Sony Mobile has updated the companion app for the SmartBand 2 SWR12 fitness tracker, which brings numerous improvements. The newest version (build 2.1.17) adds a new feature called “Get moving” which gently encourages you to get off your arse if you’ve been sitting idle for too long.
Sony now also allows you to use the heart-rate sensor with third-party apps, which is great to see. Other changes include automatically entering STAMINA mode when the battery is low and a lower vibration setting for notifications. Overall, it seems like a worthwhile update, you can download it right now from the Google Play Store.
