There are a number of smart watches currently in development and available to purchase at the moment. Such as the Pebble smart watch which is taking the crowd funding website Kickstarter by storm, raising over $8 million.
However if Sony wants to keep its SmartWatch a viable competitor to the new products arriving, it will need to pull out all the stops. One such update Sony hopes will help sell its new SmartWatch, is the release of two new extensions to the development SDK for their Sony SmartWatch. Which brings with it a music player and puzzle game extension.
The Sony SmartWatch music player extension can be used to control music playback on the phone from your Sony SmartWatch. Showing the track currently being played and allowing you to navigate through tracks and control the volume by linking to your smartphone.
The open source version of the Music extension works with the Android vanilla Music player or by emulating media button key events. For more information jump over to the Sony Developer website. Lets hope Sony keeps up the good work and releases more SDK support extensions soon. View a review of the Sony SmartWatch below.
