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 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.
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.
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.
