Sony set to launch smartwatch in Shanghai next week

The watch?

This is a great idea! For those of us that actually want a damn accurate watche that can set itself without having to buy Seiko's Astron watch at $3000-5000 up, it's what exactly I've been looking for.

I would buy it for that alone.

I just came back from Switzerland's Schaffhausen, the home of Swiss watchmaking and saw watches up to $10,000 each that lose 20 seconds (and up) a month.

If Seiko think there is a market for people willing to spend $5000 on a GPS watch, I think Sony will have a winner if the time is right.

The fly in the ointment with this great camera (not mentioned in the article) is the completely ridiculous popup flash position; directly under the finger of your left hand holding the camera. You will get disconcerting jammed motor messages from the popup flash (did I break it this time, hope not). Fabulous camera but start learning to hold it either one handed or not in the way you would hold your SLR
