Quick heads up to owners of the Sony SmartWatch 3: over the next few days, Google’s December security update will be available to download. It’s not clear what specific changes will come with the update and it’s unlikely that we’ll ever learn, other than typical patches. Once updated, your SmartWatch 3 will move to firmware M1D64T. It’s always good to see that Sony is keeping up with the updates that it has access to. Everything else, like Android Wear, is entirely out of Sony’s hands as OEMs are only able to customize the front face.
Some have been speculating that Sony might release SmartWatch 4 at CES but I’m less optimistic and in fact believe their wearable efforts along with Android Wear are dead.
