Android 5.1.1 Wear_3Sony SmartWatch 3 owners have been patiently waiting for the Android Wear 5.1 update to land, but that wait is now over. The Android 5.1.1 update is now rolling for the SW3, if you want to manually upgrade we have attached the OTA URL below.

This new update brings Wi-Fi support that means the watch will be able to carry on getting notifications, even if it is not connected to your phone via Bluetooth. It also includes ‘always-on’ apps (apps stay visible as long as you need them), easy to draw emoji and changes to the launcher so that contacts/apps are only a swipe away. More details on the new features can be found here.

    This ugly smartwatch is just another flop from Sony Mobile.

    Why Sony don’t blow people’s mind with flexible oled smartwatch. It would be so cool if Sony will create a product like Kyocera

    If you hate sooooo much Sony, why d he’ll you come this site & comment, go to your favourite brand site comment there. Don’t ever come back here. go to hell you timel..

    Wow! You are so brave Timel :)

    Personally, I don’t think that SW3 is really a nice watch. I would say opposite. When you see SW2 with metallic band, it looks much much better (source: have one :), but that doesn’t mean, that it is a flop. Did SW and SW2 have many users? No. SImply because these two were here before the mass adoption of wearables. SW2 is IMHO really well done smartwatch, the only problem is the lack of software for it. The way how you can make your own watchface with widgets and the ease of programming your own stuff for the watch is really great.

    I have it installed. The changes are cool. Not as epic as I had made it out in my mind, but nice nonetheless. I really love this watch. It’s great for leaving the phone at home and running. I also actually like the way it looks. It actually looks very low profile and natural on my small wrists. It’s not flashy. It’s understated and that’s the way I like it. Transflective display and gps for running are amazing. Direct sun is no problem. I could go on and on, its just that I find it hard to think I would like a different watch better. I hope Sony sells a ton of these.

  • How did you install it? OTA or manually from the link given above?

  • Sheriyar Shaikh

    Really Amazed By the Features it brings to SW3

  • Joaquin Rosario

    5.1.1 update has been a disappointment. The functionality is great. However, I (and lots of other people) are experiencing random battery drain issues. For example, the watch will act normal for a day or so. And then all of a sudden it starts to drain your battery at a 30 percent per hour rate. You then reboot it and it works again. I’ve tried resetting the watch, disabling features, and nothing seems to work. Hopefully the next android wear update will address this issue.
