SmartWatch firmware update released (and you can still get a free device)

Last week we released a firmware update for the Sony SmartWatch, which includes new UI updates and improved performance. And if you’re a developer, don’t forget that you can get a free SmartWatch device if you come up with a good idea and plan for a new SmartWatch extension. If you submit a new SmartWatch enabled app to Google Play before June 26, we will also send you a Smart Wireless Headset pro as a bonus! We might also ask to promote your app in Sony’s social media channels… Check out the video above, and the Free SmartWatch campaign page to learn more!

Music player and 8 Game extensions for SmartWatch now available as open source

As part of ongoing contributions to the open source community, we’re today releasing two extensions for the Sony SmartWatch as open source. The first one is an extension to the Music player, which makes it possible to control the music player in your phone from SmartWatch. The second extension is called 8 Game, a puzzle game that can be played on the SmartWatch. With our Sony Add-on SDK, you can use these apps as a base for creating your own music player extension or game for SmartWatch. This is an excellent opportunity to get an innovative edge on your competition, and to get better visibility as your app will be easy to find for all SmartWatch users.
