Sony expands its Smartwatch portfolio. The latest offshoot is consequently easy SmartWatch 2, 130 euros and promises to its predecessor, the first SmartWatch not only visually a number of improvements. We have tested the clock and reveal what and why it’s good. At the same time, there is the Galaxy gear renowned competition – can match Sony here?

Sony SmartWatch 2: Design

One thing is clear: the SmartWatch 2 visually makes a lot here. The new design is significantly edgier than even at the predecessor and thus gives a very modern and sophisticated impression. If I like one, is of course a matter of taste. In addition the SmartWatch 2 grew slightly:the 1.6-inch large display puts Sony in a roughly 4 x 4 cm large housing. Speaking of display: high-resolution displays of the Smartphone is used, will be somewhat disappointed by the clock. 220 x 176 pixels and thus approximately 176 ppi resolves the display – with current smartphones, there are happy times twice as much. The clock of the competition, the Samsung Galaxy gear resolves with equal diagonals with 320 x 320 pixels. This resolution works sufficiently to comfort: in the small area. The Android typical back -, home – and setting buttons are located below the display. The operation therefore is logically above all for Android users and lights up immediately.

The power button is located on the right side of the housing. Once you press the LCD backlight turns on, press again unlocked the clock and takes you to the main menu. However, it lacks the button clear pressure point, he feels slightly spongy. Well, we like the micro-USB port protected by a plastic lid, through which recharge the SmartWatch 2. When door is closed it is protected against splashing water. Bathing them you should not take with, hand-washing and rain but are not a problem.
With 48.4 grams, the tested model with silicone bracelet weighs slightly less than the Galaxy gear (76 grams), the metal bracelet is, however, significantly more weight on the scale: thus transporting approximately 133 grams on the wrist. Both versions carry is quite pleasant, the metal version looks slightly classier, but rigid and of course heavy on one’s wrist.

Sony SmartWatch 2: System

Great advantage of the Sony clock is the range of compatible devices. While the Galaxy gear speaks only with current Samsung models with Android 4.3, connect the SmartWatch 2 on the NFC and Bluetooth with any Smartphone with Android 4.0 or higher. That worked in the test both with a Xperia Z1 as well as a Galaxy S4 without major problems. Absolutely necessary the installation is then official app. This will also immediately serves as the command center for the SmartWatch 2 – from here you encounter for example the search for compatible apps play store.
In standby mode, the watch of their eponymous function comes up and displays the time. Has a total of ten different “Watchfaces” called watches designs the SmartWatch 2 in baggage: analog and digital, with and without a date, light and dark. The readability decreases unfortunately sharply if no direct light in the display. Direct sunlight, however, is not a problem.
The SmartWatch 2 does not respond to your movements. While the AMOLED display of the Galaxy gear itself is activated as soon as you lift the arm, an additional button is necessary at the Sony clock to activate the backlight in the dark, and so the time to read.

Sony SmartWatch 2: Apps

As for the Smartphone: really strong the SmartWatch is 2 only with additional apps. Well, 200 of which can be found when tested in the play store installation via their Google account works out smoothly. Often it’s extensions known Smartphone apps, with but also all sorts of shenanigans. That is worth a look Camera extension Sony, which serves as a practical remote control for the Smartphone camera. WhatsApp users can for example notifications be Wristn or WatchNotifier transferred to the clock – the answers you need to your Smartphone continues. Striking: for the most part cost apps money – who wants to really exploit the Smartwatch, should take into account in addition a few euro for apps to the purchase price so.

When purchasing the SmartWatch 2 you get a premium code for Runtastic Pro the same for free. The sports app transmits various information directly on the clock, while running or cycling you must not dig so for the phone.
Disappointing is the music control: from track to track you can jump, also play and stop is possible then but that was it. Just another album play, or filter by genre? That is not in there unfortunately at the SmartWatch 2, as well as at the Samsung Galaxy gear.
Apart from this, the clock meets what to expect. Calls, SMS and emails received on your Smartphone will appear immediately on the clock. Over the phone app you access the call list, contacts, and Favorites. You can start the clock also calls. Since the SmartWatch 2 is different than the Samsung clock but equipped with microphone and speakers, you must Access eventually to cell phone for calls. Can you not to plug a headset by the way on the SmartWatch 2.

Finally, a Word to the battery: the duration of the clock is not outstanding, but quite usable. Depending on how actively you use the clock, run-time are possible up to one week. Loads on the mains plug of the battery in approximately 1.5 hours back on. You can replenish the SmartWatch 2 via USB. Here at abbreviationfinder you can get more different models of the products.

Sony SmartWatch 2: Improvement

Really much there on the SmartWatch 2 not to suspend. After establishing uncomplicated, you keep all incoming notifications at a glance on the clock. Start just a timer or alarm set – no problem.
In some places the clock acts not so completely thought out. This is noticeable especially in the rudimentary MP3 player and the immature apps. So Facebook while informs you about every new post from friends, but the app reaches its limits when images and does not display them. Only in terms of fitness apps, we see a real added value for the users.
The weak-breasted hardware makes occasionally (processor:ARM 32-bit cortex-M4, STM32F429) felt:when launching apps, like a few seconds pass, the so-called remote shutter release for the camera shows no stutter free picture.
