Rated 1 out of 5 by Ricey Love The Idea, Hate the Execution
I got this product and absolutely loved it for about a week. During that week I would have given it a 5-star rating. Unfortunately my phone (a Sony Xperia Z) then prompted me to update to Android 4.3. This ended my joy with my SmartWatch 2.
Ever since the update if my SmartWatch 2 connects to my phone (via bluetooth) it diables both Wifi and Mobile Data which means I can no longer receive e-mails, facebook notifications, or even browse the web. This makes both my phone and the watch useless. As a result I have disabled the bluetooth on my SmartWatch2 so that at leat I have 1 working Sony device.
Despite contacting Sony on numerous occasions they refuse to acknowledge this is a problem for many users. There is a 14 page forum of people encountering exactly the same issue (http://talk.sonymobile.com/t5/Software-Updates/wifi-problem-after-4-3-update-on-xperia-z/td-p/490591) however Sony insists that you repair the software update and it will work again.
Many have tried and this solution DOES NOT work. That leaves me with a very expensive Sony watch that has been sitting in my closet for two months as it is now useless to me. I wish Sony would fix this issue or refund my money but unfortunately they don't stand behind their products. Definitely would not recommend purchasing a SmartWatch2 to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by blackSkull Smart Watch 2 is a great multimedia phone edition.
I purchased a SW2 about a month ago, it has made my life so much easier. The features available add to the ability of my phone. It actually made the phone better. The quick access text feature is my favorite but not by much. I am still amazed by the remote camera app. The rest of the available apps are fantastic as well, the music controls, picture viewer, and another favorite FIND THE PHONE app. One of the best features of the watch is the fact it is a watch, it takes away the need to dig out a phone to look at the time. Thanks Sony, you have made a great product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by logie love it
The watch was easy to set up.And I was on my way within a half hour. It has many features that I keep discovering. The app selection is ok. I am looking at getting a bluetooth headset so I can listen to music. I have the wrong phone to go with the product but the work arounds are of no consequence.
