From the forum:
Rumour has it that Sony Ericisson is about to announce a Bluetooth Wristwatch which will pair with your Walkman Phone and control all the music functions direct from the Watch face.

You will be able to connect to all your music via the watch and play/skip/foward all your music tracks,It will will also have caller ID display.The Sony Ericsson Walkman branded Watch will be made available in a Limited Edition of only 10,000 pieces worldwide so it will be pretty exclusive.I can already see that the demand for this will be absolutlely huge.

Its also said that these will be made by the famous watch company fossil and will retail for around 150 but with such a limited quantity produced im sure these will be selling four times their retail value on places like ebay.Here's a mock up which i had made of what the watch might look like,but its very likely it will be nothing like this but who knows. source:fatreg

One more opportunity for SE to cash the walkman brand, now with accessories for their phones... Why not a more relevant product? Who is going to buy this with stereo bluetooth earphones already out there that come with remote control? Funny thing, nokia announces the exciting N95 now and what do we hear from SE: a useless watch, a shy attempt to imitate ipod + nike partnership, shame on u SE.

Fossil are about to announce a Bluetooth watch (we've seen a prototype) but I was ill the day they came in to show it. These photos may be fake, but the a real product is definitely happening and it's quite possible that SE has done a deal with Fossil to have their own variant.

So, don't write it off as a joke!

I wouldn't wear it if you paid me possibly one of the most stupid ideas i have ever heard totally and utterly pointless and at over double the price of a HBH-DS970 totally insane. But if any of you want one and are happy to wear it as well as a set of headphones good luck to you and i hope you enjoy it, Just not for me thanks but then i am 46 so it may be an age thing.
