Default Smartwatch SW2 and Android 2.3.x

Hi, I have Smartwatch MN2 and looking on SW2. My phone is Xperia Play with Android 2.3.7 - I don't want to update to 4.0+, cause gaming with Xplay on ICS+ is horrible. I know that officialy is everywhere written you need Android 4.0+, but I want to know if watches cannot connect to Android 2.3 and really need ICS+ or if they could be connect well but some features and apps don't work on GB. I'm going to buy new phone in about a year or two probably, but now I still want my old Xplay cause playing on touchpads which is built into phone is simply ingenious

Try to download the official app from the playstore . If it works you could have a chance.
I think that there will be some things you can do because some bluetooth things were changed at 4.x. and a lot things are running at your phone , because the apps are running on your phone and not at your SW
Maybe you could try the SW at you your local store?

nop this won't work because the watch needs the android 4.0+ bluetooth. i know a guy who tried it and the watch refused to work
