Sony has today made an announcement that is definitely not a surprise to us, in order to create and fund a brand new smartwatch, the company announced that it would be launching a concept watch on a Japanese crowdfunding website.

Called the Sony Wena Watch, it is a traditional looking watch but with a number of not so traditional features, including NFC in-built for mobile payments and Bluetooth to allow for a connection with a smartphone to get notifications of incoming calls and messages on the watch.

The watch will notify you of these via both a vibration motor and an LED light. It also features a battery that is said to last up to a week and is encased in a waterproof housing.

It doesn’t have a touchscreen display however.

Sony is currently investigating how many versions of the watch they should create and has listed details for “Chronograph” and “Three Hands” versions in black or silver.
