A SmartWatch That’s Almost Too Smart
If you are like me, you’ve likely drooled over the gadgets in the latest action/sci-fi flick. In fact, the time pieces from Mission Impossible, XXX, and Bond movies were before their time but now Sony brings it all to you.
SmartWatch from Sony connects to Android smartphones via Bluetooth™ and lets you control key functions without removing your smartphone from your pocket or bag. With just a tap, touch, and swipe, SmartWatch turns from a watch displaying the time to a remote information center for your Android smartphone.
A growing number of apps are available for download through Google Play – including those for social updates, workouts and music – all customized for the 1.3-inch OLED SmartWatch touch screen. Who does’nt like that? While SmartWatch works with these existing apps, Android developers can create apps specifically for the device. SmartWatch works with most Android (2.1 and above) smartphones.
“SmartWatch is the first of many Smart Extras that seamlessly connect and expand the smartphone’s reach and user experience,” said Paul Hamnett, President and Head of Customer Unit, North America, Sony Mobile Communications. ”
The durable SmartWatch is dust proof and splash proof and comes with a black rubber wristband included in the box. Wristbands in five additional colors are available for purchase. SmartWatch’s design includes a rear mounted clip, so it can be removed from the wristband and attached to clothing or a belt. It retails for 149.99.
