I am a massive watch fan and I love my iPhone, so the Pebble could be the perfect companion!
The Pebble E-Paper Watch is an iPhone and Android compatible watch, which allows you to run apps and interact with your phone directly from your watch. It is both customisable in appearance and functionality, and has a battery life of 7+ days – which certainly exceeds that of an iPhone!
The Pebble comes in three different colours (white, black or red) and watchfaces can be downloaded to change the look of the screen.
And then there’s the technological bit… The Pebble connects to iPhone and Android smartphones using Bluetooth and alerts you with a silent vibration to incoming calls, emails, messages, Facebook messages and Twitter updates. It can also be used for standard apps like a remote control for your music, or a tracker for cycling and running apps.
One of the most exciting features of the watch is the open SDK, which allows the user to create and run their own apps on the Pebble. The possibilities are endless – well, providing that you’re a pretty accomplished app developer!
- Incoming Caller ID
- Email (Gmail or any IMAP email account)
- SMS on both Android and iPhones
- iMessage (iOS only)
- Calendar Alerts
- Facebook Messages
- Weather Alerts
- Silent vibrating alarm and timer
The Pebble retails at $150 and is available to pre-order from their website here
