Bargain Watch: Sony Ericsson MBW-150 Bluetooth Watch (Music Edition) - £49.99


Welcome to what is becoming something of a regular feature, Bargain Watch!

Except this time, it is ACTUALLY a watch! :D

Twitter follower @michaeljjava has kindly alerted me to the Sony Ericsson MBW-150 Bluetooth Watch Music Edition (phew!) on sale at MobileFun for only £49.99! Now, i've been on the lookout for one of these for a while, not to use with any dodgy Sony Ericsson software (the stock experience kinda sucked!), but to use with OpenWatch, the third party Android software that supports the MBW-150.

These babies are going to sell out super quick (especially now!)... so if you want one, best get in fast!

Edit: Orange Accessories also have the following models available:

Edit 2: In the US? Expansys.com have the watch available for $59.99!

So does it do anything other than show you what's playing?

For music it does track skip, volume, pause etc., but my real interest is integrating it with tasker to send custom messages to the watch and initiate custom actions from the watch. :D

How long does the battery last? Need to charge it every day?

Mine is "stuck" in the UK. :)

From what I've heard, the issue with these is that the non-repairable display is likely to be dead within 12 months. Shame, as I've ordered one :(

Tempted to return it before opening...

Mine was DOA, well the OLED display was <_<

It went back the same day that it came for replacement but not heard anything yet from them.

Just picked mine up. Haven't opened the box yet. To keep or not to keep.

Are there any reasonable alternatives with long lasting displays? I love the idea of these watches. OpenWatch doesn't say what the issues are with the LM series (if there are any) as far as I can see, although they're not as good looking as the MBW watches anyway.

Returned. Couldn't face getting attached to it, then it dying with no replacements around :)

I've just tested mine for 10 minutes and really enjoy using it. Very nice even with just standard sms and call notifications.

i still have mine.
it was connected to my san fran, but as i've got the nexus now, i'm waiting to root and see if it works with nexus ;)

its a nice enough watch, even without using the bluetooth functions :)
