The Sony SmartWatch, which was only just announced for the US earlier today, is already available for an awesomely reduced price. Expansys USA is offering the device for just $118, which is $32 off Sony's price of $149.99.

For those unaware, Sony's SmartWatch allows users to "check updates discreetly," and control certain features of their Android device (like music, for example) from the Bluetooth-connected timepiece.

For those interested, here are a few more details about the SmartWatch:

  • 1.3" OLED display with a 128x128 resolution (16 bit color)
  • .03" thickness
  • Aluminum/high-polished plastic body
  • Dust and splash-proof
  • Compatibility with devices running Android 2.2 and higher
  • ~3-4 day battery life

As an added bonus, Expansys USA is promising customers that the device will ship in about 7 days, which is much sooner than Sony's May 4th date. Those interested can take advantage of the deal by heading over to Expansys USA's listing here.

    Any idea how that battery life translates to screen-on time?

    I STRONGLY urge you to NEVER order or work with Expansys. If you don't believe me just Google it. See how many others hate them. AP Team, I would like to respectfully ask that you stop posting anything that has to do with Expansys, seeing that they are not a reputable company. They downright lie to their customers about what is in stock and do not reply to emails. They are an awful company that can afford to sell gadgets below retail price because they sacrifice necessary elements of their business.

      Expansys USA has a very high 9.2+ ResellerRatings rating, which is anything but not reputable. Any company will have some unhappy customers, but I don't believe Expansys USA deserves an AP ban.

        Fair enough, but from the extensive research I've done, it's quite the opposite. (also keep in mind that many of the reviews on that site are similar and could have been posted by Expansys) I tried to order a GSM GNexus when it came out and they said it was in stock when it wasn't and would not reply to ANY of my emails. Many others have had the same experience. I looked it up (a lot), and after about a week I tweeted their UK branch and got a response. I then requested my order be cancelled and received no reply despite the fact that I asked for a confirmation. I signed in and they had cancelled my order like I asked. (did one thing right) I used Handtec.co.uk instead and was very happy with the quality of service and speed. Just my story and opinion.

    Might have ordered this if I didn't jump on the pebble bandwagon yesterday.

      Congratulations! Pebble looks pretty cool. I don't wear a watch, but if I did I would get something similar.

      • Ericsson

        Haha same, this will be my first watch in over 3 years.

    This or Pebble... :< But my battery life for my phone is already quite bad... with bluetooth on, I can't imagine how often i'd need to charge!

    • Jeff

      IMO Pebble is better... always on with better battery life, that's how I'd want my watch to work... no tapping my wrist to view time, which is lame

    Nexuz-Uno: I can assure you we are not placing fake reviews of our site. Every review has an individual order ref. If you would like to contact me about your experience please feel free to do so. The GNex was released during the holidays and I believe we were the first retailer in the USA to ship it out to customers. I would agree however, our email during that time was not as good as it could have been. Since the Holidays have passed, we have recruited more employees on the CS side and typically see a few hour response time during business hours.
