The Sony MN2SW was possibly the original Android smart watch. This Sony smart watch needs paring to your android phone. They work together at a distance of up to about 10 meters. So they will certainly work together in the same room. But walk out to make a cup of coffee and you will lose connectivity. So it is in fact a remote controlling device for your smartphone.
But there is a positive side. This allows it to be super slim. This is no chunky watch. Its definitely sleek and stylish. There are very few controls needed. And they can all be managed by a tap, swipe, pinch or press. And the screen is responsive enough. This ensures that it all happens effectively.
The Sony smart phone MN2SW can be customized with a whole range of apps. Simply download from Google Play the apps you want and need. You can then read texts, reminders and emails. Or receive Facebook and Twitter notifications.
Of course the next model – the Sony Smartwatch 2 or SW2 – is now available.
