The latest technology crazy is here and it’s in the form of a wrist watch. The new craze in the technology world is called “wearable tech” and the idea is to have access to your smart phone through bluetooth access or cloud systems.
The Pebble is a new fully customizable “smart watch” that connects to your iPhone and Android systems through bluetooth and allows you to display incoming text messages or phone calls on your watch and even lets you run apps off your watch.
If you run or cycle with your phone, Pebble uses the GPS off your phone to give you your speed, time and miles you’ve traveled on the face of your watch. Pebble can even control music and works with the your phones music apps, so no more changing the music with your phone, you can do it flawlessly and fast with Pebble. You can even set up notifications through a cloud system to send reminders to your watch. Pebble has a built-in mini vibrator that alerts you of an incoming call, message or notification.
When you get a Pebble you download an app on your smart phone and you have access to a “watch” store that allows you to download apps right to your watch. Just browse through the app store, click download and it downloads automatically onto your watch wirelessly, fast and easy.
Pebble comes in three colors, white, black and red and is pretty small and fairly light, only weighing 38.2 grams. It also has a high-resolution screen which allows you to read and look at your watch outside in direct sunlight. It even allows you to change the clock face on your watch to anything of your liking.
The great thing about Pebble is that it isn’t as expensive as some of the other smart watches out there, only costing $150, which is what some people pay for regular watches with no technology in them.
I think this is a great little device and would love to get my hands on one to try it out. The idea of getting all of your notifications or controlling music and running apps on your wrist watch is crazy and pretty convenient, especially if you’re doing something and you get a call you can just check your watch to see who it is instead of putting your hand in your pocket and checking your phone.
Best thing about Pebble is that it is a pretty stylish watch. It’s not big or bulky like you would think a smart watch would be, it’s very small and sleek and if you didn’t know, you would think it was just a regular watch.
