Sony to launch new silver metal and FIFA editions of Smartwatch 2

Sony is ready to unveil two new editions of its Smartwatch 2 wearable, revealed UK retailer Clove.

The Japanese electronics giant will be launching a FIFA edition of Smartwatch 2 to celebrate FIFA World Cup 2014, of which it is an official partner and a version with silver metallic band on-board. As Sony already has a Black metallic version of the watch on sale, the introduction of silver version isn’t really surprising. The company is just adding a new option for consumers, who aren’t really fond of black option.

The FIFA edition of the smartwatch 2 will sport a fabric wristband with lime green and yellow colours reminiscent of the Brazilian flag. Rest everything about the FIFA edition and the silver metal edition are same as a normal retail Smartwatch 2.

Originally introduced in July last year, Sony SW2 acts as a companion device for Android smartphones. The wearable can handle calls, acts as a smartphone camera remote, show notifications from phone and track your fitness activities.  It features a 1.6-inch display, Bluetooth 3.0, NFC and is water-resistant. After a recent update, Smartwatch 2 has improved a lot and packs a few new features.

Clove has revealed that both new editions will sell for 132 GBP ($215) when they go on sale in early-March, 2014. There is no information on the international availability of these editions but we are tracking the story and will let you guys know if anything new pops up.
