The smartwatch market got a little bit more crowded with the 'Wena Wrist' from Sony. The name is an abbreviation for "Wear Electronics Naturally" and departs from other smartwatches by delivering a more traditional aesthetic and a focus on style.

Interestingly, the smartwatch packs a large chunk of its technological capabilities in its strap. In its small frame, the Wena Wrist stores a tiny electronic money card that allows you to pay by tapping your strap, much like a credit card. A LED light also appears each time your phone receives a notification.

Ironically, the Wena Wrist only works with iPhone devices running iOS. The Wena Wrist boasts a much longer battery life than most smartwatches, with the regular watch face running three years, and the phonograph model running for five years.
