Smartwatches have come a long way in a relatively short amount of time...

I wonder where we'll be in the next few years & what'll be considered "outdated".

Gear 2 is a nice watch, I liked it for the long lasting battery and ir blaster.
But the OS has little support

Got another Smartwatch delivered today...
Can't use it until Tuesday though.
sigh

I have another arriving tomorrow that I'll be able to use immediately.

Then that'll be the end of my Smartwatch purchasing...at least until Google I/O!

So after using the Sony Smartwatch 2 for about a day, I must say that I'm very impressed!

Pros:
> Always On like on LG's Android Wear devices
> Visible in direct sunlight unlike most other Smartwatches
> 4-5days of battery life only beat by Pebble
> Notifications re-sync when reconnected unlike any other Smartwatch
> Price around 99$ on Amazon
> Charges using standard Micro USB unlike most that require a dock
 
Cons:
> App support is quite limited (and likely won't be getting any more) though the basics are there
> Looks like a Smartwatch with [HOME], [BACK] & [MENU] buttons.

Overall, if you're looking for a Smartwatch with basic functionality, don't need a ton of Apps, that'll be fairly rugged & last you almost from Monday-Friday on a single charge, you really can't beat the Sony Smartwatch 2!

Will it be my primary Smartwatch...not a chance (LoL), however, if there was a fire (knocks on wood) & all my other Smartwatches were destroyed, I wouldn't be disappointed with this being the only one that survived.

By comparison, I can't say the same for the:
> Sony Smartwatch 1
> Pebble
> LG G Watch (original)
> Moto 360
If all I was left with were any of those, I'd be very upset & quickly go out to buy something else.

+John Burke No Android Wear device has that kind of battery life, I agree. I'm not sure what you mean by notifications re-sync. My notifications seem to sync when the watch is re-connected to the phone i.e. they dismiss or appear depending on what's left on the phone. Perhaps you mean something else.

Charges using standard Micro USB - unless your Micro USB is different from mine, I plug in my watch the exact same way I plug in my phone. USB straight to the device. No dock necessary.

Always - On - It goes ambient but screen stays on. Transflective display so visible in direct sunlight.

Watchbands - sucks. But I believe they made a sort of 'dock' or 'enclosure' that holds the watch part and allows you to use your own standard straps. I'm not a fan of this and it definitely counts as a con.

Not hating on you for preferring SW2 over SW3 as I prefer to see people choose different devices for their own reasons as opposed to the blind following that you'd see from some.

Also, waiting for I/O!

You know you've got a problem when the # of Smartwatches on your desk hits double-digits!

(though technically one of them belongs to the Mrs, so I'm not quite there yet...or that's at least what I tell myself, shush)

Got some awesome fully custom credit card-sized plastic 2-sided business cards plus some sweet Android-themed playing cards from +Kahil Nettleton​​​ & +Spiderfly Studios​!

Note: "HERO" is the company I work for, I'm not implying that I'm a hero, LoL

Extremely overpriced - 12.68$ for 2 slices of pepperoni w/ a fountain drink Extremely slow - took almost 15mins Extremely greasy - took 5 napkins to soak up the grease from the 2 slices Extremely weak dough - tasted like cardboard Extremely disappointed - I rarely leave reviews, especially not negative ones, however, this one feels like my responsibility to save people from eating here!

Nice place during the day with great activities year round but once the sun goes down the punk kids come out!
