Sony teases new smart watch in tweet

smart watch generic

Sony has already made two attempts at a smart watch, and we can’t say that the last one was bad at all. Unfortunately for Sony, back then, smart watches were a little ahead of their time. They have now grown in popularity significantly, and people are starting to take notice.

Do people really want smart watches? According to recent tweet from the Sony Twitter account, yes. Sourcing Bi Intelligence, Sony makes the claim that one third of smartphone users want smart wrist wear. The tweet is also labeled with two hashtags, #itstime and #MAE13. The latter is easy to explain, as they are hosting the Mobile Asia Expo in Shanghai next week. But what about #itstime?

There’s good reason to believe Sony will be unveiling a new smart watch at MAE13. Their other attempts weren’t failures, and the technology has improved and become more mainstream, so why not give it another shot? This teaser has got us all excited, so stay tuned for more info during the Mobile Asia Expo. We’ll bring you any news of a new Sony smart watch, and if you’re good, a review.

    They have actually made two smartwatches previously not one. Sony (Ericsson) Liveview and then the Sony Smartwatch.

    I love new tech, but I can’t see myself using a smartwatch. I don’t really see the point. I understand you’ll get the notifications without taking out your phone, but wouldn’t you want to see it on a bigger scale via your mobile phone and reply back to it? Or is the watch a reminder of having a notification that you haven’t gotten back to yet? it just seems a litlte redundant to me that’s all.

    Sony’s previous smart watches haven’t been enough to get me to pull the trigger. I’ve preordered a Pebble, but if this Sony watch ends up being rad I’m not above jumping ship. I haven’t worn a watch in a long time, but I think I’d love a smartwatch.

    Looks more like they are saying only white people can afford one :P

      C’mon don’t down vote the guy, that was legitimately funny, or, at the least, mildly humorous. I’m upping you 1 (strictly platonically mind you)

    The only way I’d use a smart watch is if it could talk. Like seriously, Kate Beckinsale’s voice coming outta my wrist would be awesome! I’d also want the ability to do some voice commands, so I could roll like Michael Knight.

    Man I miss my Smartwatch.

    I bought a smartwatch mainly for my work as I use power tools often and so I could respond to calls or notifications. The watch to begin with was fine but it didn’t take long to have problems. I have sent it back to be repaired under warranty 3 times and now it is out of warranty it has failed me again. I just hope that if a new one comes out then it is made better than the last one.
