Sony SmartWatch Can Perfectly Sync with Your Android Device

April 13, 2012, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Sony has introduced a quirky SmartWatch with more important things than just the ‘time’ to show off. This wrist-watch, rather the wrist-band, has a touch screen display that can be a miniature version of your tablet or phone. The device can handle Twitter, Facebook, e-mail, text messages and weather.

The SmartWatch touts a 1.3 -inch OLED touch screen, which can be synced with Bluetooth to a tablet or phone.

The requirement is that the higher device should run on the Google’s Android OS. But you may not be able to type in a full fledged status update or tweet through your SmartWatch – not yet.

However, you can read through an important mail in an instant or easily check your local weather updates.

SmartWatch can also give a preview of the caller on your phone buzzing in your pocket. You may also even pick up the call and start talking immediately, if you have a Bluetooth headset on you.

The Sony SmartWatch may have to compete with the likes of similar products from Pebble and WIMM one. Although not entirely similar in purpose, Apple’s Nano and Motorola’s Motoactv are also racers in the segment.

The SmartWatch also has a long-named predecessor from Sony – the Sony Ericsson LiveView Phone Remote Watch.

The latest Sony gadget has not passed through a decisive review yet. But then, the device has already debuted at Sony’s retail stores for an asking price of $150. The new device will soon debut the online stores for the same price.

We also hear Sony is providing transposable wristbands in white, blue, grey, green and pink at $20 a piece.

Are you getting one for yourself?
