Sony Mobile Unveils SmartWatch 2 SW2: Ahead of the Ticker

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Sony (SNE - Get Report) Mobile has unveiled SmartWatch 2 SW2 at the Mobile Asia Expo in Shanghai.

The third-generation smartwatch features a 1.6-inch, 220 x 176 pixel color LCD display, touch and swipe capabilities and three to four days of battery time. It also features NFC wireless and can be paired to an Android phone over Bluetooth 3.0. When the watch is paired with a smartphone, it can use many of the phone's functions, like taking calls or photos and playing music.

The watch weighs less than an ounce and is about one-third of an inch in thickness. It's made of plastic and aluminum and is splash-proof.

The SmartWatch 2 SW2 is expected to be available around the world in September. Sony Mobile has not announced pricing at this time.

Companies including Apple (AAPL - Get Report), Microsoft (MSFT - Get Report) and Samsung are all rumored to be currently developing their own smartwatches.
