    It's a very effective placebo! Watch is currently getting through the day and showing a pretty linear discharge pattern!

    I haven't had any issues for a few days as well. An update to Google Play Services would probably be a better explanation.

    You need to install the Android Wear app first.

    Mpow Swift Bluetooth Earphones Mini-Review

    One of the reasons I bought the Sony Smartwatch 3, was to listen to music while running. To do that I ordered these earphones.

    [​IMG]

    What's in the box?
    1 x Mpow Swift Bluetooth Stereo Headphone
    3 x eartips (small, medium, large)
    1 x micro USB charge cable
    3 x outdoor sport fit stabilizer
    1 x User Manual

    Description:

    Wherever you reach for your personal best, the sweat-proof Mpow Swift Bluetooth Sport headphones keep pace with you. It delivers powerful audio but lets you hear your surroundings when you take it outside and has bright, reflective colors to add a measure of safety when you're out for that nighttime jog or walk.

    Features:

    On-ear controls for calls and music.
    Up to 6 hours of Talk/Playing Time and 185 hours Standby Time.
    Sweat-proof and durable design.
    Compatible with most Bluetooth smartphones, tablets
    On-ear music/call controls help avoid removing earbuds from ear or dealing with tangles wires.
    Three Interchangeable soft ear cushions, just choose the suitable one for your ear and enjoy all-day comfort
    Package included 5 pair fit stabilizers, 2 pairs for indoor leisure activity, and 3 pairs for outdoor sports.

    Pairing the earphones was super easing. By pressing the 'Mpow' button, it started automatically pairing and I just had to search for bluetooth devices on the Smartwatch.

    The earphones provide audio feedback, so you hear this nice lady saying that the earphones were powered on, off or are pairing every time you do one of these actions. I tried to make small talk with her but she kept ignoring me.

    I was impressed on how well the earphones fitted out-of-the-box. If they don't, there are two other pairs of eartips you can try. You also have 3 sets of outdoor sport fit stabilizer (aka ear wings) that help keeping the earphones in place.

    They are way lighter than they look. This helps making them very comfortable. The only issue I had with them was the microphonics (cable noise), since the two earphones are connected with a cable that goes over your neck. While running, you can hear it jumping up and down on your neck, but after a few minutes I managed to adjust them well enough to stop hearing it. They stay neatly in place even while running.

    Sound-wise, I was positively impressed by these earphones, even after reading many positive reviews. I still can't believe that bluetooth earphones this cheap can sound so good. AptX support probably plays a huge roll in this.

    They are marketed as sweat-proof, but they are clearly not water-resistant so they'll need to stay at home on those rainy days.

    PROS:
    • Inexpensive bluetooth earphones
    • Surprisingly good sound quality
    • Very comfortable, even while running

    CONS:
    • Microphonics
    • Not water resistant

    You can use it with almost every android version. If any error comes eliminate it by updating the firmware of watch and for wifi setup instructions check Sony SmartWatch 3 SWR50 Manual.
