It took 4 years to take take off for smart watches, still unnecessary thing
Excellent news!! I was anticipating a $150 product. 96 USD sounds fantastic. Pretty excited for this =D
[deleted post]Ambitious? It is more like Daydreaming if they continue in the same old way without making any effort. Even the late comer in Android such as Motorola already far exceeded SE. In no time, SE will be even beaten by China brand-less Droid.

all in all, awesome accessory. and for the price it seems like a must have and will complement my x10 perfectly.
Wonder if the watch is on all the time or if you have to press a button to wake it up every time you want to see what time it is / mariodoody
I'm definitely getting one. In places (like where I live) where mobile phone theft by snatching is rampant, this will sure come in handy. Unless of course they start stealing this instead he he. Unlikely though.

As well as being supplied with a tiny capacitive enabled stylus. I read it's water resistant as well so it's great for outdoors activity, water sports, household work and labour work. It's great not having to pull out the phone all the time which you shouln't even be doing in those envoirments.

This product is not useful for me. But considering the use of this product i think SE will produce more bigger screen cell phones.

Mp3 players are also portable, even more than phones, but you still don't wanna take out of you pocket everytime you wanna change track, adjust volume etc etc.
This gadget is great for active people who can leave their pockets or bags. It's evene great in the winter in the winter so you don't need to take out the phone evertime there is a sms, tweet, update, facebook, mail, weather, change songs etc. Specially on capacitive screen which always forces you take of your gloves all the time, something that becomes very annoying in the long run.
This is not for everybody. Mostly active people as you can clearly see on the strap design and the picture of a typical user what buyers Sony are after.
This is the best thing that came from mobile industry this year imo.
Everyone should replace their digital watches with this device :)
wow wow wow
sony plz quickly provide this beauty in market , plz want to buy it plz
What is the point of this accessory, cellular phone was created so you can take it anywhere, fits in your pocket etc2, now SE created smaller device so you dont have to touch your phone? but actually you bring 2 device with similar function! I will consider to buy it if it's a phone
great looking phone but useless. no wonder sony ericsson is losing market share. japanese phones are really non-existent in the world and soon even their own market since iphone is a hit there and samsung just released their galaxy s in japan.

I would have much more use of a device like this, than just a BT caller ID watch.
To be able to control music playback at the gym, or while running is great.
It even gives me feedback from the sports app...
Its integrated with the calender, so I can see that information on this device.
[deleted post]So when you are running, you can see speed, etc on your headset?
No you cant.
If you are a subscriber to many updates/feeds, you can see them on your bluetooth headset, so you dont have to pick ut your phone for every update, which of most are useless.
No you cant.
And if you prefer wired headphones for the sound quality, you can see tracks and control your music player?
On some you can control playback, but no information.
Please think before you post!
For some people this accessorie is very usefull!
