Sony SmartWatch receives update, including enhanced watchface visibility

Sony has announced a software update for its SmartWatch that will bring several enhancements. One of the improvements is also one of the most requested by the community -- making the watch face always visible. Many members of the Smart Watch community requested that even in stand by mode they wanted to see the watch and Sony has listened, which is good to see.

Other enhancements include:

  • Increased usage support in the SmartWatch application
  • Endomondo Sports Tracker is now in the recommended apps list
  • Improvements to Music Player, Weather and many third-part apps

Current SmartWatch owners will receive a notification when the update has been pushed, but it is also available from Google Play.
