It's official: Sony SmartWatch 3 will not receive Android Wear 2.0

Peter, 15 February 2017

The Sony SmartWatch 3 was not on the Android Wear 2.0 update list and the reason was easy to guess. Now you can hear it from the horse’s mouth - Sony’s latest (or should that be last?) smartwatch will remain on version 1.5.

*** SmartWatch 3 SWR50 supports up to Android Wear 1.5. Android Wear 2.0 and onwards are not supported.

Yep, always read the fine print. To be fair, the watch launched in early 2014, while all the watches on the update list are from 2015. This also means that Sony hasn’t released a smartwatch in three years, it seems like it has given up on the segment.

If that is the case, then why is the Apple Watch the most sold wearable in recent times?
