Sony Ericsson today showed off its latest Bluetooth watches, three of which are aimed at the lady in your life, though those with more svelte companions might have to look elsewhere for Christmas gifts.

Girly Watches

The watches are an improvement on previous Bluetooth efforts, but still showing considerable bulk in diameter and thickness: more Tank Girl than Lady Penelope, despite the pretty face.

The impressively-bright OLED screens will show the calling party's number and vibrate when a call comes in, allowing the user to reject the call or dig into their handbag to recover their handset. If the handset is a recent Sony Ericsson model then the watch can also control the music player and will even display the currently-playing track.

Prices aren't set yet, but existing models sell for just shy of two hundred quid so expect these to cost something similar, worth it if the lady in your life is going to appreciate Bluetooth on her wrist is prepared to put up with a considerable chunk of metal to get it.
