Smartwatch 2Clove has updated information suggesting watch won't be available until September

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. UK retailer Clove had originally stated they would be selling the Smartwatch 2 from July 15, and has been accepting pre-orders based on this information. Now though, an updated release schedule suggests that it will not be available until September 9. 

UPDATE 9/7 - The release date of the Sony SmartWatch 2 has been put back to September and will not be launching week commencing 15th July as previously stated. The revised arrival date is week commencing 9th September. At all times we provide the most accurate information we can based on data we are supplied. It has transpired that the date of the 15th July given by Sony’s distribution arm was incorrect.

So, the incorrect information reportedly comes from Sony themselves, but it doesn't necessarily mean the Smartwatch 2 is delayed. Someone may have just got a little ahead of themselves, but nevertheless it's sure to be a bitter blow to anyone who has already pre-ordered. With the new release date, we would expect to get a good look at the finished article at IFA 2013 in Berlin which takes place that same week.

That's going to be too late. If it was coming out to the US this month or maybe the next I would have picked one up. But by then I'm going to be waiting for what Google comes out with

Yup, am sure the next MotoActive will be a Moogle product - assuming it is even branded MotoActive and not some new smartwatch name. Nexus W?

I figured this was too good to be true.

I have the Sony SmartWatch (1), and am looking forward to upgrading to the SmartWatch2.

But, I get so frustrated with manufacturers who feel it necessary to announce products way in advance.

"This is our new product! And we have plans to start selling it....eventually!"

As much as I hate Apple, I really do like their "This is our new product. We're announcing it today...and you can come into the store and buy it tomorrow."

I just need something with Runtastic integration. I was so excited when I saw the Smartwatch2 would actually have it.

How sad. Now they will have to look at their expensive, flashy, high-tech smartphone to see what time it is.

Damn I'm off to America on holiday on (you guessed it) 9th September! Oh well no pre order from me, I'll see whats available when I get back and choose then. I think Sony may have shot themselves in the foot here.
