I tried the watch with an Xperia S vs my Evo 3D. It definitely works better on the Xperia with no dropouts and very stable connection.

However, interestingly, the phonebook app on the Evo 3D shows the photos of the contacts...but on the Xperia S the photos are not displaying...odd!

How long did yours take to come through? Ordered mine through the same program last Friday and have only had the email saying that all of the details would be checked...

What is the name of the smartwatch compatible preinstalled email app on sony phones? Is it possible, to install this app on HTC phones with ICS?
I found SemcEmail.apk in different versions, but Liveware does not find a compatible email program.

As a music remote it can only play/skip/pause music tracks on your current playlist on your phone.

You can dial from the smartwatch yes!

SMS works great at receiving, you can send fixed messages like "call me" etc

To the poster above the contact pictures display on the smartwatch when paired to my xperia s.

I'm also trying to decide if I should get it or not.
Seems handy when you're working out or on the move and want to have a quick look at sms/facebook/etc. without actually holding your phone.
I'll see in a few weeks how I feel about it then.
In the end it's really nice and has some added value.

I'm having real issues with mine. It worked fine for a day, now it's buggered. Here's my mail to Sony support. We'll see if it gets resolved.


Hi there,

I received the SmartWatch from Amazon yesterday, and after a day of it working fine with my Xperia S, it now completely fails to update any of the push notifications (email, Twitter, Facebook, texts), despite the fact it is connected to the phone. Endomondo, Weather and missed calls work. In addition, many of the SmartExtras don't work - they crash when in LiveWare Manager.

As a customer of the initial LiveView (45 wasted on something that literally did not work), I was obviously a little worried that this accessory would be equally deficient. Sadly, it's proving to be the case.

I have re-set the watch and uninstalled then reinstalled everything; both the SmartWatch and LiveWare Manager, and have re-paired the device several times. The support is non-existent on the website (even the manual links to a web page which doesn't exist).

Overall, pretty disgruntled.

I'd be very grateful if you could let me know if there are known issues with the SmartWatch and how I may rectify it.

... sounds like sony failed again at their smartwatch attempt.

i'm hoping they don't screw up the smart wireless headset pro because that's something i've been wanting to get for a while since i lost my mw600.

thanks for sharing it with us, I am really looking forward to get my Smartwatch, but things like this make me be aware of the consequences that it could take of spending 100 on an unfinished and unpolished product that the smartwatch seems to be.
