try handtec.co.uk

I was told it shipped , but it has not arrived yet ... I did just get an email
stating my SBH52 order is held up do to being sold out . This is upsetting
considering I pre-ordered it from there site & was given a ship date of OCT 2'nd
& now I'm being told I have to wait til the end of the month ... :mad:

I got my sbh52 from handtec.co.uk and it arrived within a day to the US, the sw2 from clove took 10days after it showed on clove site , they shipped it via royal mail with no tracking and i recieved it on saturday

maybe I should cancel my SBH52 order & order it someplace else , HHHMMM
I am hoping my SW2 shows up sometime this week . I also Pre-ordered the
DSC-QX10 & the LCS-BBM ( Soft caring case for the QX10 ) directly from
Sony & they have already been delivered .

I use mine as a "remote screen" for my Ultra, as I don't have it on me most of the times (handbag, messenger, left it in a drawer at work etc), so I don't miss a call or a message.
I yet have to understand how WatchIt works, but until now, apart from WhatsApp, every single notification (email, Gmail, missed call, message) has its own app on the phone and it works perfectly.
I second the fact that the screen could have been sharper, that mails should have shown pictures etc, but hey, I treat it mainly as a watch, I guess it would be appropriate to call it a "watch with benefits" :D

There is one thing that's bothering me though: when I'm driving, I usually hook up my SBH52 before starting the car, but when I make a call using the watch (with the SBH52 attached) the phone puts the sound in its earpiece instead of the bluetooth headset.
Similarly, if I choose to not connect the SBH52, I would expect the phone to go on speaker if I make a call through the watch, but that goes through the earpiece as well.

It seems like a super stupid thing to me.
We should be able to set a priority for what we need, i.e.
1) Bluetooth 2)Loudspeaker 3)phone.
That way it would definitely work.
Or, just give me a button on the watch to switch from one to the other.
I keep my phone on a rubbery carpet where the handbrake is, I don't want to look down every time I make a call just to choose the loudspeaker.

Anybody with me?

    I found out that when the SBH52 is connected the phone call is passed to it but just if I use the watch to directly make the call.
    If I use the phone the call starts in phone mode, and that's stupid too I think.
    If you receive a call you can actually answer with the watch, reject the call or mute the phone, but why the hell don't we have an option for loudspeaker?? I mean, if it's not possible to switch between modes during the call just give me the option to choose whatever I like best in preferences...

    There is an app called call handling pro in the market search for it via smart watch app on the phone.I use that and it's way better than Sony's

    Yeah I tried it and asked for a refund 5 minutes later.
    I get it that I have to uninstall the Call Handling app from Sony, but I don't get that I can't make phone calls from Call Handling Pro.
    Basically you can't call, you just answer.
    And trying that, you can choose to answer already in loudspeaker mode (in settings), you can answer and then put it on loudspeaker, but if you choose to put it back in headset mode, it hangs up... WTF??
    I don't know, seems like a good idea, but poorly developed in many ways...

    Does anyone have instructions on how to adjust the size of the metal smart watch 2 band?

    I just did it...it's very simple. On the back side of watch band you will see pointing arrow.

    here we go some video:



    BTW guys....compare to my Smart watch 1 and pebble, Smart Watch 2 is much more solid build.,and very fast !!! The screen responding like on the phone !

    nfc or bluetooth failed

    Hey guys, I just have the worse day of my life. Just bought myself the smartwatch 2 only to found out that my Zu is unable to connect to it. Having tried to update the smart connect app but it still won't Connect. Then I tried to use my galaxy to my surprise, no problem there. Then I tried to sent picture via bluetooth from galaxy to Zu but failed. I already reset the phone but problem still persist. Any help is much appreciated.

    Is NFC and bluetooth turned on? Are you using a custom ROM? Can you try pairing it manually?

    The default "discoverable" time on the Xperia ZU is 10 seconds. Not enough for pairing. By the time you turn on bluetooth, put the phone down, initiate pairing with another device, it's timed out. I had to go in and just that setting before I was able to pair the ZU with my Bose headset.

      Factory reset the watch itself.
