Now that connected watches have officially become the 'it' gadget to innovate (see: Pebble, I'm Watch and Apple), Sony can't just sit back and let its SmartWatch quietly finds its footing. Which is why the company's beefing up the user experience and issuing an app update that bolsters the Android timepiece's functionality while also giving it several new, pretty faces. Currently live on Google Play for all users to download, the software update adds notification previews for emails, texts and social media alerts, six watch face options ranging from retro to contemporary styles, a more accurate battery gauge and streamlined search. There's now also nearly 200 compatible apps users can choose from to extend the SmartWatch's functionality. You can go ahead and grab the update now from Play or sit back and wait for it to hit your wrist.
