Expert Reviews

The Sony MN2SW is a beauty. If you compare it to the competition (i.e. other smartwatches without stand alone cellular capabilities) within the same price range, this little watch truly stands out. The only problem is it is more expensive than some watch phone models with audio/video recorders (albeit with less refined and desirable looks).

The rationale behind this watch is simple: you almost always bring your phone wherever you go, so you do not need a separate device that can do the same things. What you do need is a watch that can augment—not duplicate or replace—your phone’s features.

Consumer Reviews

Most consumers agree with the rationale of Sony, hence the popularity of this unit. Consumers particularly like the stability (v3.0) and range (32 feet) of the Bluetooth connectivity although they would prefer it if the watch can be connected to more than one Bluetooth device at the same time.

Important Tips to Remember

The watch runs on Android so if your phone uses a different operating system, you can’t benefit from compatibility.

In Closing

Overall, the Sony MN2SW scores a remarkable 9 out of 10. Plus points were given for the refined look, Multitouch OLED display, and high grade Bluetooth. Some points were deducted because it could only connect with 1 device at a time and it did not have recording functions.
