The SmartWatch 2 has been designed to link with almost any Android smartphone with the use of Near Field Communication (NFC) technology and give users access to emails, notifications, maps and music control on the 1.6-inch watch screen, The Sun reports.

Sony's spokesperson predicts that 41 million smartwatches, which is also waterproof and has an in-built camera, will be sold by 2016.

He further said that there are over 200 unique apps dedicated for the SmartWatch with over one million downloads adding that the company is working to deliver ever more compelling smartwatch experiences.

According to the report, Sony was one of the first companies to have stepped in the wearable technology market when it had launched its first SmartWatch last year, which reportedly turned out to be a flop due to its clunky software.
