Sony FES Watch U smartwatch with E-Ink display now available in Japan
Sony FES Watch U
Sony's new smartwatch comes with a rechargeable power pack, unlike its predecessor that used replaceable coin cell batteries. It also has a minimalist design and features a metal bezel. The prices start around $420 USD.

Sony FES Watch is a smartwatch that launched as a crowd-funded product and had an E-Ink display. However, it was only available in Japan, so it is virtually unknown in other countries. Now, its successor can be already purchased. Sadly, it might never reach other markets as well.

Dubbed Sony FES Watch U, the new smartwatch that takes advantage of the E-Ink technology has a minimalist design like its predecessor but brings a metal bezel into the picture as well. More face designs can be acquired via an app called FES Closet. The interesting part is that these designs also change the looks of the strap, as clearly visible in the video that you can check at the end of this article.

A last noticeable change is in the battery department - the FES Watch U has a rechargeable power pack that promises up to 3 weeks of autonomy on a single charge. Its predecessor used button cells that were supposed to last for years.

The price of the regular steel finish model is around $420 USD, while the premium black one can be acquired for almost $545 USD.
