Major Update for the Sony Smartwatch 2 Brings DND and More
With the wearables landscape now dominated by Android Wear and Pebble, it’s understandable if it seems that other wearable devices have faded into the background, and perhaps even forgotten. And with Sony pushing their newest smartwatch, the Smartwatch 3, which runs Android Wear, the Smartwatch 2 and its Sony-developed OS seem to have been put on the back burner. No updates for the device in the last few months certainly makes it seem this way.
But it looks like the Smartwatch 2 hasn’t been forgotten by Sony, as quite a major update has arrived for the device introducing some useful features. One of them is the ability to customize the order of apps in watch’s home screens, a function which, in all honesty, should’ve been available since the beginning. You can now also choose up to three watch faces which you can swipe between on your SW, a neat feature for quickly switching watch faces for different occasions, or for folks who find themselves getting bored of their watch face easily. And the final feature introduced with this update is a ‘Do not disturb’ feature in the settings.
So if you’ve been waiting for an update to come to the SW2, wait no more. You should be receiving an update notification very soon, if not already. And if you have, share your thoughts about the update with us in the comments below.
