Since you have a bluetooth headset , just answer the call from there .

Smart watch don have a microphone nor speaker , so its logic to doesnt have a pick up call option .

Yeah I know the Bluetooth can answer. In the manual it shows the answer icon. I'm just wondering why its not coming up. Do I need the xperia s to get that function. ? Does anybody see the answer icon

Yes I can answer my phone with the watch! But you can't talk just have to pick up the phone to talk.

I have the Smartwatch for a few days now and I'm mostly happy with it.

What I'm missing:

- ability to adjust vibration lenght and interval, the small short vibration for notification is not enough. It should be custom vibration and vibration repeat every X seconds/minutes
- ability to let the display blink for new notifications to see that that the watch wants something from you

1. When you get it do not install every app out there it will make you disconnect on a regular basis.

2. This smartwatch does not store any apps it just replicates itself from your close-by phone. (not a tip but just a fact)

3. Just because you can display every app as a widget doesn't mean you should. I found my watch is really stable with just 1 or 2 widgets. (I have 21 apps on my watch and it works great with my T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S2)

List is as follows:
  • News Events
  • Messaging
  • Calendar Reminder
  • Missed Call
  • Facebook
  • Call Handling
  • Music Player
  • Weather
  • Find Phone
  • Mode Changer
  • Phone Book
  • twitter
  • Vfinder
  • TicTacToe
  • Swatch Beats (Useless)
  • Gmail Notifier
  • Notify Smartwatch (still trying to see what this does)
  • App Widget Display (works great to activate voice)
  • Phone Search (Buggy)
  • Manevi (Dunno but have it)
  • Presentation Pal (still haven't used)

4. Keep the damn charger cable in your car unless you walk often you never leave your car at home. This way its readily available when needed. Can't order the cable due to none in stock at Sony.

5. Carry an extra battery for your phone because your battery life will tank when you have your watch and Bluetooth headset tethered to your phone all day long.

Hope you enjoyed these quick tips!
How did you get the App Widget Display to activate voice search? I've tried everything! Can't get it to use the Google Search widget at all. Did you download a specific voice search activation widget?

I actually was going to sit down over the next few weeks or so and try and get something cooked up using to SDK for this very function. It's sorely needed

I'm looking for this one, and don't get it on Google play - App Widget Display

Order my smartwatch on expansys on 18.4 - got it on 19.4. Great!

Does anyone know if there is an APP or a widget for the watch to get an ALARM clock.
I would like to have a vibration alarm at a specific time! Anyone.

I got my watch today, where is the viewfinder app? I found a couple on the store but none of them seem to show on the watch?

Edit: Found this but apparently this version osn't compatible with my device??? COuld it be because I'm running CET generic .73 firmware?
