Garmin's new app turns Sony's SmartWatch 2 into a tiny satnav


We like the idea of hooking our watches into our phones, so when we wander around foreign lands, we don't look like as much of a tourist. Garmin agrees, and has launched a navigation app specifically for Sony's Xperia devices that'll push real-time directions straight to the SmartWatch 2. Acting like a premium satnav, the app offers offline maps, walking directions, real-time traffic and active lane guidance. It'll launch in March, and when you're done with the 30-day trial, it'll cost you $3 a month to get access to the full set of features. Oh, except for the SmartWatch spanning, which'll set you back a further, undisclosed amount, because commerce.
