Android Wear 2.0 on Sony SW3

This petition had 920 supporters

The Sony Smartwatch 3 is an amazing smartwatch with incredible potential. Despite its age, it is still comparable to new watches and is still quite remarkable; however, it is clear Sony doesn't believe so. Despite its release date of October 2014, the devices specifications are up to par with today's Smartwatch standards. It has a Snapdragon 400 equivalent processor, 512 Mb of RAM, and it has NFC capabilities, which can be used with one of Android Wear's newest capabilities: Android Pay. Devices such as the Asus Zenwatch 2 and the Moto 360 2nd Generation have identical specifications; yet, the Sony Smartwatch 3 seems to be the one left out of the game. In some cases, the SW3 outshines the others with its GPS, WiFi, NFC, and IP68 capabilities. Sony made an outstanding watch and I hate to see how companies give up on devices after two years. While other devices may get slow and sluggish, the SW3 is still snappy, responsive, and can last me almost 2 full days of battery life running Marshmallow 6.0.1 on Android Wear 1.5. A forum has been made on XDA Developers (here) where people have also been voicing their opinion and I highly suggest you take a look at that too. So, to Sony, please don't give up on the Smartwatch 3. It's an amazing device and even if a new iteration of the device is announced, this one is still outstanding and should be treated as such. Give the Smartwatch 3 Android Wear 2.0.
