For Start up Guide

You need to charge approximately 30 minutes before you use.

Go to the Google Play Store and download the Smart Watch Notification center or Extension. The smart watch notification center  allows you to control your Smart Watch 2 features like Gmail, Sms Notification’s, Watch UI(User Interface) and lot more. When you download a application you need to download it via Google Play store and install it to your phone.

When receiving text message it vibrates and show the message for few seconds and then it will go back to the clock with dim light.

You can use the swipe gestures to see the applications and for the notification you can use the drawer gesture or swipe down gesture.

There is some glitch on the smart watch and also depends between your watch and the mobile devices that you have. It takes time to load sometimes but if you going to refresh your both devices by power cycle it does do the trick.

Few applications are free on the Google Store but hoping that their will be a lot of free applications compare for the one have a price and especially that does not require a real time sync between devices. Which I mean a built in Applications.

About the Smart Watch face clocks. They are good design but I recommend also to add more face clocks for better user experience.

 

Over all the Sony Smart watch is good deal for those in budget and starters that want to experience the Advance Clock or Smart Watch features. If you more on gesture touch and colored screen I recommend this product. Another counterpart products for the same price is the Pebble Watch but disadvantage is that it is not a colored screen but it has a same IP57 feature. But if you spear budget I recommend the Samsung Galaxy Gear but the problem is that it last for shorter period of time.  The cost of the Smart Watch is around 8000PHP or $175 and 107.37 GBP but much better in amazon.com or in any shopping website.
