Have you been thinking about jumping on the Bluetooth watch trend but are hesitant to invest the $100-$200 necessary for Motorola Motoactv, Pebble, or Sony Smart Watch? Well, why not dip your toe in the water with the Sony Ericsson LiveView Remote Bluetooth Display Watch for Android Phones (longest product name ever, by the way).
Dailysteals’ eBay store is having a sale on its LiveView inventory that puts the product at the low, low price of only $19.99. Included in that bundle is the LiveView unit, a clip, wristband, microUSB charger and adapter, and a manual. Everything is new in original packaging, and standard shipping is free within the United States.
The Sony Live View is dead technology that debuted a while ago. It’s already been replaced by a new and improved version in the Sony SmartWatch, so potential buyers will be grabbing a product that is inferior to other options on the market. However, that inferiority might be worth dealing with if you only have to fork over a Jackson to get it.
Before you buy, remember that the LiveView had software problems, poor battery life, and is a two-year old device not capable of doing what newer models can accomplish. Only buy it if you’re looking for a low-risk investment and a new toy to play with.
