Sporting an attractive silver-metallic trim, the Sony SmartWatch relies on a tiny 1.3-inch OLED display to showcase information. Also equipped with a touch screen, the gadget is controlled by tapping and swiping fingers across the display, much like a smartphone.

By default, the Sony SmartWatch comes with a conservative black wristband. Sony, however, sells five fashionable color choices: white (shown here), pink, mint, gray, and blue. The SmartWatch is also designed to take a beating, with Sony claiming it's both dust- and splash-resistant.

Just like an Android handset, the Sony SmartWatch has its own app tray with multiple screens that house icons for app shortcuts. You can launch apps directly from the app tray or have them operate as widgets on the watch's multiple home screens.
