Verizon Wireless now selling the Sony SmartWatch


Time to stop the endless quest – The Sony SmartWatch can now be purchased straight from Verizon! It is hard to come accross a Sony store, and many of them don’t usually have the accessory in stock. The Sony SmartWatch also can’t be found in many other stores, so it is nice to hear that Big Red will be carrying this device.

Verizon has started selling the Sony Smartwatch though its website, as well as retail stores. It goes for the same $149.97 price, so this should be a no-brainer if you have been looking to purchase this smart watch. You should now be able to head over to your nearest Verizon store and (with some luck) find this bad boy in stock.

If you haven’t heard of it yet, the Sony SmartWatch is a wrist accessory that connects to your Android 2.1 or higher device. It displays notifications and allows you to control certain functions straight from your wrist. The device is fairly new, so there is not a huge selection of apps and games available yet. But with 60 applications now available, and more coming, there should be more than enough to get you started.

Those interested can head over to their local Verizon store or purchase it online. But just out of curiosity, how many of you have been itching for one of these? I currently use an iPod Nano as a wrist watch and I have to say I am not satisfied. It does not offer the same functionality as one of these, though.

    This should really become a trend. Although, I just imagine in my head some guy at Starbucks with his iPod Nano wristwatch, iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch, and Mac… and now I’m beginning to slowly feel Android enthusiasts will be doing that exact same thing in due time. Not sure how positive or negative that is…

      Yeah, once again, not the sony Smartwatch. That’s the much worse Liveview.

      ya and now the listing has been removed by eBay and the seller has been flagged. Get that PayPal claim started as soon as you can. :/

  • Jacob

    Sweet! Thanks Chris! Just picked one up.

    It’s got potential. Not sure how much though. Perhaps people who go for morning jogs.

  • Jacob

    Item isn’t removed and the seller isn’t flagged… It should shop today… I’ll let you know if it doesn’t.
