Sony has developed a sleek SmartWatch that syncs with any smartphone or Android to keep you constantly connected to all your social networks. The light and sporty watch, complete with the same touchscreen as your smartphone, is capable of supporting up to 60 apps and displaying your four most popular ones on the front screen for easy access.

With a simple wrist glance, you can read text messages, catch up on emails or review the latest tweets and Facebook notifications. The SmartWatch also comes with an open-source music player, making it perfect for athletes who like to train with pump-me-up music.

The Sony watch has lots of possibilities for improving the way athletes train, travel and stay connected. Liberated from the need to carry a phone on their person, athletes can wear this watch on the road to stay up to speed with college recruiter emails, get reminded of practices or workouts and listen to their music playlists. The watch also has a multitude of training apps, which can be extremely useful during a workout, since the information is displayed right on your wrist. And for athletes who have a tendency to misplace their phone, the SmartWatch has the ability to find it, whether it’s in an overflowing athletic bag or a messy locker.

The Sony SmartWatch can sync via Bluetooth with any Android 2.1 or higher smartphone. Available in six different colors, the watch costs $149.97, and it can be purchased through Verizon's  online store or at your local retailer.
