Sony Said to be Planning E-Paper Watch

by - 6 years ago


Sony is said to be planning a watch made entirely from ‘e-paper’.

The entire band and watch face will function as a display, according to Bloomberg. E-paper can display images akin to those seen on Amazon’s Kindle – digital images that display like they would on real paper.

The watch is said to display simple images and be low powered, but uses e-paper in a way that is unique compared to other display technologies.

The new watch is said to be coming from Sony’s experimental efforts, with them attempting to create more innovative products that can compete with competitors.

This is a good move too, as we reported yesterday on how Sony is planning to slash its TV and smartphone product lines, all thanks to declining profits and falling market share, something Sony is eager to turn around.

    I’d want to wait and see how it’s implimented and the level of flexibility in the final product with regards to apps etc.
    One of the main issues I have with smart watches right now is that there is no (or very little) cross compatibility with regards to appls. Things have to be bespoke and that can lead to issues further down the line. Though this may have changed since I last paid proper attention to smart watches.
