You can officially retire your old Sony smartwatch to the Box of Aging Tech Things.
Is this the official end of the SmartWatch 3 as we know it? The square-faced, athletic smartwatch will not be seeing its official update to Android Wear 2.0, much to the chagrin of the few die-hard fans who have stuck around because — well, it’s kind of a classic, not to mention it was equipped with one of the biggest batteries available in Android Wear (420mAh!).
SmartWatch 3 SWR50 supports up to Android Wear 1.5. Android wear 2.0 and onwards are not supported
If you’re holding out hope, there’s still a petition going strong for Sony and Google to revert on their stance. But consider that the SmartWatch 3’s square face and bulky body are officially a relic of a different time in Android Wear. Although, let’s be honest, the future looks equally as bulky.
