Sony hints on a new version of the Sony SmartWatch


Sony SmartWatch was officially announced back in April last year, although we don’t know whether it was a great hit or not, but it seems Sony received a good response as it looks like they are planning to launch a successor to it. Their recent activity on their Sony Xperia twitter account hints that they might reveal the new SmartWatch at the Mobile Asia Expo 2013. As the tweets says “One in three smartphone users want smart wrist wear”, with #itstime and #MAE2013 hash-tags, that clearly tells us that Sony got something up their sleeves for the mega event.

  1. I had a first gen Sony smart watch – the live view – and it was the worst piece of tech I have ever owned. I spent more time reconnecting it than actually using it. I’m currently using a pebble and it is much better, and really light!

  2. I think the whole internet watch thing is a seriously misguided notion that will never work as a mass market item. Apple has teased it, since they’re desperate for a new ipod/phone/pad to kick their dwindling percentage, and now others are trying to jump on before they start. Wrist watches are going the way of pocket watches, they’re already more of a fashion statement than a timepiece. They’ll never be dead, but the idea of trying to wire more tech into such a small interactive footprint is folly. Sure, you can connect it via bluetooth to something with a better gui, but now you’re into geek territory. Watches work because you don’t have to think about it, ever, except maybe every couple of years. Loading it up with managed apps turns it into a crappily tiny phone. Just pull out your phone.
