Garmin will now offer an app extension for the Sony SmartWatch 2 via the Google Play store allowing users to benefit from navigation information via Bluetooth from an Android smartphone running the Garmin Xperia Edition or the NAVIGON Android app.
Global vice-president for mobile business at Garmin-Joern Watzke explained :“We’re thrilled to bring Garmin’s premium navigation features to Xperia smartphones,”-“Garmin Xperia Edition boasts a comprehensive navigation feature set not available from other apps. The unique integration with Sony SmartWatch 2 provides users a seamless experience that extends smartphone navigation in the car to displaying pedestrian directions on the user’s wrist.”
With the Garmin Navigation App, Sony Smartwatch 2 will be able to display a detailed map, giving users current location details along with their destination route and a zoom function which can be accessed by a button press on the watch to get more closer details of your maps and route. Garmin’s Xperia Edition and Sony Smartwatch 2 extension would probably be made available this March 2014.
