Sony's Smartwatch? Well the little device that could is getting a huge update today from the folks at Sony that should bring a host of new features, as well as fix tons of bugs with the Android-powered smartwatch. This isn't quite that Pebble Watch we've been keeping an eye on, but the update is worth a quick look.
Pebble, the e-paper Bluetooth watch that's broken the crowdsourcing record with an incredible $7.9 million raised. The designers have said from the beginning that they intend to allow app development for the watch, which is capable of pairing with Android and iOS devices. The first confirmed developer to take up the challenge is FitnessKepper, whose RunKeeper app has been downloaded millions of times on Android alone.
Pebble smart watch project on Kickstarter, and almost immediately the organizers reached their $100,000 goal. They've raised just a bit more than that since then: a million dollars in just a little over 24 hours, and almost 1.5 million at this point. To celebrate thier success, they're adding in an extra feature. When the watch enters production later this year, it'll be waterproof. The organizers say that it won't be a dive watch, but you'll be able to shower or swim with it without worry.
Pebble smart watch got almost instantly funded on Kickstarter, Sony is back in the game with its latest take on the wearable smartphone augmenter. As promised, the SmartWatch that we saw at CES (and which is completely and totally not the underwhelming LiveView watch from last year) is now shipping to the good old US of A. $149.99 gets you a Bluetooth-paired secondary screen for your Android phone, complete with alerts, alarms and other goodies. And yes, the Sony SmartWatch will pair with any Android device regardless of manufacturer.
The Pebble watch is currently in the concept stage, but with a Kickstarter campaign that's nearing completion, it looks like it'l be hitting stores before the end of the year.
allowing the MotoACTV to pair with and work with all Android devices running 2.1 Eclair or later. Because leveraging your brand should always come second to leveraging your hardware, right, Moto? The update is scheduled to hit the Google Play Store later today.
Sony has just unleashed their new Xperia Smartwatch and if you're wondering how it compares to their first attempt, the LiveView, or rivals like the WIMM One you'll want to read on for details and impressions. This little Android-powered watch is quite unique with its OLED touchscreen display, but is it worth the buy? That is the question.
WIMM One, I'm Watch, Sony Ericsson's new Xperia SmartWatch and the MOTOACTV, you'd think there was some kind of trend going on. Add one more to the pile with niche Chinese OEM Phaeton Nice Electronics and their unnamed Android watch, which ARMDevices got a look at on the CES floor. But wait a minute - this is more than your typical Bluetooth-pairing, agenda-updating fancy pedometer: this device runs a full and mostly unmodified Android 2.2 OS with a cellular connection.
Sony isn't content to put Android in your pocket with its new Xperia ion and Xperia S phones; it also wants to put the Google OS on your wrist with the new Xperia SmartWatch. Packing a compact multitouch color OLED display, the SmartWatch hooks up to your smartphone via Bluetooth 3.0 and can show incoming call details, Facebook and Twitter updates, messages, calendar alerts and more.
