this is a ripoff of a kickstarter program. good jorb sony.
Technically, it's the other way round. The Pebble Watch on Kickstarter was clearly invented after the Sony watch - that is why the Sony watch is available RIGHT NOW, and Pebble watch requires $$$ from the Kickstarter program to even develop!

Motorola had one out last year, it's called the MOTOACTV it's basically a mid to low end Android phone (Android 2.3.4) that can be rooted to run what you want on it. Before that there were quite a few smart watches some dating back to the 1970s so this is not a new thing at all.

This also isn't accurate. The watch doesn't actually run Android. It uses bluetooth to receive data from Android devices. There is an app, however, that you get at the Play store (free) that is necessary for your phone to communicate with the watch.
