Watch designer Fossil and handset maker Sony Ericsson unveiled Thursday a Bluetooth-enabled cell phone accessory called Caller ID wristwatch.

After syncing their cell phones with their wristwatches, users will feel a slight vibration and see incoming caller ID information on the watch face.

"The caller's phone number shows up on the watch," said Shannon Gotthelf, a spokeswoman for Fossil. "When users are unable to answer their phone, the call can be muted or sent to voice mail by pressing a button."

The watch also deals with text messages. Users are alerted by an envelope icon that they have received a message.

The Bluetooth watches also have a feature to keep consumers from misplacing their cell phones, an everyday annoyance for many cell phone owners. When users' watches and cell phones are separated by 10 meters the watches vibrate slightly to alert the users that they are moving away from their phones.
