I am an IT guy and I have to answer my emails promptly. I work in an office and I get tons of emails each day and I know my phone constantly beeping with incoming emails can be annoying, and vibrating notifications weren't working for me either. So I was hoping the Sony Smartwatch would allow me to get my email notifications on my watch, thinking I would never miss something vibrating on my wrist. Well, it does just that. It vibrates quitely when I receive an email or text message or a phone call. I can turn the ringer off on my phone and nobody ever knows in the office. I can take a quick glance at my watch, decline a phone call or peek at the sender and subject of an email without the person I am talking to even knowing.
The things I like:
Style and Look: Except for the clip on back (more on that later) the design of this device is elegantly modern without making you look like a nerd. Really, if you pick a classic watch face design, and there are many to choose from in aftermarket software, it is a very good looking watch. With free aftermarket software, you can customize the look of the watch in many ways, the background color, digital or analog clock faces, the color of the hands, you can even put a photo as your watch face. The lady who sits next at work to me mentioned that she would love to be able to change the color of the watch to match her accessories.
Bluetooth connection: I've heard many say their Bluetooth connections are poor. I'm sure it depends on your phone but with my Galaxy S3 I have never once lost the connection to the phone; not once. In fact, I was surprised to find out that I can leave the phone on a table and walk all over my 2 story house and not lose connection. I was very impressed with this. Again, I think this may depend on your phone.
Battery Life: Because the main thing I wanted this watch for was work it needed to last all the work day, at least, and I am happy to say that mine lasts from dawn to dusk and longer, even when I leave the watch display on all day. Like many devices, including smartphones this thing connects to, you should expect to charge it at night, every night. I have been pleasantly surprised at the battery life because many other reviewers have mentioned poor, even unusable, battery life. You also have to take steps to reduce battery usage when necessary. For example, widgets tend to use up your battery faster and really don;t offer much. I don't use them at all, instead of a widget, I just open the app as normal.
Software: It wasn't apparent to me what to do when I received this device and I work with electronics for a living so that's a problem with the documentation that comes with the device. It does NOTHING, it won't even tell time, until it is connected to your phone via software you download to your phone. It was very ambiguous what this software was even called; it's called SmartConnect or LiveManger depending on what Android version you have. I soon figured that the SmartConnect app controls many other aftermarket apps. Most are free, some cost a buck or two. Some are very useful and it is fun to explore the apps available for the Smartwatch
Things I don't like:
The clip on back. I hate it. It adds 50% to the thickness of the device and offers nothing. It's called Smartwatch, it's a watch. I don't want to clip it to my backpack. This stupid clip makes the watch stick up 50% higher off my wrist and is the only thing I do not like about the look of this watch. This clip cost the Sony Smartwatch 5 stars in my review.
The charging cable/connector. Why oh why would Sony put this horrible, proprietary connector on an otherwise great device instead of a micro USB connector? Grrrr! The cable that comes with the Smartwatch is not very long and you won't find one like it at your local electronics store. It also does not make a very strong connection. I recommend taking the watch off of the band when charging because this ridiculous connector may not charge correctly with the band on. This nearly cost the device another star.
Overall: I would recommend this to friends because the pros far outweigh the cons. The thing that gets me is that the cons, namely the USB connector and the clip on back, were intentional chosen by Sony. How can they design something so cool then muck it up with the clip and horrible USB connector. Even with those mistakes, this device does what it says it does and works very well for me. Even my non-geek friends think it is cool just because of the way I can change the appearance of the clock face. My more tech-minded friends think it is cool that I get all my mobile notifications on my wrist. I have experienced none of the connection or battery failures other reviewers have written about.
Only glitch was that Sony issued an update (v1.0.15) in October and the Weather app stopped updating. I never say Sony acknowlege an issue but on Nov. 28 they issued a new update (v1.0.29, 538k) now available at the play store that seems to have cured the problem
For the ladies, particularly the small ones like me, the bands are very large. I had to use a kid's velcro timex band, cut the original watch off and clip this on. Worked well. No one has said, "What's that big*ss thing on your wrist?" so I guess it's not too noticeable. I do, however, think it should be thinner, but the face size couldn't be smaller. Still, it doesn't look stupid big.
If you shake your wrist, the clock comes on - I like that too, and find it's nice to have a watch on again. Also like the little GPS navigator app for download and can see that as being useful in a city so you don't have to have your cell out.
Don't know that this will be part of my daily wear, but certainly see it as something I will use for specific outings. Also, the original price is too much - I'd only see that as ok if it had wireless. I paid just under one hundred and feel like that's getting closer, but still think 60 bucks would be about the price one would pay for it. It's just a bluetooth gadget really.
One more thing I don't like: text needs higher res. Not unreadable or even close, but sad compared to my phone's text.
Adding: Google voice users. Best way to use with all aspects is to change settings in GVoice to forward to your email. Sony's Gmail app works very well and you get good notifications. I then disabled other alert apps, which I hope saves battery life on phone and watch. Sony's built in apps are doing it for me. I have an Experia phone though.
Fun little device. See it went down even more in price. Good. Hold out if you can - you'll feel better closer to 60!
