An update is available now for the Sony Smartwatch that brings a host of enhancements to the device, including the ability to make the watch face always visible (because what good is a watch without a face?) and enhanced usage support for both the Smartwatch Application and Endomondo Sports Tracker.


Not only that, but Sony has tweaked the Music Player, Weather, and many third-party apps to run much faster and smoother, as well as kick a few bugs to the curb. The update is available now in the Play Store, but you should also be prompted on your smartphone to install the update.

    Another good feature of this is that it now shows an indicator on the screen when it is charging! The update is V 1.2.33 by the way :)

      Does it work on ICS? I had to return mine because it did not support ICS phones.

    This is one of those things that I know I shouldn't get but I still really want

      I feel the same way, though I'm holding out for the Pebble. Hopefully it won't disappoint.

    Was thinking of buying a Casio G-Shock watch with world time and a nice digital display. But the price of that is higher than this Sony watch. Maybe I should just get this or something similar to it instead. The Pebble don't look as stylish as Sony's though. Need one that looks good and have good battery life. :D

    I am so disappointed.  I was hoping this update would allow the watch to answer calls.  I had a simple 29 dollar bluetooth watch that would do that.  The watch does answer calls on some android phones but not all.  I have the Motorola Razr Maxx and the icon to answer the phone is grayed out.  Sony says the phone is "compatible".  Tech support was no help.

    If anyone knows of an app that will allow the very expensive watch to answer a Motorola Razr Maxx, please let me know.  I really miss that feature.
