5.0 out of 5 stars Great companion for my Android phone!, 28 Aug. 2010
This review is from: Bluetooth Uhr MBW-150 Classic Edition SonyEricsson (Accessory)
About two years ago, I followed the Bluetooth watch closely. I thought it to be a great idea, but since I did not have a SonyEricsson phone, I had no use for it: the watch would only work with select phones from SE!

A couple of weeks ago, I was browsing the Android Market, where I discovered the OpenWatch app for Android. I couldn't resist to buy the now much cheaper watch that I whished for a couple of years ago.

Using the free and open source OpenWatch app, the phone integrates quite well with my HTC Desire. My phone is now usually set to completely silent. The watch will infor me of e-mails, SMS messages, phone calls, and I can even see contact details without picking up the phone. Really great for meetings, and equally great when listening for music in my headphones. I can see what's playing now, goto next/prev, pause or adjust the volume while my phone is resting safely in my belt.

What's more, the phone seems to use less power when I'm using the watch instead of taking out the phone to check for e-mails and messages. Bluetooth really doesn't draw much power - the watch can actually work actively with Bluetooth, vibration and display infos for about a week on a single charge!

There is one minor drawback: The supplied charger is not USB compatible, but instead a clunky and proprietary SonyEricsson connector. When travelling with the watch, you will need yet another 5V power supply. This seems silly and rather inelegant. Also note that OpenWatch requires Android 2.0. The SonyEricsson X10 currently runs on the venerable Android 1.6, and will therefore not be compatible with OpenWatch.
