The SmartWatch is part of Sony‘s Smart Extras for their Xperia smartphones. The SmartWatch connects to an Android phone via Bluetooth and shows you information about incoming calls, and lets you see emails, weather, Twitter and Facebook updates, and even the time. You can even control music playback with the SmartWatch. It has a clip like the one on Apple’s iPod nano, so you can clip it onto your bag’s strap. Or you can buy one of Sony’s optional watchbands, available in several colors, and wear it on your arm. It fits on any 20mm watch strap, if you have one you already like. The SmartWatch doesn’t have a speaker or headphone jack, but you can listen to the music on your smartphone with a Bluetooth headset. You can even buy apps for the SmartWatch from the Android Market. The SmartWatch should be available in Q1 of 2012. The Sony website doesn’t show a price yet.
