Sony Ericsson first revealed its MBW-150 Bluetooth watch this morning, with Sony insides and design by watchmaker Fossil. It lets you control your Bluetooth-compatible cellphone or music player from your watch. Sony Ericsson had one like this before, but this one is even thinner, and the best part is it looks like an ordinary analog watch.

That little screen below the dial is an OLED display where caller ID info pops up if you get a phone call. And, it vibrates when that call comes in, letting you answer it or discreetly send it off to voice mail land. Pair it up with an A2DP stereo Bluetooth headset, and you can control your tunes from your watch, too. It's set for a fall release, and it'll cost you $399. Now this is a non-geeky looking Bluetooth watch we could live with.

"It'll have to work with other phones. No one is going to buy a phone for the privilege of buying a matching watch."

I actually picked up the FX6001 caller id watch hoping it would work with my Nokia 7610. When I found out it didn't, I used it as an excuse to pick up the awesome SE k800i.

So, wrong on that. :-)
