Sony Smartwatch 2 update brings custom watch faces, wallpapers and more

One of the biggest gripes with the Sony Smartwatch 2 was that there was no way to customize watch faces at all. Today a new update has arrived that not only adds custom watch faces to the mix, but also provides a built-in editor right within the app. You can still choose from the base set of faces that include the standard digital and analog faces in a variety of styles, but now have the option to create and edit your own faces as well.

Using the editor in the app, you start with a blank slate and can add clocks and widgets to create your perfect watch face. There are a handful of clocks available — various sizes in digital and three analog options. Widgets include dates, new events, Bluetooth indicator, battery life and alarm. Pumping out your own face only takes a few minutes and there are a load of possibilities to make each one your very own.

There's also a new option to change the background wallpaper on your homescreen should you choose to do so. Overall a nice update that should make Smartwatch 2 fans very happy. Grab it now from Google Play.

There is also an update to the Smart Connect Weather that enables a weather widget for the clock face.

Does anyone know if second party apps can load directly on to the watch yet or does it still have to be bluetooth connected in order for the apps to work?

Hmmm.... Wish I had one. Can't afford it. But the update sounds good. Atleast the customization watch faces mean that the user doesn't get bored of seeing the same old face after some time. :-D :-P
