Sony releases Android watch

Written by Nick Farrell



Dick Tracy is with us

In another case of technology catching up with fantasy, Sony has released an internet-linked wristwatch powered by Android.

SmartWatch gets online by connecting wirelessly to a wearer's Android smartphone using Bluetooth technology. The watch is similar to one worn by classic comic strip detective Dick Tracy. It will set you back $US150, available online and at Sony stores.

Sony Mobile Communications customer unit president Paul Hamnett said that the smartWatch provides access to live content and entertainment on the go. SmartWatch can switch from displaying time to acting as a touchscreen interface for smartphone information.

Vibrations or alerts flashed on the 3.3-centimetre screen can signal incoming calls and wearers can glance at their wrists to peruse email or text messages as well as Facebook or Twitter updates by friends.
