2013-12-04 12.44.15Sony is currently rolling out a major new firmware update for the SmartWatch 2 (SW2). The update to build version 1.0.B.3.46/1.0.A.3.8 brings a number of new additions including new watch faces (we finally get a date with the digital clock), larger fonts, automatic light sensing as well as a new native Stop Watch application.

There has also been a number of much-need improvements to the notification lists and events including “Fast scroll”, a scroll bar and the possibility to mark all as read. Sony also says it has improved stability. It seems like a very worthwhile update and you should be able to launch the new update through the Google Play Store right now.

    Damn…. :/

  • Jesús López Sotelo

    If only sony could implement the Walkman widget. That’ll be awesome.

  • Diego

    The uptade is really good!!! The scroll is much better, and I really apreciate the READ ALL action for notifications.

    My App runs very smooth now in the watch, it seems they improved a lot of things in there!

  • lucasarg

    What about 4.3 for xperia z serie devices???

  • Raj Singh

    I was thinking the same thing. I think it’s a combination of the two… small wrist and larger than usual watchface. Still, I like it but I’ll wait for the next version…
    Mind you, many manufacturers are starting to develop smartwatches so the competition will force each other to up their game.

  • Makiz

    I own the previous Smartwatch and it is thick and uncomfortable (the back side with the clip is awful) I will wait for the next gen too!

  • Veeren

    This yr is considered as golden year for sony user’s…… Good job sony continue releasing good updates for ur line of marvelous devices…..

  • spatch

    Still nothing as nice as the original horizontal digital clock, IMO. I’d like to see the date show up as an option for that watchface.

  • Colby Leong

    This was an update that the Sony Smartwatch 2 really needed, nice works

  • justanotheruser

    I got the update, so far so good, but where’s the STOP WATCH app ??? Nowhere to be found O__o

  • justanotheruser

    OK, found it
    Had to turn it on (enable)
    Settings -> Apps

  • Frode P. Bergsager

    Much better after this update, but still not perfect.
    – Sometimes long delay for messages (between beep on phone and notification on watch).
    – Not possible to disable installed apps in any menu, have to uninstall apps.
    – Movement sensor still disabled?

  • Malik Zaki

    It looks great. flexible oled tech?

  • Tech Gospel

    Small wrist. The SW2 isn’t large for a men’s watch at all. It’s actually on the smaller side at 42mm (Most men’s watches are 42-45mm) The previous SmartWatch was quite small for a men’s watch at 36mm. Usually unisex watches are 38-40mm. I own both, I love the new one much more. I just wish I could remove the background wallpaper.

  • God Awful

    YOU!! …look god awful! >=(

  • Tech Gospel

    The Sony Smart Camera App no longer works on my Xperia P or Tablet Z with my SW2 after this update.

  • Rene Pedroso

  • Rene Pedroso

    Still need a Tourbillon, Minute Repeater, Moon Phase etc….

    I just tried and it works with my Xperia S

  • Diego

    Press the action key, and the menu with the option will deploy!

  • Rene Pedroso

    I cannot seem to figure it out. Can you tell me which apps this works with. I am assuming the action key is the one with the three vertical dots. Maybe a step by step for dummies, lol.

  • Tech Gospel

    Camera app was updated yesterday. :) Works again on mine too

  • fried_egg

    Has anyone got a working facebook extension?
