Sony Ericsson has teamed up with watchmaker Fossil to create the first Bluetooth-enabled watch we've seen at CNET.com.au.
The MBW-100 has a modern silver design with a deep blue face, silver links for the wrist band and a classic accordion-style clasp. The chunkiness of the watch and size of the face is eye-catching and stylish -- more of a men's than a women's watch.
There are three control buttons on the right-hand side -- a clickable rotating dial (which you also use to adjust the analog clock), and buttons on either side of the knob. A blue OLED display below the watch face shows the date, battery status, menu options and -- strangely -- the time in digital form.
The Bluetooth Watch connects wirelessly to some Sony Ericsson mobile phones and vibrates to alert users to calls and text messages. Caller ID is displayed or a mail icon shows on the screen. It also lets you reject calls, mute the phone's ringer and control the music player on your Sony Ericsson phone through various button combinations on the watch itself.
After charging the MBW-100 for a couple of hours -- Sony Ericsson bundles a charger which clips onto the side of the watch -- it's ready to be paired with your phone. Enter the password "0000" and you're ready to go.
