Coming soon to PlayStation Gear Store; Watches!
With the right price, I'd be very interested in getting one
They are up for "pre-sale" http://gear.playstation.com...
Thanks, didn't even know they sold clothes and coffee mugs. Nice!
These watches play games right? Right?
Wow that's a lot
Really? they look cheap and nasty. Now if they had the same styling as Sony's premier cellphone or tablet then I would consider one. But these just look like a cheap plastic knock off watch, the kind of thing you can win at a Time-Out or carnival.
Didn't click the link did you? "Made of stainless steel and scratch-resistant PC." That said, the pictures make it look like it's made from the stuff they use to coat analog sticks.
I did actually...which is what inspired my original comment.
Let's keep our expectations inline for a $45 watch. At this price point I wouldn't expect a high quality or fashionable time piece. This is a promotional item for fans that have $45 to burn.
I would rather get the sony smartwatch 3 personally. It would be cool to be a playstation branded smartwatch tho. But hey, these are for people would want regular.
Looks like something that came out of a Toy Vending Machine
I hate these useless watches trend, I understand about phone, but for games are you serious??
Did you read the link? It's just a watch for fans
"I have a lack of information about date of launch or presentation. So I cannot explain it with my way. Be alert gamers it will be available soon." Hmm not sure if I believe this rumor then. But it might be cool to see them make a watch.
Yes it will be cool and that's why i'm very curious to see the real watches by PlayStation. Can't wait
Just looked it up, regular watch for $45... http://www.neogaf.com/forum...
That quality build though right? Seems like they are just charging for the brand name, the watch looks like the ones I had when I was 5.
I don't think I've see a person wear a watch in 15 years. Everyone has a cellphone on them, a watch is completely pointless when I can pull out my phone.
Liar :) there are tons of people having watches. I guess you will see one within minutes of going outside :P
Theres plenty of people with watches, its a fashion statement and in the case of upscale brands like Rolex and Brietling its a symbol of affluency.
Almost everyone I know wears a watch, esp. at work. Much more convenient than pulling out your cell phone and much more discreet (and much less disrespectful)
I don't see many people with watches either, but with the Apple watch, that's likely going to change... Now with the PlayStation Watch, one could guess that it would be a digital watch, but it's just an ordinary watch. Doubtful Sony is going to sell many of these.
They're (watches) coming back now that every tech company and their grandmother is making a smartwatch.
As others have said watches are much more discreet. Also with the growing size of cellphones, they are much easier to look at quickly. Besides, I feel naked without my watch.
Only reason I don't wear my watch is because I work in catering. Not even allowed a bracelet!
Phil Spencer wears two watches.... I prefer watches, but as a programmer I find them an annoyance sometimes to keep on, so I mostly stopped wearing them except my good one for if I'm going out. I just find watches easier to look at when you need to tell the time instead of having to reach into my pocket and clicking the button on my phone...particularly when sitting down. It's also much more discreet should I need to tell the time in a meeting I'm bored in.
I thought they would integrate with my PlayStation... It's just a regular watch, and not a pretty one either.
Was this really real? I thought they were trolling us on Twitter lol.
These watches look pretty decent to me. Not really into the price tag, but I'm sure they will lower somewhat in price eventually.
Twitter link is broken
I be getting all the bitches with this new watch
Watches are so last century!
...this is odd.
They could be better, they're ok
I dont understand why dont have better looking watches or atleast make them look more sophisticated? I dont mind simplicity but I question its design choices. This is so out of the blue.
They look cheap and nasty
Tell me, do you watch? ... You will.
I will get one and wear it to E3!
My samsung gear s looks much better than this. As a matter of fact id say the gear s is the best looking smart watch yet.
Just to clear up any confusion here: these ain't smart watches. They just tell analog time and seem to feature a crappy rubber band
no thanks i have a moto 360 with a custom xbox face plate already :D
I loved moto 360 especially the champagne gold one 😍, but unfortunately I use iPhone so it useless for me tho
android wear may be supporting ios soon,otherwise get rid of that p.o.s iPhone!
Analog watches? hahahah, I can use this at work, to take heart and respiratory rates.
They must be hurting for cash....
needs to be a smart watch prices at 350 and up
Ugly and doesn't worth the price at all
This accessory doesn't look so bad imo, I might get one because it is a PS branded.
Don't people read it's not made by Sony , it's made by Modify Watches. Go to Modifywatches.com. They just made 2 styles for playstation gear. Hope that helps
I was excited, but it's a regular watch and its not even nice looking. It looks like rubber, like those cheapy ones you have as a kid. It even has "made in China" stamped on the inside of it.... Sony if you want to make nice ones, I'll bite, so get on it.
Lol, no thanks.
Just ordered mine. It ships the day before my birthday so Happy Birthday to me. =D
Will this watch use black bars across its face for Cinematic effect and will it be at 30 or 60 fps?
Yuck. It looks even less cool than a Casio F91.. (my timepiece of choice when looking for a functional plasticky thing and dont care what it looks like.) My daughter had a watch with a removable watch inserted into a silicon/rubber strap like this, and the strap split around the watch very quickly. Hers looked like a hippo, lol. Still looked better than this. XD
Pretty sure you'd get beaten up for wearing somethinglike that around here lol.
These are kind of watch I want.. not the stupid smartwatch crap.
http://i.imgur.com/qi32Z44m... I prefer my Dreamcast watch.
Good price but the design could've been much better. Also, a digital watch would be good too.
Ugh this is cheap crap i'd go for the Sony smartwatch 3 you won't be disappointed (Ano off topic)
These look very cheap and nasty
u wot m8? what's up with companies re-inventing wristwatches lately? they've been around since 1571 ffs, you're not exactly blowing minds here... and another thing, who the hell use wristwatches anymore??? i know these new "smartwatches" are more like smartphone and watch combined but.....who the hell doesn't have a smartphone? or just regular phone? WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THESE THINGS....????? should'ave but the R&D costs of this ridiculous thing to funding Vita games. EDIT: oh, these aren't apparently smartwatches...? okay? nope, still no idea why this exists either.
I wear a wrist watch because I like Dreamcast. Don't have a smartphone. Easier for me to pull back my shirt cuff than dig in my pocket for my phone.
yeah, i understand. it's totally a pain in the ass to move the hand to the pocket and grab the phone and press a button and use your visual organ to view it. clearly... but if you're gonna wear a watch you might as well have a cool ass Dreamcast watch so props to you. does it play Jet Set Radio though? ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) actually i'd love to have a LoZ Majora's Mask watch that'd have obnoxious bell noise for every second just to annoy people.
Shows time in real time..
Now you can tell the time when you are shoved in a locker!
