Sony's SmartWatch 2

Music, Twitter and Email on your wrist

Remember those communicator devices on Star Trek and the endless gadgets that Q was able to pack into the tiny surface area that was James Bond's watch? These are no longer a wild fantasy thanks to the tech whizzes of Silicon Valley.

The SM2 will let you take photos remotely using its camera app, browse through downloaded emails and control your music player without ever taking your phone out of your pocket. Oh, and it's waterproof as well should you ever need it underwater.
