening within the metal piece. Sits very tight on the strap and very comfortably on your wrist.
I'm still amazed at how many things this "toy" could do.Read more ›
