Sony updates SmartWatch 2 to display custom wallpapers

Sony has rolled out a new firmware update to its SmartWatch 2 to bring custom wallpapers to your wrist. The firmware update also brings support for more languages.

The update brings the firmware build to 1.0.B.5.28/1.0.A.4.11. You can update the app from the Google Play store on your Android phone, and from within the app you can update the firmware on the SmartWatch 2.

Without an Android Wear wrist wear of its own, it looks like Sony is hard at work improving the SmartWatch 2, which competes in the same space as Samsung's Galaxy Gear 2, the Pebble, and Android Wear devices like the LG G Watch, Samsung Gear Live, and the Moto 360 among other wearables.

Is the ability to further customize your SmartWatch 2 with custom wallpapers a noteworthy update for you? Does Sony's latest update make it a bit more competitive with other offerings on the market?
