Sony SmartWatch Now Available From Verizon Wireless

Today, Verizon is announcing that it will begin carrying Sony’s Android-powered SmartWatch. For those of you who are a little fuzzy on Sony’s creative accessory, the SmartWatch is a digital wristwatch with a 1.3-inch color display running a customized version of Android 2.1 that acts as a second screen for your main device. This bad boy hooks up to your Android device (2.1 and above) via Bluetooth 3.0. It displays your notifications, SMS messages and even allows you to control certain aspects of your smartphone or tablet directly from your wrist. Sony’s device is still fairly new and so far there isn’t a huge selection of apps and games available yet. However, the company has made it clear that even though there are more than 60 apps are currently available, many more will be coming soon. Previously, the watch was only available online and in Sony stores (when you could find it in stock). Starting today, the accessory will be available both in-store and online from Big Red for the same $149.97 price you find elsewhere. So, how many of you plan on picking one of these up?
