Sony Smartwatch 2 – Don’t expect it in July

Sony Smartwatch 2   Dont expect it in July

You knew that already? Yes maybe, but Clove have been taking orders for the Smartwatch 2 with an expected delivery date of July 15th.

Many of you placed your orders, but this morning the following email arrived from Clove Sales which slightly tweaks expectations..

We contact you today regarding your order for the Sony SmartWatch 2.

The release date of the Sony SmartWatch 2 has been put back to September and will not be launching week commencing 15th July as previously stated. The revised arrival date is week commencing 9th September.

At all times we provide the most accurate information we can based on data we are supplied.  It has transpired that the date of the 15th July given by Sony’s distribution arm was incorrect.

We are very sorry. It was never our intention to mislead you on the release date. Your order will be held until launch and dispatched upon launch unless we hear otherwise.

So if you’ve ordered one, get your old Casio calculator watch out the cupboard again, because you’re going to be using it that bit longer yet.

We recently carried a story and Clove stated that the watch would arrive next week, but this has now been updated.

The gadget will go for £120 when it eventually turns up in September. It has a 1.6″ 220 x 176 pixel screen, Bluetooth 3.0 and NFC for wireless connectivity. It can pair up with your phone to provide updates onto the watch.

  • Adso3000 has it also, with rubber instead of leather strap. Whether theirs will arrive any sooner who can say, but they are a reputable company. Clove on the other hand charged my account immediately, even though their own FAQ clearly states that they don’t do that for pre-orders. Stay well clear and order it somewhere else. I just ordered it from Mobilefun, whom I’m bought from many times before and if something goes wrong with the watch and I have to return it, it won’t worry me. Clove promises to give me my money back in 7 business day!!! What is that about, every other store gives it back by the next day AND don’t charge until shipped, especially 2 months before. They just faked an early date to draw people in and hope they won’t bother enough to ask for a refund. I can’t prove that they’re lying, but I’m personally convinced that they are and that’s enough for me.

      Question is did any other retailer put up July as the delivery date, if not, then I think we all know what is going on here. They probably knew it was a mistake but shoved it out to the market anyway… I will just purchase mine from my local Sony shop, easy peasy support. Of course now I will have time to check out the competition also till Sept. I think Sony missed a massive trick here.
