So I'm looking into buying my first smartwatch and the Sony smartwatch 1 is only 90 bucks but I was wondering if you guys know it will work with this phone. Specifically android 4.4 if you have this accessory and can help me that'd be great. Thanks

Yeah but Sony smart watches suck. I got the sw2 for free (I review products) and I stopped using it after writing the review.

Primary reasons:

Poor screen res
Lack of useful apps
Doesn't always notify when getting a call/text/etc
Have to install Sony app that has hidden data collection defaulted to on
Have to install an app for everything (an app for text notifications, an app for phone notifications, etc)
No built in speaker/mic
No camera and camera control app isn't that useful
And finally
Periodically enters low power mode and stops updating the time. That's right. It doesn't even do that properly.

Also newegg often sells them for 69.99 so 90 seems high.

Edit : forgot that exchange notification app is only compatible with Sony phones
