The same here with Xperia Home 4.3! I had already updated on 4.3 when I got my sw2 so I don't know how the experience was with 4.2.2. I never had my sw2 connexted to my phone and wi-fi working correctly. It does though when I'm on mobile data plan and it is quite a nice experience!! Slightly smiling Face  I hope we got this issue solved asap cuz I am not going to let that "diamond" leave my wrist anytime soon! :smileysmileywink:

Hi, I have the same problem. Recently upgraded my phone to 4.3. Spent ages trying to work out what the issue was, then as soon as I switched off my SW2, the wifi started working! Sony please investigate and fix ASAP!! Slightly smiling Face

Has anyone come up with a work around in the meantime? I can switch off bluetooth on my phone, and the wifi works ok. But then I don't get any notifications on my watch.. but a least I can still get the time Slightly smiling Face

Noticed that when bluetooth is on, wifi does not work and disconnects. If bluetooth is turned off and the wifi started, then it work.

Bluetooth connection to my headset and speakers has no effect withmy wifi, only when connecting to my smartwatch 2. Not sure if there is a way to downgrade my software???

You Can downgrade to 4.2.2 everything will works well witch SW2. Downgreade must be done by Flashtool and only witch full wipe.

 

Shame that I can't work on 4,3 - that firmware was extra smooth and nice. Sony - please FIX WIFI problem witch Smartwatch 2!!!
