We have seen all these promises of smartwatches and nothing has tickled our fancy yet. Sony has launched the SmartWatch 2, an update of its Android-based watch, while the competition still seems largely to be in development mode.

We have heard strong rumors of Apple, Google and Samsung all working on some sort of Smart watch. But Sony is already offering a third-generation device in this category with the SmartWatch 2, the company said on Tuesday at the Mobile Asia Expo in Shanghai.
