Is it possible to answer incoming calls? The manual says you can by touching the phone icon. but there is no phone icon when there's a call coming in. Maybe I'm missing something?

You need to have the call handling smart watch app on your phone.

If you don't have a Sony smartphone you have to use this SW2 extension:

Lucky!
On my stock Galaxy S4 i9505 it never worked.

And if you read the comments on the Google Play you'll find tons of people with the same problem like the OP.

My answer button didn't work either, so I uninstalled the stock call handling app. I then installed call handling pro, it sucked Cuz there was too much lag between someone calling and it showing up on the watch, but the answer button worked. I uninstalled call handling pro, and reinstalled the stock call handling app, and like magic there is an answer button now and it works.

True, the lag appeared in the very latest versions, as now the extension wants to load all the contacts along with their photo, and it takes a long time.
Older version without this feature were enough fast (so I never updated and still use one of them!)
