Second question, what affect does this installing and uninstalling have on previously installed smartwatch apps and settings? Resets the settings but leaves the apps I'm guessing?

Thaks for reporting. if some one provide me the original smart connect app a can search for a solution

When you unistall the app you lose only the Smart connect settings(profile , ecc) and the watchface.
The settings of the smartwach app remain unchanged.

Fun, thanks!

Bit buggy though when trying to delete and move widgets. Sometimes they appear to be gone from the designer, but still show on the watch.

Backing out of the designer then reopening it brings everything back in sync.

    For people using Xposed framework on their phones, I packaged manu0466's patch as a Xposed module.
    No need to install any patched versions of Sony's apps, it works with the standard apps from Google Play.

    Install the provided APK, activate the module in the Xposed installer and reboot your phone.

    It's working perfectly on my Samsung Galaxy Note 2 with the 2 last versions of the watch software.
