It controls your music app, play, pause etc but it doesn't allows you to go through your library to search for your song. Maybe its a limitation of the app or because the screen is too small, hence they don't include that ability. It is compatible to our note 2.

The PowerAmp-App for the Smartwatch 2 can do all this and more (in combination with PowerAmp installed on your Phone).

Love this App! I'm using it every day

To your other question about compatibility:

The Sony Smartwatch 2 is made to work with every Android Phone running Android 4.0 and higher.

For $100 it's an awesome gadget. Compared to the smartwatches out right now it is a best-of-all-worlds device.
- Color touch screen.
- Perfectly visible in direct sunlight.
- Always-on watch face.
- Fully customizable watch faces.
- 3-4 day battery life.
- Non-proprietary charger.
- Water resistant.
- Compatible with any standard 24mm watchband.
- Large selection of apps in the app store.
- No hard limit on number of apps and watch faces you can have (unlike 4 or 8 limit with pebble).
- With the right apps, can forward any and all notifications from your phone.
- Can also display most widgets from your phone on your watch using remote widget app.

The only downsides depending on your point of view:
- Shorter battery life than pebble, still longer than almost any other smart watch
- No microphone or speaker
- Support may wane now that android wear is out, but so far holding steady

I got one for Christmas, and broke it two weeks ago. I went less than a week before buying another one, I liked it that much. Conversely, I had a pebble steel for three days and returned it.
