Let's start with the only thing it's missing and get it out of the way. For its low price and x7 zoom to go together, the wide angle went off the list. So it starts at a relatively narrow 34mm. Now we can go on to the good stuff. The list of features making this camera do everything is very long. Here are the headlines and brief explanations:
Easy shooting mode - in which helpful instructions are displayed on screen.
iAuto mode - letting the camera identify the scene and set itself accordingly.
Face detection - focuses and exposes for best results of people in the photo.
Smile shutter - for avoiding long faces in your shots.
Anti-Blink - for avoiding shut eyes in your shots.
Sweep Panorama - just click and hold while you sweep across a wide scene, and you get an automated stitched panorama. There's more, but I think the list I included is long enough. In short, Sony tried to include as many features as they can to take decision making out of your hands, and allow you to concentrate on composition alone. This makes the W370 less appealing for advanced photographers, but highly suitable for many beginning photographers.
