If I have one passion beside mobile devices, it's watches (which might came from my passion to collect Swatch watches in the early 90's) and I was always fascinated from Sony Ericsson's Bluetooth watches (especially the Time Masters 3 series). Unfortunately these watches were compatible with Sony Ericsson mobile phones only - until now. A member of the Xda-Developer community now releases smartWatchM which makes Sony Ericsson's Bluetooth watches compatible with Windows Mobile 5.0 and 6 smartphones and provides even more features than Sony Ericsson phones are able to provide:

Here is first version of my notification utility smartWatchM. It supports all main features of Sony Ericsson phones and it even has few extra functions.
It's developed for Smartphones/Windows Mobile Standard but I hope it will work on all WM 5/6 devices. I will check the compatibility of WM Prof. later.
The communication is over COM ports using AT commands.

Basic features

  • Clock Set - When you connect the watch, smartWatchM set the actual time (digital clock). Only 24hr format available.
  • Messaging Notification - When WM device receives new message, envelope and text describing message type (New SMS/New E-mail/New MMS) is displayed
  • Notification Repeat - If the newly received message stays unread, the watch will keep notify you according user setting (Number of repeats and Repeat interval)
  • Incoming Call Notification - When there is incoming call on WM device, watch starts vibrate and display caller name (if the person is found in contacts) or number
  • Battery Status - On watch to check battery level of WM device
  • Test Commands - Test the watch compatibility without any need to receive real message/call
  • COM Port Selection - Set different port if communication doesn't work on current port
  • Windows Media Player Info - Display the current playing track & artist in Windows Media Player

Sounds like I have a new toy on my shopping list. Heard over to the Xda-Developers thread for more information. smartWatchM is available free of charge for registered forum members. If you own both already, a Windows Mobile smartphone and a Sony Ericsson Bluetooth watch, please let us know how it works for you.

Cheers ~ Arne
