I was looking into getting an android wear device but I will need to make it just a watch without the smart bit sometimes. Is there a quick and easy way of doing this?

I was looking at the Sony smartwatch 3 but I am not definite as to which one to get.

  • @SuperThomasLab My school will not let me have it in lessons unless I can make it a normal watch temporarily.

  • ah OK:-), I don't think it is possible except for shutting down your watch. Sorry to tell you but that's why its a Smart Watch.
