Oh, the things you see on the show floor on your last day at CES. The Sony Ericsson LiveView watch isn't exactly new and breaking, but it's new to us and, well, it's frankly better than we expected. If you're not familiar, it's a Bluetooth watch that's meant to be a 'remote' to your Android smartphone (works best with Xperia, natch, but there is a compatibility list for other phones). If your phone in your pocket is just too far away, you can look at email, messages, calendar, caller ID, RSS, control your music, and more. It pairs up with an App on your 2.0-or-better Android phone where you can download additional plug-ins (there are 24 of them to date).
Navigation is a straightforward affair - tap the edges of the watch to scroll, hit the selector button on the edge to, erm, select.
After the break, some more photos and a wrist-on video. (Yes, we bought one and are going to put it through its proper paces next week)
