Love mine. I bought the white strap as the black picks every bit bit of dust and fibre out there. Reports state it will be getting Android Wear 2.0 which should prolong its usefulness.

Would highly recommend it.

Where did you see that about Android Wear 2.0 please? Can't see anything about it. That would make it an instant buy for me.

That's great news, I wasn't aware of the imminent upgrade.

Nice find op, looks great for the money.
Maybe worth trying with some of the new customer codes about?

Just got it for £67.98 delivered using first time buyer code: KPAJM.

Had to sign up to their credit account though.

I wouldn't risk it

Upgrade to 2.0 is far from confirmed, but not officially ruled out either.

​That's what I did. Should be here tomorrow

Good price, heat! Sure it went cold though last week when £69.99 @ Amazon, funny how some threads go!

Great price! But I really want the Stainless steel version and that costs around the £150+ mark

I've had this watch about 12 months now . I like it for notifications etc , but the GPS is rubbish on it , so if you're thinking of using the built in GPS to track your running etc without your phone , I wouldn't bother

Do you have a time machine handy?

I would.
I did

A very nice smartwatch! Only 2 complains... one is that the screen is horrible in my opinion, and second is that the black rubber band attracts small amounts of dust and dirt. Overall, very good smart watch

How did you 'get screwed'?
I've bought many products from Very (nexus 7, got the SW3 in December) and have no issues at all
I don't need any excuses..

Likewise. The black one looks like a cheap toy. According to Sony's website, it's stainless "steal" oO

​GPS works well for me, I'm using Ghostracer.

Does it work with iPhone with all functions?

GPS works for well for me in a standalone mode as well using Strava and I using it primarily for running. Some people report GPS issues due to sweat which is solved by wearing the watch over a sweat band - but it is not a problem that I have encountered.

That is my understanding as well and this is the first time I have seen Sony SW3 being listed as getting Wear 2.0. My understanding is that there is no reason why it can't get Wear 2.0 as it meets the minimum spec requirement. Even if it doesn't get the update, it is still a great watch and a good price.

Not all, as it is aimed at android. I believe since the last major firmwear/Wear update it may have improved.

I think the white strap is the best for this watch. What ever you do DON'T buy the oem Sony adaptor that fits any strap, it's expensive and hideous.

I've got one and love mine - battery lasts just over 2 days and there are hundreds of free watch faces available. I recommend the Facer app as a starting point (play.google.com/sto…_GB). It's just a pity the stainless watch band is so expensive...

Ordered one of these yesterday, first time I've ordered with Very and was disappointed to see they use Yodel as their delivery company! According to Very, they despatched it at half five last night, but according to Yodel they still haven't received it. I'm assuming that this is just Yodel being Yodel and not updating their website, but the delivery date when I ordered did say Saturday delivery to be fair.

Can anyone with experience with Very tell me if their deliveries ever happen next day? I am shockingly impatient with online orders!

​Do you still have the code? I wondered if it's a generic one, or one specifically for your account.

I've thrown the letter away but it was addressed to me personally as an existing account holder. They send me these letters every so often to encourage me to buy something from them!

I sometimes get those letters too, not had one for a while though, hopefully I'll get one in the next few days.

I got one for £135 or so about 6 months ago on Amazon. I only went and lost it in my house a few days ago!! Can't justify buying the exact same one.. But it's a great watch! Does everything I want/need.
