For those who have everything: Smarter than the average watch

A smartwatch you can sync to your smartphone — and more in our collection of bizarrely elite consumer products

Dick Tracy, watch out. The Sony SmartWatch ($150) leads a small incoming wave of wrist-worn devices sure to seduce smartphone addicts. If your phone's in your pocket, the Bluetooth-equipped watch displays text messages, caller IDs, and Twitter feeds. That's handy if you're cycling or need to check Facebook updates or baseball scores discreetly — "say, when you're sitting in a meeting." Sony's SmartWatch works with Xperia and Android phones; the rival Pebble, due in September, will sync with both Androids and iPhones. Source: The New York Times
