Here at GadgetStylist we love tech, even those that aren’t out yet and when we caught wind of the new Pebble watch for iPhone and Android it was worth sharing with you.
We found this news on Kickstarter which is a great place for people to pitch their ideas and plans for products they want to create, and helps them gather the necessary funding to make their dream come true.
As they say them self, the Pebble is the first watch built for the 21st century. Not completely true as the Sony Smartwatch is already out and does similar tricks to this but the Pebble is completely customisable with the ability to add new watch faces and add useful internet-connected apps.
The Pebble will connect to iPhone’s as well as Android phones whereas the Sony will only connect fully to the Sony Xperia S, and almost all functionality on other Android devices. This features this phone promises can be used for running and cycling connecting to your phones GPS to track distance and time, it can control the music playing on your phone so if you’ve it docked in a speaker system so without moving you can switch track or volume, read texts and notices, or dismiss calls with the shake of your wrist.
The screen is made from e-paper which from the video on Kickstarter looks very similar to that of the Kindles E-Ink displays. It will be available in 3 colours, Arctic White, Jet Black and Cherry Red, as well as one choice you can vote for.
Now on Kickstarter we can see there have been 45,109 backers to the project and so far pledged $6,645,515 of the $100,000 with 22 days left, so it is safe to say they have the backing to create this. With 22 days left you can still back it so go ahead. Us iPhone users really want a watch that can connect to it.
There’s so many more features to this phone that I just cannot list here, so check it out for yourself, follow the link above.
