Sony Crowdfunding Introduces Wena

Joining the “First Flight” crowdfunding platform is Sony’s latest project: Wena. Designed with Japan’s smartwatch expert Citizen, the Wena (short for “wear electronics naturally”) features seven-color LEDs and vibrations for notifications, FeliCa-supported NFC chip for contactless payments, fitness tracking, and water resistance. Ironically, the Wena only supports iOS8 and above, meaning Sony’s own phones won’t be supported. The tech company is hoping to raise ¥10 million JPY (approximately $82,556 USD) via First Flight and hopes to ship the watches this March 2016. The Wena will come in Three Hands ($287 USD) and Chronograph ($576 USD).
