After teasing that they will Sony be revealing a new SmartWatch, Sony have gone all out announcing the release of the new Sony SmartWatch 2 that packs NFC connectivity, waterproofing and pairing with Android.

As a second-screen companion for the smartphone, it can be used to take calls, release the phone’s camera shutter remotely, or even control your music, and with a IP57 water-resistant rating, it should be fine on some of the Britain’s rainy days.

Packing a 1.6 inch display with a 220 x 176 pixel resolution, the display is a little larger than before, alongside which Sony have also improved the resolution for daylight viewing.

And with that new NFC connectivity, pairing to an Android phone should be a lot easier than before.

The SmartWatch 2 will feature an aluminum design and will be available with a range of strap styles and colours, however as to when it will be available or the for what price, we do not know.
