Sony SmartWatch 3 SWR50 is almost perfect, the only thing missing is the loudspeaker for phone calls and alerts.
Will there be a version of SmartWatch 3 SWR50 with loudspeaker?
I appreciate you considering my request.
I hope to get an official response from Sony as to whether the aforementioned feature is going to be added.
Hi @Kitezh47, welcome to our forum!
I'm afraid that I don't have any information regarding coming products and their features / specifications, however I will make sure to forward your wishes internally as user feedback and you can also leave your feedback directly to your Local support team as @uliwooly recommended.
Have a great weekend!
Until 2 weeks ago my SW3 was working fine for more than 3 years. 2 weeks ago I switched it off and put it in the drawer.
This morning I decided to wear it again and noticed that it has run out of battery, so I connected the charger and bootloop begun.
I see "Sony" then "SmartWatch 3" logos, then it repeats that over and over again. Charger and cable are tested and work fine.
Hi @Shojaee, very sorry to hear about this.
Since the watch can't be booted up correctly a factory reset will not be possible as you would need to access the settings of the watch, you can however try and perform a software repair using Xperia Companion.
Once you have downloaded and installed the program, do not connect your watch and click on "Software repair" > check the little box in the bottom left > follow the onscreen instructions. Do note that all data stored on the watch will be deleted and the latest available software will be reinstalled.
When the repair has been completed, try powering on the watch as normal and see if there has been any change.
Let me know how it goes!
I am seeing a white area on the left of the screen of the watch and also a few fine black/grey lines at the bottom.
As per the photo, though the bottom lines can't be seen really clearly.
Is there any way I can get rid of those lines?
If I take a screenshot of the wearable, the screen comes perfect.
I went to see one of my local "phone repair" shops the other day.
Our screens are somewhat broken, and the liquid has spilled within the screen.
The man told me that it would be cheaper to buy a new watch than have it repaired.
The thing is that comparing this smartwatch with the new ones, price vs functions and connectivity, the SWR50 still wins in my opinion if you don't mind sacrificing Android Wear 2.
Newer watches by brands like Samsung, Moto, etc are either 2-3 times the price of SWR50 or they lack on Wi-Fi, GPS or NFC.
Shame -also, that Sony has not updated this outstanding smartwatch.
I have been using my smart watch 3 successfully with a Moto X Play. I have just bought an Asus ZenFone 4 Max which runs Android 7, the smart watch pairs with this ok, but never connects. When I open Android Wear the ZenFone doesn't appear in the list of available watches. I have factory resetted the watch to remove the previous device, and the phone is brand new out of the box and has all the latest versions of Google play etc. Can anyone help?
I have managed to resolve this now. I resetted the watch again and made sure I had Android Wear open when the watch started up. Then I used Android Wear to connect the phone (previously I paired the phone manually).All good now.
Hi everyone, I broke the metal bracelet of my SmartWatch 3,I don't know where to buy it, any help is welcome.
Thanks in advance.
Bought the SW3 from sony on VERY in october 2016.
Not really had any issues appart from the gesture control not working but it never really bothered me.
However, since a couple of weeks I havent been able to use the watch at all. The touch screen is completely unresponsive. I've deleted the android wear app from my phone and upaired the watch even went as far as reseting it to factory settings but nothing. It is now stuck on the first screen asking me to swipe left to get started
Thanks in advance!!!
Welcome to the community.
I'm sorry to hear this. If you have already reset your SmartWatch3 to factory settings and you are still experiencing this behavior with your devices screen, I would recommend that you get in contact with your Local support team for assistance with having your device sent in to an authorized service center for repair.
You local support team can also assist you with questions you may have regarding service routines in your country/region.
Let me know how it works out.
Hi looking every were to buy replacement strap / adaptor all so expensive you'd buy a full sony smartwatch 3 for the price their looking for? Anyone here know were I get a pink one please.
Hi @pau5!, welcome to our community!
I'm afraid that giving exact costs and pointing you towards retailer which may carry our straps is difficult for me as this varies heavily on a market to market basis, but have you had a chance to see if we have an Estore in your local market? Have a look here to see if you reside in a country listed:
If it is not available, you may try getting in touch with your Local support team to see if they may have more information regarding the availability and pricing in your local market. Aside from that, I'm sorry to say that I can only refer you to other local- and online retailers.
If my post was helpful, feel free to mark it as the solution and kudo it so that other users may find it as well!
I have read the manual extensively, read countless reviews, and done research to gain simple understanding all to no avail. It should be noted my android wear app is up to date as well as the watch. I've paired it with my Droid Turbo but there is a lot of functionality that won't work or I can't seem to configure. When I receive a call, nothing happens on my watch. Swiping from right to left on the home screen on my watch does nothing despite what the manual says. I can't get the Endomondo app to recognize or find the watch. Trying to figure out how to download music to the watch for use without the phone points to using Google Play Music or "Sony Music App." The Sony music app supposedly needs the Smart Connect app which also doesn't work. Asking Google to navigate me somewhere doesn't bring up a map or give me turn by turn directions. If I had a nickel for every time the manual gave simple instructions on how to do something using functionality that doesn't exist, I'd be able to buy ten of these watches. Any help or guidance would be super appreciated.
Is the Sony smartwatch 3 compatible with the Iphone SE?
