For those who have everything: Sony SmartWatch

The Sony SmartWatch displays text messages, caller IDs, and Twitter feeds.

Dick Tracy, watch out. Released in mid-April, the Sony SmartWatch leads a small incoming wave of wrist-worn devices that many smartphone addicts may find they can’t do without. If your phone’s in a nearby pocket, backpack, or purse, the watch receives a Bluetooth signal and displays text messages, caller IDs, and Twitter feeds. That can come in handy if you’re riding a bike or when you need to check Facebook updates or baseball scores discreetly—“say, when you’re sitting in a meeting, supposedly paying attention.” Sony’s SmartWatch ($150, sony.com) works with Xperia and Android phones; the Pebble, due in September, will be compatible with both Androids and iPhones.
