Sony-Ericsson MBW-150

Sony-Ericsson today revealed the MBW-150, the latest in its recent watch line that pairs with most Bluetooth phones to ease call handling and music. In line with the Fossil-branded MBW-100 released last fall, the three new designs include a vibration alert and a a small OLED display that provide caller ID and notices of SMS texts; a quick button press can accept or dismiss voice calls. Owners of Walkman phones or other Bluetooth music phones also get basic track navigation so they can listen without fishing the phone out of a pocket.

The three versions to be available soon will vary primarily based on style, the company says. The Classic and Music both share a black leather band for a traditional look, with the latter adding orange trim to match Walkman-series phones. A lone premium version, the Executive, will sport an all-metal wristband and a larger watch face. All three resist water up to 100-foot depths and will provide active Bluetooth use for about seven days.

MBW-150 watches should be available worldwide (including the US) during the fall, with pricing varying by the region.
