We've seen quite a few innovations in the world of mobile accessories from strictly basic Bluetooth enabled headsets going from Mono to Stereo (A2DP) to a variety of corresponding gadgets from jewellery to sports equipment. For Sony and it's previous...

The price tag on Sony’s SmartWatch Accessory is Rs. 6,299, which is in a little bit of a grey area as high end accessories go. It certainly does have it’s plus points, but on the down side, it should have had an audio out option to simplify the user...

The Sony SmartWatch is an intriguing device — a secondary display for your Android-powered handset that provides quick access to notifications from select apps and services on your phone. It's also able to show you who's calling or texting, control...

Better looking than most smart watches ; Definite geek chic factor ; Comfortable ; Works seamlessly with a recommended handset ; Music controls are a nice touch

Software is overly complex to set up ; No guarantee of future compatibility ; Apps are of limited use ; Initially confusing ; Expensive

A neat idea, but it's tough to escape the novelty value

You’ll find more cons than pros here,

We can't help but notice how similar it looks to the iPod nano, launched two years earlier. The screen resolution is rather low at only 128 x 128 pixels, about half that of the iPod nano's 240 x 240 pixel display.

The Sony SmartWatch is a cool and attractive gadget, one that you want just for the sake of it. However, it's more than just a shiny touchscreen watch offering plenty of apps and functionality. The downsides are a slightly bulky design and the need to...

First Look: Is the Sony Xperia SmartWatch the first viable smart watch?

The most crucial thing, though, is that we were told the watch should last from four days to a week between charges, making it genuinely practical. Set to cost $149 (no UK price yet) it could well be the perfect accessory for Xperia handset owners.

The Sony SmartWatch enters the realm of usability thanks to recent software updates, but it's still more of a smartphone accessory than a solid, stand-alone timepiece.

Sleek, stylish look ; Wide range of wireless functions notifications, call handling and music control made possible by a Bluetooth smartphone connection

Needs an Android smartphone connection to function or even keep the time ; Not compatible with iOS ; Display can't be read in sunlight ; Needs to be charged daily

A window on your world, or a closed door?

Although it’s a vast improvement over the Sony LiveView, the Smartwatch still suffers from too many failings to be a product that we can wholeheartedly recommend. Even so, it does have its uses, and if you can live with its shortcomings then you might...
