The Sony Smartwatch 2 does not run Android Wear, but it’s still a great smartwatch to pick up. Also one of the cheapest smartwatches available right now. Coming in at just $84.50, it’s a great one to pick up. The Sony Smartwatch 2 actually launched ahead of Android Wear – hence why it doesn’t run Android Wear. It allows you to get notifications, calls, and so much more right there on your wrist. There are also apps available for the Smartwatch 2, like Facebook. So you are able to scroll through your newsfeed on Facebook, from right there on your wrist. Don’t forget Gmail, Twitter, and many other apps that are available as well.
While the Sony Smartwatch 2 may not look like the best smartwatch available, for under $100 it’s perhaps the best one available. You can swap out the straps, like you can on most smartwatches. And it’ll take any regular watch strap. So you can get yourself a nice leather strap to put on the Smartwatch 2 and be on your way. If you’d rather pick up an Android Wear powered smartwatch, Sony has your back there with the Smartwatch 3. A very capable smartwatch with GPS and WiFi, and it’s currently available for $99.99 on eBay.
