Sony SmartWatch software updated, new watch faces added and more


If you don’t yet own a Sony SmartWatch then their has never been a better time to give one a try. Sony has rolled out an update to the device that gives the stylish wrist wear access to a variety of new features that include six new watch faces you can enjoy.


The new faces bring new styles that are sure to fit in with most people’s personal tastes, they include both retro and contemporary designs. One thing that is really nice about the new watch faces is that each face actually carries it’s own functionality. Another feature that is really nice is that the way the watch face is triggered, it can be triggered by either tapping the screen or it can self activate when the user moves the watch towards there face.

The update also includes “snippets”, a notification for emails, Tweets, Facebook posts and more. This will come in handy when you are on the move constantly as you will no longer need to keep checking your phone. Pairing the Sony SmartWatch with non Sony devices wasn’t as streamlined as it should have been but now Sony has included a QR-code to allow seamless pairing. Another welcome update is the improved battery indication, this feature wasn’t great previously, but now it is more accurate at telling the user when there device needs charged. Sony have also included improved search functionality, Sony has included categories to make it easier for the user to access and download available apps they are looking for.
