Smartwatches are invading the wearables market and Sony is deciding to take a step ahead. According to Bloomberg report, Sony is said to be making a new Smartwatch whose surfaces are made entirely from E-Paper. The watch is said to "emphasize style, rather than trying to outdo more technological offerings."

 

This Sony smartwatch will focus on style and customization, using e-paper all around the watch will allow users to completely change the style and look of the watch from the Face down to the Strap.

The project is apparently the first to come out of a new innovation center set up by Sony CEO Kaz Hirai. Intended to produce Sony's next breakthrough product-the Walkman or PlayStation of its time-it's not yet produced anything game changing. There is no expected release date for this watch but we expect it on markets by 2016.

Gear S

 

This year, Samsung's definitely been active in the smartwatch market. It recently unveiled the Gear S. But next year the company may be taking its smartwatch efforts to the next level.

 

According to a report out of Samsung's home country of South Korea, at Mobile World Congress 2015 we could see a new wearable that will come with a built-in fingerprint scanner. And in what would be a first for a Samsung device, it may not require a swipe to register your fingerprint.

 

Aside from featuring that sensor and not relying on a smartphone for secure authentication purposes, this yet-unnamed smartwatch is also to sport some simple payments functionality. This will be developed by Samsung in partnership with PayPal. The two companies have already teamed up this year to enable making payments with the Galaxy S5's fingerprint sensor, so the new smartwatch venture would be a natural extension of that relationship.

 

The whole thing has been reportedly confirmed by "a high-ranking official at Samsung Electronics". Synaptics is also involved, thanks to its biometric know-how. The system will send promotional offers to your smartwatch from nearby stores, so you can pick what you want to buy even before entering a shop. It will be available in over 50 countries worldwide.
