On the face of it, the SmartWatch 2 is the Pebble without the open-source SDK but with a colour touchscreen. Just like the Pebble, it’s more like a notifier and doesn’t have high-tech, smartphone-like features such as microphone, speaker or camera that you see in the Gear.
Let’s be realistic, the earlier version of the SmartWatch by Sony was a sheer disappointment. The SmartWatch 2 looks a lot more promising, yet it has a long way to go. In short, it’s beautiful, comfortable, lightweight, and water resistant, but from here the things go downhill.
