Announced on June 25 along with the Xperia Z Ultra, the new Sony Smartwatch 2 features NFC pairing support, as well as the ability to remote-control certain apps on supporting Android smartphones. It's just one of the many Android-connected (or perhaps even Android-based) wearable devices expected this year.
But Sony's offering, it seems, will be among the first to arrive, as UK retailer Clove Technology has today revealed that it'll begin stocking the Smartwatch 2 from July 15, priced at £120 inc. VAT (£100 exc. VAT).
The watch features an Xperia-like interface on a 1.6-inch face at a 220-by-176 resolution. It's also compatible with any 24mm band, allowing you to use an aftermarket wrist strap if you want. It's splash-resistant, but unlike some Sony smartphones, not fully water-resistant.
