The Pebble Watch was funded by a crowd-funding company called Kickstarter. All it took to contribute was a dollar, and 283 backers jumped in.  The watch supports blue tooth and connects to your phone to check emails or get alerts to take your meds, for example.  It is water resistant.  There have been smart watches out before and this is not the first, but the design and connection to the cell phone might be the trick here.  Battery life is stated to be about 7 days.  You can listen to music, take it on the golf course and it can track GPS information from your bike. You can shake your wrist to dismiss a message. A watch with apps!  The watches have all sold out and will ship in September with “backers” getting the option to buy first.


Apps bring Pebble to life. We’re building some amazing apps for Pebble. Cyclists can use Pebble as a bike computer, accessing the GPS on your smartphone to display speed, distance and pace data. Runners get a similar set of data displayed on their wrist. Use the music control app to play, pause or skip tracks on your phone with the touch of a button. If you’re a golfer, feel free to bring Pebble onto the course. We’re working with Freecaddie to create a great golf rangefinder app for Pebble that works on over 25,000 courses world-wide. Instead of using your phone, view your current distance to the green right on your wrist. These apps will be the first, with more in the works!
