Sony not for the very first time launched a watch accessory for phones. When Sony Ericson T610 was introduced, it was only at that time they had the standard analog watch with MBW-100 Bluetooth and OLED display. Pebble e-paper watch is a close competitor of Smart Watch and had gathered interest at Kickstarter. Only after the 6 days of its successful launching Pebble e-paper in the history of Kickstarter became the most funded project. The Watch boasts of E-ink display, a project by Pebble technology has support for applications which will sync with Iphone or Android phone. Watch measures 144×168 black and white e-ink display, it has four buttons, Bluetooth 2.1, 3-axis accelerometer, and a vibrating motor. Smart Watch might be a bit expensive choice but you are getting a lot with it like an OLED display and a pleasing interface, & can also download applications from Google Play store.

The street price could even get lowered after its launch, so the pricing won’t seem to be too high.
