Sony Ericsson MBW-200 Evening Classic Review

Introduction and Design
Introduction and design:

Portable watches first appeared in 15th century and six hundred years later, they are still overused personal accessories, because they can be both appealing and convenient without necessarily being outrageously expensive. The Bluetooth wristwatch series of Sony Ericsson first rolled out several years ago and are, unfortunately, not as posh and dainty as, say, TAG Heuer, Rolex or RADO. However, the devices allow the pleasing opportunity to discreetly keep an eye on incoming calls or control your phone audio player. And of course, they track time. Today, we are taking a closer look at the Sony Ericsson MBW-200 Evening Classic, a device of the “modern ladies” lineup of devices of the manufacturer. What this should mean, in our opinion, is that the device needs to be elegant and stylish…

The latter words can be hardly found in a sentence that refers to products of the company. For an instance, most their cell phones can be best described as having youthful, aggressive and even attractive design, although always looking somewhat rough and edgy. The same goes for the Bluetooth watch as well, since it is too large and hefty for women and their fine wrists. Even if you happen to be OK with the mere size, the wristlet is rather unsightly and the fact it´s a leather strap doesn’t help much. The inlaid gem, placed where the “12” digits are, doesn’t contribute towards a more appealing overall look either. Charger connectors are below and yes, the watch comes with rechargeable battery that utilizes a small “clip” and standard Sony Ericsson wall-charger.

We do not have any gripes concerning the buttons – they are large enough and easy to press. The ones on the left hand side of the device are used to control your phone audio player, while those on the opposite side are function keys.
