Re: Android WEAR 2.0 for Smartwatch 3

Hi @rcsergi,

 

Welcome to the community.

 

As Android Wear is being developed by Google, not by Sony, I am afraid we cannot answer this question for you.

You can read more about the Android Wear 2.0 here: https://developer.android.com/wear/preview/index.html

Does SW3 No Longer Work With Android Wear 2.0?

Hi, I have a SW3 (firmware version on watch: 1.5.0.3508863) and it keeps disconnecting from my smartphone (Samsung Galaxy S7) which is using Android Wear (version: 2.0.0.160652436). I have noticed this had started getting worse since I updated Android Wear on my phone.

 

Sometimes my watch will connect to my phone for a few hours and then will disconnect again for no apparent reason. I have tried resetting my watch and uninstalling and re-installing the Android Wear app on the phone but it just seems that the two can no longer work well together.

 

I know Sony have said that the SW3 firmware 1.5 will work with Android Wear 2.0 but it seems it just doesn't and other people have similar issues.

 

Will Sony be relasing an update for the watch to get it compatiblle with the new AW firmware? Or have they just abandoned it now seeing as they're no longer in the Smartwatch business?

Re: Does SW3 No Longer Work With Android Wear 2.0?

Same thing. Watch doesn't work with Android Wear 2.0. Tried to download 1.5 - that autoupdates to 2.0 immediately.

 

This was rather expensive toy to just lay it on the shelf and forget. And in Russia this watch is still being sold . So selling products, that for sure will not work correctly and have no OS provided ... It's deceit of customers and a very poor decision for the brand reputation.

 

I'm not buying sony products any more, sorry. Company that doesn't respect it's clients doesn't deserve their loyalty and their money.

Re: Android WEAR 2.0 for Smartwatch 3

A great product from Sony, I am using with Xperia T2 ultra and SBH52 Bluetooth in Multipoint mode,
The watch can play music through the SBH52 and the SBH52 can receive call at the same time from the phone.
Don't expect repair service from sony.

I love All Sony products
