Sony SmartWatch 2 with NFC connectivity
OMG! what is happening to the technology. I still remember those days, when people used to have pagers for communications. Those days when Super Mario was launched. Imagine those days and compare it with today. Technology has taken a huge leap. A little while ago I wrote about the WearIT Sports Watch and now comes the Sony SmartWatch 2 with NFC connectivity. Sony has mentioned the SmartWatch 2 as a second screen for your Android Smartphone and as well as it will enhance existing phone functionality. Below are some of the tasks you can do with the Sony SmartWatch 2 without even reaching for your phone.
- Handle your calls by a simple touch of your wrist
- Take a photo remotely from your SmartWatch, using a smart camera app
- Control your presentations remotely using Presentation Pal
- Taking a run or on the bike? Select a mapping app on SmartWatch to check your route with a quick glance at your wrist
- Read previously downloaded e-mails when not connected to your phone
- Use lifestyle apps like Runtastic to map and instantly track your fitness activities on the go
Imagine how easily you can adjust the tracks and volume on your music player without ever taking your phone from your pocket. Hmm now that is something really which I personally like. Here is what Sony has to say:-
“The future of wearable devices is incredibly bright with analyst research predicting 41 million ‘smart’ watches will be sold by 2016,” continues Persson. “We have over 200 unique apps dedicated for Sony SmartWatch with over one million downloads to date and we are continuing to work with our strong developer network to deliver ever more compelling smartwatch experiences.”
