Sony Ericsson BT watches

Sony Ericsson on Wednesday announced it will supplement its men's line of MBW-150 Bluetooth watches with a women's line called the MBW-200. Made in conjunction with watchmaker Fossil, the timepieces use Bluetooth to connect with compatible handsets and display caller ID and vibrate when the phone is ringing or a text message is received. Users can then mute or reject the call via the watch. Either of the three distinctly styled timepieces will also act as a remote control for the music playing from the handset.

The MBW-200 watches will also vibrate to let users know when they get out of Bluetooth range with their phones, which is about 30 feet. Auto pairing allows for a quick connection with the Bluetooth handset.

The three designs built around allergy-safe stainless steel are called Sparkling Allure, Contemporary Elegance and Evening Classic. Each includes a monochrome OLED display set into a traditional analog watch face, both under a mineral crystal glass with an anti-glare coating. Each watch is water resistant up to 100 feet and comes with a rechargeable battery.

The MBW-200 women's watches will be available for purchase before the end of 2008, though pricing information has not been announced.
