Learn How to Create Watch Faces for the Sony SmartWatch 2

Sony jumped into the pool relatively early when it comes to smart watches and wearables. With a history extending back to 2010 with the LiveView, it was not until the SmartWatch 2 that Sony had a rather solid offering with plenty of customization and aftermarket flexibility. If you have one of these devices strapped on your wrist right now, or want to get some development experience with wearables, you’ll certainly want to check out XDA Senior Member naheel azawy‘s tutorial on creating your own watch faces for the SmartWatch 2.

Naheel azawy keeps the tutorial brief and simple, without skimping out on thoroughness. Each individual step is clearly labelled and, if appropriate or needed, is accompanied by helpful screenshots going through the process. The tutorial also teaches a couple of additional tricks if you choose to incorporate them into your watch face, such as adding a date, reordering your watch faces, and having multiple watch faces in one app. Naheel azawy provides all the links to the resources you need to get started, such as Eclipse, the Android and Sony SDKs, and a resource package.

Naheel azawy’s tutorial is definitely a great starting point for both beginners and the experienced alike looking to get started on making their own watch faces for the SmartWatch 2. So if this has piqued your interests, put on your creative hat on and head over to the original thread to get started.

New Snapdragons: Some Context & Contrast

It hasn’t been a good year for Qualcomm so far. Every device featuring the Snapdragon 810 has had a less-than-stellar fate, be it because of overheating complaints or actual decreased sales. HTC is in a particularly worrisome situation, and Sony’s Z4 is slipping down Japanese charts just over a week after its release. The G Flex 2, Mi Note Pro and Z3+ all saw complaints as well. Even MediaTek is seemingly getting an advantage over this.   But a particularly...
