Watches have been outdated by technology and turned into jewelry, as time is easily presented over our phones. However, this is going to all change as more and more companies are releasing Bluetooth watches that syncs with your smartphones. As a result, people have been afraid to showcase their inner geek, with these new watches. So Citizen has come up with, a Eco-Drive Proximity watch that secretly notifies you about updates from your phone via Bluetooth 4.0. With a James Bond style, it will secretly notify you of a missed call, with the second hand pointing to a word indicating a need for attention. The Eco-Drive Proximity watch will probably be priced at a $500 dollar range. Finally, I’m sorry to say that all you Android users out there won’t be able to get their hands on this, as the watch is only compatible with iPhone 4S and future generations.

It seems like just as you buy your new smartphone, you hear that an even better one is just being released soon. This might be the case here today, as photos of the Nokia Arrow (Nokia Lumia 820) are released from a Chinese website. However, one of the funny things about these images are that, on the bottom right corner it claims the phone only has 335 MB of RAM. This is probably due to it being a prototype, we hope. One thing we do know though, is that it will most likely be running Windows 8 (shock).

Chinese online sources claim that Xiaomi might be releasing its successful phones in Europe as early as Q1 2013. The real question behind this statement is whether Xiaomi has the capabilities to expand its market in a completely uncharted area. Just to start off, Xiaomi will have to invest a lot of money in advertisement in Europe as not a lot of people are familiar with the brand. Finally, the funny part about this story is that Xiaomi has about 1.3 billion people in china to sell to, but that’s not good enough for them, of course.
