Sony unveils SmartWatch and Wireless Headset Pro for Android

Sony unveils SmartWatch and Wireless Headset Pro for AndroidEvery now and then, a gadget comes along that just screams "I want." Here's the one that's got us all hot under the collar today - the new Sony SmartWatch, just unveiled at CES.

It's not a new idea - a watch that links up to your mobile via bluetooth is old hat - and has most recently been adopted by this lot. But, the SmartWatch brings along that classy, classic Sony design and packages it into something that induces drooling in a grown man.

So here's what it can do - access calls, messages, applications, tweets etc from your wrist. It also acts as a pedometer if you go running and comes complete with 128 x 128 pixel OLED touchscreen. The idea being that you can clip it off the strap and swap straps if you want to. Or just hold the little blighter in your fingers.

If that doesn't float your boat, there's also a new Wireless Headset Pro which works as a standalone MP3 player/FM radio and again, is designed to link up to your Android phone. This baby has a two line display so you can read incoming SMS, screen calls, access your calendar and much more.

No word on pricing yet though we can't imagine they'll be particularly cheap. We also assume they'll work with all Android handsets rather than Sony restricting them to their Sony droids. There's the issue of battery too - with bluetooth on all day, your phone may not last as long as it should. But this is all heresy.. And quite frankly we can't wait to see them in our possession.

Head to Geeky Gadgets for a few videos in action - if only to listen to the man who looks and sounds like some kind of Eastern European porn star!

Looks that way, much more exciting are the I'm watch

or the Wimm one

Which are full Adroid devices in their own right, although (and I know ill get flamed for this) personally I just want Apple to slim down the iPod Nano a tad, add bluetooth and ANT+ support (or at least Nike+ support INCLUDING THE HEART RATE MONITOR) then ill be a happy Stelph

Incidentally I suspect Bluetooth may be coming to the Nano the next generation as the iPhone 4s now has Bluetooth 4.0 or Low Energy which looks to be the future for bluetooth connected devices like this. However this is one speculation I hope I am wrong with because that means id be unable to use the Nano with my iPhone 4. ****
