Sony SmartWatch 2 explained in hands-on video
I'm Luke Westaway for CNET and I'm here with Sony's SmartWatch 2. SmartWatches are tipped to be the next big thing in tech and here's Sony's latest effort.
So, this watch is designed to an extension of an android smartphone or tablet so you can use it to do things like making calls, checking your emails or looking at notifications from say, Facebook.
Other uses could be taking a picture with your phone remotely or checking your route while you're on a run or
controlling the volume of your music.
While it's not connected to a phone, it works as a standalone watch.
So that means you get the time obviously as well as alarms and a little flashlight.
You can also read previously read notifications.
It's made out of aluminum and Sony reckons you'll be able to see this 1.6-inch display even in bright sunlight.
It's splash-resistant but unfortunately, it's not suitable for showering or swimming, so you will have to be careful around the water.
Battery life should be around 3 to 4 days, so unlike a regular watch, you will need
to plug this in every now and again.
It's coming worldwide in September-- let me know what you think.
I'm Luke Westaway for CNET and this is the Sony SmartWatch 2.
