Sony Ericsson MBW-100, A Bluetooth Watch That Doesn’t Suck Too Much

I won’t let the team at Just-Ted scoop me on another Bluetooth watch again! I submit this for your consideration, and please note the non-plastic looking band (unlike on other junk watches).

Sony Ericsson MBW-100, A Bluetooth Watch That Doesn’t Suck Too Much:

It seems the merging of Bluetooth technology and watches is an artform that takes time maturing. Just look at a couple of the past candidates. Aside from having been hit one too many times with the Ugly Stick, these past models were either hard to get, or well, again just plain ugly. That’s why we’re glad to see the slightly-less-of-an-eyesore, more-of-a-butch Sony Ericsson MBW-100. Once paired with your Sony Ericsson device (with coming support for Symbian Series 60 phones, allegedly), the watch will vibrate on incoming calls and display caller info on its face. You can also receive sms notification, though without caller ID. Finally, you also get relatively primitive audio control interfacing when using the Walkman feature on a Sony phone.

PC Mag has a full review, and they come to the conclusion that $400 is a whole lotta cheddar for a watch with somewhat limited functionality. We agree and suggest you spend that money on beer.
