In a tweet sent out by Sony Xperia, the successor to the SmartWatch was teased when a picture which stated “One out of 3 smartphone users want smart wrist wear.” Sony then felt the need to add the hashtags #itstime and #MAE13, the latter stands for next week’s Mobile Asia Expo 2013 in Shanghai.

Just in case you didn’t get the message in the first tweet, Sony Xperia teased us some more with a retro-inspiring tweet which reminded us of the wearable Sony Walkman. Of course, someone at Sony’s twitter account was having so much fun that they decided to release another tweet stating “Tick-tock, tick-tock, tick-tock”.
Wearable tech is in our DNA. Remember WALKMAN, now…? #itstime #MAE13

While most of the attention in the wearable computing market has been garnered on Google Glass, many products like the Pebble smartwatch have tried their hand at a smartwatch. Who knows, maybe Sony can crack the smartwatch code.

Sony has been busy with the Xperia ZU, a monster 6.4-inch phablet which should be unveiled in Paris, on July 4, but it is holding a media event at Mobile Asia Expo 2013 next week, so we should see the new Sony SmartWatch then.

Would you rather wear a smartwatch than Google Glass?
