Sony SmartWatch demonstration
Unlike the fitness oriented Motorola MOTOACTV, Sony’s SmartWatch goes in the other direction of being more of a social network driven device – perfect for those teenagers who want to scope what’s going on with their friends without having to whip out their smartphone. Able to connect to any Android powered device via Bluetooth, it’s nice to see the Sony SmartWatch giving its users some control in certain aspects of what we get on our smartphones – like viewing messages, social network statuses, and the weather.
Sadly though, it’s not that Dick Tracey watch we all yearn for seeing that it lacks an internal speaker or 3.5mm headset jack – though, you can still listen to music on the go using a pair of wireless Bluetooth headphones. Nevertheless, it also packs some fitness aspects with its offerings since you can use it to track how long and far you’ve been walking/running. As for its design, we wholeheartedly have to admit that it’s a piece of bling worthy enough to take spaced on our wrists. Looking more like an elegant watch versus some kind of electronics gadget, the Sony SmartWatch has that perfect balance of appeasing a wide array if people.
Expected to retail for $149, it might still be perceived as being too rich for some people to consider, but then again, imagine the kind of looks and questions you’ll get from strangers while using it.

Honestly speaking, I think I'M WATCH, is the best smartwatch ever. It has more features, and about to have it's own market (I'MARKET) apps store. And you can do alot with it. Though very pricey.

Now everyone is doing smartwatches, when will Apple revamp Neno, and add "smart" in it for our iPhones.
*I know this article has nothing to do with Apple, just expressing my opinion.

i agree.. if apple added this to their nano line that wud be extremely functional.. i know sony already did it for android, but apple could out a software update with these major capabilities or just put it in the next nano

Sony is always creative, I am thinking of getting this watch :)
Instead of buying a classic Swatch for about 200$, I'll buy this one which does way more things

woah, lots of thumbs down.
this smartwatch would be a good smartwatch since i guess this is a successor of SE's liveview.
