Tech gi­ants bat­tle for con­trol of that valu­able ter­ri­tory be­twixt arm and hand

Sony’s lat­est stab at a watch en­cases its 1.6-inch, 320x320 LCD dis­play in ritzy stain­less steel. The An­droid Wear de­vice makes use of 4GB of built-in stor­age and is fully wa­ter­proof, like its Xpe­ria brethren. The usual sen­sory fare – an ac­celerom­e­ter, com­pass, gyro, GPS and mic – let you do ev­ery­thing from track­ing your steps to log­ging your life to re­mote con­trol­ling your smart­phone’s cam­era to bark­ing in­struc­tions into your wrist.
