Sony Ericsson MBW-150 Bluetooth Watch
Now when you thought that mobile phone accessories could not get cooler, Sony Ericsson launches a new watch that can be linked to their mobile phones via bluetooth. Sony Ericsson’s MBW-150 Bluetooth watch sports features like call handling, music playback controls and the ability to display caller ID. The Watch also displays song information on its organic LED (OLED) display and vibrates to alert about an incoming text message or call, or if the phone is getting out of the Bluetooth range.

A sleek timepiece with a classic analog face and a small OLED display, it is available in Classic, Music, and Executive editions and costs about Rs. 6,000.
