Sony has lifted the lid on the SmartWatch 2, a smart watch that can be used with any Android device like the Sony XPERIA Z (check out more info on the Sony XPERIA Z here). Sony has also revealed that the SW2 has NFC on board and more.
In Sony’s press release (check it out here), it said, “If you use Android, on either smartphone or tablet, Sony SmartWatch 2 is your ideal smartwatch partner.
“It’s easy and convenient to access notifications from your wrist such as messages, calls, email, Facebook/Twitter, Calendar, or use it as a remote for your Walkman or other digital media player. This wireless accessory is ideal for pairing with large-screen devices, such as the newly announced Xperia Z Ultra, in situations which call for discrete usage.
“SmartWatch 2 introduces new features as a natural successor to the current Sony SmartWatch such as NFC connectivity for one-touch pairing, stunning premium design and a range of technologies including higher resolution for sharper viewing, better visibility even in sunlight, longer battery stamina, more intuitive interface, standalone watch functionality and a wide range of pre-installed and recommended apps.
“When not connected to your phone, SmartWatch 2 works as a standalone digital watch. Read previously received notifications, access the time, set your alarm or even use as a light when searching for your keys.
“SmartWatch 2 can also be personalised with any standard 24mm wristband and new Sony watchstraps will soon be available for further expression of your personal style.”
Wear the SmartWatch 2 in September. Stay tuned for further announcements on pricing.
