Leaked ad shows Sony plans to bundle their smartwatch with their flagship phone, the Z1

Both Sony and Samsung are going to be holding press conferences in Berlin tomorrow to announce their latest widgets. Sony will be unveiling the Z1, a refresh of the Z that was launched at the beginning of 2013. Rumors say the Z1 will have a Snapdragon 800 processor inside, a massive 3,000 mAh battery, and a 20 megapixel camera. Samsung on the other hand, they’re going to announce a 5.7 inch phablet, also with a Snapdragon 800 inside, but with a more conventional 13 MP shooter.

Here’s where things get crazy: Samsung is also rumored to be announcing a smartwatch called the Galaxy Gear tomorrow. We’ll know more about it soon, but apparently Sony’s move to counter-attack the Gear is to bundle their own smartwatch for free with the purchase of a Z1. This information comes from a leaked add that was spotted by the Xperia Blog, and as far as I can tell it’s a UK only promo, but that doesn’t mean Sony isn’t thinking of expanding this offer to more countries.

How good is the Sony Smartwatch 2?

It’s actually not out yet, but here’s a hands-on article you can check out to get a general idea of what the device is like. First impressions are rather negative, but hey, there’s always software updates.
