Decent price for branded quality

fairly favorable review as well, although a slight question mark over battery life

Old model that can't even display the time without a Bluetooth connection to the phone! Better off putting your money towards a Pebble for even the Sony SW2, which at least has 4 to 7 days battery life unlike this one that will also affect your phones battery life.

Heat for this, these will find a home.

Good price for poor device.

Sony is hack prone.

Any why not? It is good advice in this instance. Just because something appears to be cheap and good value doesn't make it as such. The problem with this website is far to many people are price led without actually understanding anything about the product.

As much as I love my technology, and usually well versed in such.... smart phone watchwear is not something I am well versed or have spent the time in researching. Therefore I am grateful in knowing what a product can or cannot do at its price point, whether or not it is a 'bargain' relevant to its original RRP.

Not voting either way, yes it is 'cheap' but very old product now and the person you are buying it for is likely to be disappointed.

Had the first version. Wasn't bad at all. But the battery and the lack of 3rd party support killed it. I am not very sure about this one though, but for the price it's a quite good watch.

If someone has a limited budget or is only looking to spend X amount and no more, "why not spend more" is about as useful as a one legged man in an bottom-kicking contest .. (the word censor doesn't like the "A" word :))

Every single device? Or is this just based on the Koreans hacking Sony due the the offence caused by the movie the Interview?

Looks good for the money so heat added but I'll stick with my pebble

I was looking for the post that you replied to and wondered why I couldn't see the entry - it's because I have ignored that user - probably from them posting a load of crap too many times.

Granted nothing wrong with working to a set budget. But in some instances you are better to go without rather than buying something outdated or sub standard. It's like when people come on here saying they want a 'decent' tablet for under £50. It's not going to happen.

Gen 1 woz terrible ... loads of disconnects half the bluetooth phones it wouldnt link up too ....I wouldnt even bother wasting £10 on it if anything like the first one

Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man

Mediocre reviews at £79 18 months ago when all this sort of thing was new, shiny and exciting. Now it's £55, doesn't seem that hot to me.

Knowing that it can't even display the time if your phone battery dies is extremely valuable info to me.

Optimism is hoping Sony will make better versions in the future. Not hoping a rubbish product will work ok, that would just be plain naive.

And plenty more lurking around trying to persuade people that this is some kind of 'must have' gadget!

Crikey. It looks so dated now lol

Got the first Gen free with my Xperia S, used it for about a week and got sick of charging it every day. Not sure how applicable this is really to the Gen 2 but I would give it a miss.

I have one of these, it's quite an old model, got it free bundled with a mobile phone. It's fun to play with, but quite buggy, sometimes can crash phone!

I wouldn't pay for than £30 for it.

However, Sony released a software development toolkit for it so you can do interesting things. Unfortunately it hasn't been updated in a long time.

So my advice is not to buy it, unless the price drops a lot more, and then only if you're a real geek who's willing to put a fair amount of effort in to it

That's likely to be the biggest problem with buying one of these now.

Sony have switched to Android Wear for the gen 3 version. So I'd be surprised if this one got much in the way of updates now ...

great!! cheers!!

Sony are very good at abandoning failed products and this is very much a failed product they've struggled to even give away. There won't be any future development, not from Sony and 3rd parties never really got started on it.

Right now all these so called smartwatches are seriously poor. Might as well spend *less* on something cheap from China, it's going to end up unused in a draw whichever POS you buy from the current crop.
