Pebble: E-Paper Watch for iPhone and Android


Wed, May 2nd, 2012 20:00 by capnasty NEWS

Having a cellphone means that I hardly ever use watches anymore. I get all my information from my mobile device, including the time. The Pebble tries to bring back the love of watches with a highly-customizable wrist-device that not only can you give the time with customizable clock faces, but also provide complete interactivity with your phone.

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!
