Smartphones are old news. We all have HD cameras come standard with our phones. We all can video chat at the drop of a hat. We can listen to music, share and post pictures and even watch TV on our smartphones. What is new, is the idea of a smart watch.
Pebble is a tech company that got online funding through the for-profit website Kickstarter to develop its smart watch, a sleek watch face that syncs with your smartphone.
Ever in a situation where you feel your phone vibrate and you want to check it, but you can’t? The Pebble watch alerts you to new messages, texts, emails etc. , which you can read right there on the watch face.
Just like you can personalize your Internet service, like HughesNet from satellitestarinternet.com, you can personalize the the vibration alert, the actual display of the watch face and much more.
The watch runs on a rechargeable battery, and also features technology similar to the Kindle, which reduces glare on the screen.
Because the watch is synced with your smartphone, your music is accessible on your wrist. The watch, which comes in an array of colors including Cherry Red and Arctic White, has buttons to adjust the volume, as well as a “select” button, all on the ride-hand side of the face.
Athletes will also appreciate the watch, which can be used with downloaded apps to track stats while out cycling the roadways or running in your neighborhood.
Pebble is planning to release the first wave of watches January 23rd.
