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

So after half an year I bought them and tried it. Smartwatches connect to the phone via bluetooth without any problem but then you need Smartconnect aplication (for GB is only Liveware which is for MN2 and older) and app right for SW2 (Smartwatch SW2 in play store) - in GB play store you can download only Smartwatch app (for MN2). So there is no HW problem, only SW. I flashed ICS rom and Smartwatches working fine - but 512MB RAM with ICS and Smartwatches connected is horrible - gaming is immposible. I want try take Smartconnect and Smartwatch 2 apks and push it to GB but I thing it will not work.
