But does it tell the time?

Banned

you can see it's displaying the time on the top right of the screen. More importantly does it show the date?

This looks really good to me, but noticed people are voting it cold? Does that mean they know of something better out there? If so, please let me know? Thanks.

The previous version was junk which is probably why the cold votes but I think this newer version worked better. Need to read some reviews to find out. Price is good compared to watches like the Pebble. Oh, this might be Android only so another reason for cold votes from iOS users??

It tells the time and date depending on the watch setting you choose.
Analogue, Digital and Digital with date.

I got mine free with my Xperia S last year and find it to be a handy piece of kit.
If you are in a meeting in work and can take your phone out. You can quickly read messages with a quick tap on the watch,
You can also set tit to vibrate when you have a call. This is also handy of your phone is in your jacket pocket or in you bag.

Would I pay £65 for it? Perhaps... I use mine every day but I did get it for free with my phone

How long does the battery last?

Is there a Samsung equivalent?

Lol...From that review link...

"Should I Buy It?
No. Absolutely not. No one should own this, no matter their lifestyle preferences or moral views. I promise you—you won’t like it. The Sony SmartWatch is pathetic, frustrating, and empty."

Yup, it works equally badly with most smartphones.

Gizmondo reviewed it with the catchy headline "Maybe the worst thing Sony … Gizmondo reviewed it with the catchy headline "Maybe the worst thing Sony has ever made".Catchy huh?



As with any Gizmodo review, it should be taken with a pinch of salt. If it isnt made by Apple then they dont like it.
The smartwatch isnt too bad but it is limited and, in my opinion, looks a bit silly on your wrist. I wouldnt buy it at £63 but if it came down to £30ish I might consider it.
