What to Expect from the Sony Smarthwatch

What we know so far FAQ...

The Sony Smartwatch is the spiritual successor to the Sony Erickson LiveView which marked the first example of what would come to be known as a "smartwatch". The newer model promises to improve on the original in a number of ways. So what is so great about the upcoming Sony Smartwatch? Here are some key points of what we know so far. 

What Does the Smartwatch Do?

How Does it Work?

The Sony Smartwatch connects to your Android device via Bluetooth technology, sharing display data functionality. It is not a stand alone device, meaning that it is meant to work in conjunction with your Android device, not as a replacement for it.

How is it Different from Competing Smartwatches?

The Sony Smartphone is not a stand alone device. Rather, it is an accessory to your existing Android device and is an extension of it. The main difference is that the battery life is much longer than similar products like the "I'm Watch" and the "Motorola ACTV".

Can you Remove the Device from the Band?
