The Sony SmartWatch accessory has received a firmware update today. One of the big improvements is that the watch face will now be visible at all times, even when the watch is in standby. This is a sensible addition, especially given it is meant to be worn on the wrist, it would seem silly to wake the device just to see the time. We do wonder what kind of hit this will have on battery life though.
Other additions include improvements to the Music Player and Weather apps as all as third-party apps which means they should run quicker and more smoothly. The Endomondo Sports Tracker is also now available in the recommended applications list. SmartWatch owners should receive a notification to download the update, if not you can always head over to Google Play.
