The Sony SmartWatch, also called MN2SW, is a wearable device that connects to an Android smartphone and can display Twitter feeds, SMS, among other things. It is compatible with most Android phones. The watch uses a flexible silicone wristband with multiple colors available.

Sony SmartWatch 2[edit]

The Sony SmartWatch 2, also known as SW2, is a wearable device launched in late September 2013. The SW2 supports working together with any Android 4.0 (and higher) smartphone, unlike Samsung's competing Galaxy Gear smartwatch, which only works with a few of Samsung's own Galaxy handsets. The watch features an aluminum body and comes with the option of a silicone or metal wristband, but can be used with any 24mm wristband. It is 1.65 inches tall by 1.61 inches wide and 0.35 inch thick and weighs 0.8 ounces and sports a transflective LCD screen with a 220x176 resolution. The SW2 connects to the smartphone using Bluetooth, and supports NFC for easy pairing. It is rated IP57 so it can be submersed in water up to a metre for 30 minutes and is dust resistant.[2][3]

At IFA 2014 the company announced the third generation of its smartwatch series, the Sony Smartwatch 3.[4][5] Its processor switched from previous generations' ARM Cortex-M MCU[6] to a ARM Cortex-A CPU.[7]

The SmartWatch 3 has many new features such as waterproof (IP68 rated, not just resistant), improved styling, transition to Android Wear, and introduction of a new wearable platform from Broadcom. This is the first Android smartwatch based on the Broadcom system-on-chip (SoC) platform which includes a 1.2GHz Quad-core ARM Cortex A7 processor (BCM23550), an improved GPS and Sensor processing SOC (BCM47531) capable of simultaneously tracking five satellite systems (GPS, GLONASS, QZSS, SBAS, and BeiDou), the now popular Wi-Fi/BT/NFC/FM quad-combo connectivity chip (BCM43341), and a highly integrated power management IC (BCM59054).[8]
