Alongside its Sony Xperia Ion and Xperia S Android smartphones, Sony also used CES to show its new Xperia Watch. Don't expect Rolex-style design, as this watch is all business. Sure, the pink band adds some color, but the minimalist design largely reflects the Xperia smartphone line.


Through a Bluetooth connection the watch will allow wristside access to a variety of features, including text messaging, e-mail, social media, music, and weather info. And if you have a Bluetooth headset you can access your phone book on the watch and make a call.
