- Anyone have this yet?
SmartWatch | Android Watch - Sony Smartphones (US)
I ordered one. Should be here on Tuesday.
It connects via Bluetooth. My phone (rooted Dinc2 running ICS) seems to be compatible with the apps. Got my fingers crossed. I think it would be nice to be able to see texts on the fly without whipping out the phone.
Can't reply via the watch, but I'll be able to see what's coming in and who's calling.
I hope there's a "silence" capability from the watch. That would be cool.04-15-2012 10:44 AM
- I got one yesterday, and am still trying to figure it out. Widgets keep getting stuck on the screen and I'm unable to change to another one. (this could be my fault, I "think" I'm doing the right thing) If I stop using them, then things seem to work great. I wish there was a bit more customization. I'm still playing with it, but so far, it's not bad. Nice things is, I needed a watch anyway so why not try this over spending $150 on something that only does one thing

My son got his Thursday. I thought it was cool, but he didn't let me play with it for very long, so I ordered my own. Now he washed his in the pocket of a pull-over. Now mine (due Tuesday) is going to him and I ordered another. Doh!04-15-2012 10:18 PM
- Mine arrived last night.
Pretty neat stuff.
I'm amazed that there are already third-party apps/widgets available for it.
I have a mode switcher widget (not written by Sony) on it. This is probably the most useful thing...really makes it not just a "gee whiz" gadget. With it, I can switch my phone to vibrate, or silent, without taking it out of my holster. Great when going into meetings.
I've had to shut the watch off a couple of times and re-start it. Fortunately, it takes about 5 seconds to "boot" so, it's not like rebooting an Android phone (or, God forbid, by old Palm Pre - which took 8 minutes to boot!).
The "back" gesture took some practice/playing around with to get right. You touch the screen with 2 fingers to go back...but you need to make sure your fingers are separated or it won't recognize it as "two". Once I figured that out, things worked much better!
I'm hoping (but doubting) that Calengoo will write a widget for it, since I use Calengoo instead of the stock Android calendar.
Also, there's a widget for Gmail notifications...but I'm not seeing one for "Email" notifications (why these have to be separate apps in the Android universe, I dont know).04-17-2012 08:04 AM

- I got mine several days ago and love it. It does take some time o certain aps like the weather in which it appears that is froze but eventually provides teh information. I have a couple of aps in mind that I will be working on shortly.
Using mine with a Galaxy SII phone...have not tried it with my tablet yet.05-09-2012 07:01 PM
