The Velcro strap that comes with it fits poorly with the watch, meaning that it can pop off randomly (Imagine trying to find this thing when it comes off..

Half the applications to download, never really worked well, if at all. the battery life won't even get you through half a day.

I bought this device only for one reason. "No more missed calls while your phone in the pocket". Luckily, it does the trick. It gives you helpful notification of the incoming calls, messages, etc. Also you can remotely navigate thru your music, which is really convenient.

Well, it arrived a day early, which is good on the delivery service the seller uses. The device itself could stand to be better described, I was under the impression it was a touchscreen device. It is instead a screen surrounded by a touchpad, much like the one at the base of many of the newest of Android phones, and on the Palm Pre phones. This however works VERY well! I expect that the bluetooth connectivity would be superior with Sony's own hardware, but it so far has done well in my limited use. I'll update this later as I've gotten to use them tied more. My phone is the T-mobile USA Samsung Vibrant. Currently running Android 2.1 Eclair.

The novelty of this device wore off after about 10 minutes.
It's not going to be anywhere near as useful as you probably are thinking.
Half the applications to download, never really worked well, if at all.
the battery life won't even get you through half a day.

And the worst.... the "watch" is absolutely pathetic, it's a piece of Velcro you wrap around your wrist and attach via the belt clip, which puts the orientation of the "watch" face 90 degrees from the way you would read it. ABSOLUTELY STUPID PRODUCT AS IS. (not to mention the other method of using it as a watch, on your own band would require you to take your band apart at the pin every time to charge it (multiple times a day), since the pin to hold the watch face to the band totally blocks the charging port.

Okay, I lied, that's not the worst... the worst is that due to the pathetic engineering design, the dang thing keeps falling off it's "clip", multiple times a day at the slightest bump... including today... when I completely lost the dang thing (didn't notice if fall off)... Less than 5 days owning this STUPID PoS... and I've lost nearly $100.

DO NOT... let me repeat... DO NOT buy this item.
Not for several more generations. I cannot believe that Sony would put out such an incredibly f'ed up product... makes me reconsider ever buying any future Sony product, if this is the type of quality they are trying to sell.

Yes, it looks nice and beautifully glossy... that's about the only thing good about it.

sorry to burst peoples bubbles. I too had so much high hopes... especially with the ability to create programs to interface between android and it... but this was ridiculous.

I'll try to keep this short .

Firmware Update:
It's seems that Sony's Blog and 3rd party sites will mention a downloadable firmware update located at Sonyericsson.com, a website that seems to have been retired by Sony. I could find LiveView page at Sony support, but I could not find the link to download the firmware. Maybe I overlooked the link, but I just could not find on Sony's website. After about 30 minutes of Googling, I found a Android Forum that posted the files. Sorry, I did not think to save the URL so I can't post it here. If you need the firmware update, let me know and I can post it up somewhere for you to download.

Connection:
For the 48 Hours I have had this product, it was connected to my phone via Bluetooth 99% of the time. The other times it drop the connection is because I had wandered off more than 15ft away from my phone. When I got close to my phone, it would automatically pair up within 5 seconds.

Interface Lag:
I noticed that when the device is polling, receiving data, to attempting to reconnect to the phone, it freezes up for about 5 seconds before it becomes responsive again.

Watch Strap:
I really bought this to be uased as a watch. With this new update, it seems that it can and will keep time and date even when it losses connection to the phone. I'm not sure how long it can keep time with the phone since I am still assumes that Liveview is leeching time/date info frmo the phone.
The watch strap is a cheapy looking velcro band. Aseemblying the watch is rather simple if you have change watch straps before. It should be rather challenging for those of you who has never done so. I have manage to assemble the watch band to the plastic housing under a minute.

I received my Sony watch about a week ago and before buying I was a bit skeptical, reason being all the bad reviews which were posted upon this site. Just for kicks I figured I'd order it because of the price only being 30 bucks. Lots of bad reception like, bad wristband, disconnects all the time, buttons won't work. Truth is this thing only connects up to 35 feet in length not a long ways. And as far as wristbands the band is not all that bad. If you are unhappy with it there are other bands you can buy for under 10 bucks. My buttons work fine. Anyway I found this watch to do everything that is promised except one thing. And that is connect to Facebook and Twitter. And the only pain that I found was that to charge it you must remove the pins which hold the watch in place. Other than that this watch does exactly what it is made for. So I gave it 4 stars only because of the pins. The battery life is not as bad as put out either. It will last a whole day even more if used casually. If used for apps and so on it tends to tear through battery life pretty substantially. This product is actually very well made for a 30 dollar piece of hardware, if you are someone who wants an easy way to be informed of your calls, texts, events this is perfect for you. Now if your a techy and wanting to play don't complain and pay a 129 dollars for a more upscale smartwatch.
