Here are the pros:
-bigger and better screen (1.3" vs 1.6"-full Transflective display 220x176 & scratch-resistant)
-longer battery life (3-7 days depending on usage vs 2-3 days previously)
-more touch sensitive
-back/home/menu buttons like all Android phones
-menu is easier to use (no touch controls to close apps or swiping up and down)
-settings in watch to switch clocks and apps (some apps still require in phone settings)
-easier setup with NFC and tap with phone (make sure you enable NFC in your phone)
-water resistant IP57 (30 minutes in FRESH water up to a depth of 1 meter & dust proof)
-lots of free apps (weather, currency, photo slideshow, Twitter, Facebook, GPS, games like Blackjack etc.)
-easier to charge with standard micro USB charger (proprietary connection previously)
-easier to see in daylight
-watch is always on to tell time but dims to save battery, push power button to lighten up (previous model turned off with no time display)
-works with any Android smartphone running version 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) or later
-aluminum body (plastic body previously)
-ability to change watch band (it can take any standard watch strap that is 24 millimeters wide).
-all previous apps work from last year's model
-limited apps out made for the SW2, but this will change as it's just been released
-currently only 5 watch faces in settings (there are paid apps with more)
What do I use my watch for?
-Tell time of course, but also with the ability to change the look each day (almost a new watch daily).
-Notifications for emails, texts, tweets, and calls (discreetly reading a text during a meeting or while driving or in a theater).
-Never miss a call again when you are outside (watch vibrates when calls come in, you can answer or end call--still need phone to talk).
-Finding my phone (I can call my phone from the watch to hear where I left it).
-Never leave your phone behind again (because it's connected by bluetooth, the watch will vibrate to notify if you are too from it or the connection has been lost).
-There are unlimited uses as more apps become available. Some others include a flashlight, viewing my camera while I'm away from my phone, remotely turning phone to silent or vibrate mode etc.
Note: Sony created "Open Smarthwatch Project" this past summer to third-party firmware which enables any developer to create apps for their smartwatches. So there is no need to worry about a lack of future support. This watch is actually Sony's third smartwatch. In 2010 Sony Ericsson unveiled the "LiveView Watch" and 2012 Sony released "SmartWatch 1" (bought out Ericsson).
Update Oct 23rd, 2013
I've had the watch for just over two weeks now. I've managed to get almost 7 days battery life by turning the watch off each night before bed. Without turning it off, I managed to get about 5 days. So if you are lazy at charging, turn off the watch to get an extra couple of days. Another tip for a fast charge (approx. 1 hour), I use a 10 watt AC adapter charger that came with my Nexus 7--like I mentioned, that standard micro USB is handy. These 10 watt AC adapter chargers can be found online for $10.
Update 2 Dec 6, 2013
I received a free update for the watch last night, Sony has doubled the total watch faces to 10! There are some very nice designs from digital, analog, and classic museum styles.

Sony outsmarts Samsung with SmartWatch 2
I have had the watch for several months now and I love mine and I just got a comment the other day when ordering lunch from the guy behind the counter - "awesome watch dude". I think they have gotten it right on the size and proportion. The functionality is great also. What I really love is that when I leave the office at the end of the day the watch buzzes just before I get on the elevator if I have accidently left my phone behind. Can't tell you how many times in my exuberance to escape at the end of the day I have left the phone behind. Occasionally the watch and phone don't pair, or loose contact with each other. They can easily be re-paired, but I sometimes have to remember how to do it. I have a Samsung S5 and it works great with that. I designed my own watch face, and found that you can put too many apps on the phone and the battery does not last long. I am using all Sony apps and it goes several days. It recharges Very quickly, just an hour or two. It is a great watch and I find it does exactly what I wanted. You do still need to take out your phone to talk, but you can see who is calling first so you don't have to interrupt what you are doing if the call can wait. It reminds you of upcoming events and you can easily read texts from the watch without going to the phone. You do need to go to the phone however to respond.
It keeps excellent time.
It connected seamlessly to my Android phone ( Nexus 5, new, latest version of Android ) by a simple NFC "tap," then remains connected (for the most part successfully) via Bluetooth.
It will vibrate and flash alerts. You can set it so you can answer, even dial your phone. But you can't send texts, emails, or talk into it. For the most part, it's one way only. ( I say for the most part, if you want to "dismiss" a phone call with a pre-set text message, you may be able to do that).
Is it worth the price? Yep. That's because it reminds me when I walk away from my phone, and, boy, with all I have on that phone, I'm delighted the SW2 has an APP that vibrates when I move too far away, and locks the phone if I don't go right back.
The rest I find sorta' functional. But it is definitely getting better as Sony improves the Firmware and developers offer new Apps.
