With the new device from Sony Mobile Communications, you can operate your smart phone even if it is in your bag. The company will introduce the “Smart Watch” that allows you to check mails and play music by remote control to the Japanese domestic market on April 10. The new device has a 1.3-inch organic electroluminescence screen with a resolution of 128x128 pixels and employs Bluetooth designed for short distance wireless communications. It works together with Sony’s smartphone Xperia.
Using the touch panel of the smart watch, you can check information received by your smartphone, confirm weather forecasting, and dispatch information on SNS like Facebook. Because it supports Google’s applications, you can customize your smartphone by adding software programs downloaded from Google Play. Because it is detachable, you can take it apart from the wristband and use the body as a clip to be attached to bag or clothes. It is 36 mm wide, 36 mm deep, and 8 mm high. It weighs about 42 g including the wristband. It will be sold through Sony’s Internet website for 9,480 yen.
