Last week we featured the Pebble E-Paper smartwatch concept which has been designed to provide a link to your iOS or Android smartphone from your wrist. Providing you with updates and messages as they arrive on your smartphone, and allowing you to connect to the phones GPS and systems.
The awesome watch concept is opening new avenues for developers and users, brining real-life functionality to your wrist, and just a few days after starting to raise pledges from the Kickstarter community. The Pebble Watch project has now passed the $3 million mark in pledges, and is still climbing with 32 days still to go.
The Pebble smartwatch is capable of loading applications and can be customised, and even programmed to suit your exact requirements. Watch the video below to see its creators talk you though their concept.
“Pebble is the first watch built for the 21st century. It’s infinitely customizable, with beautiful downloadable watchfaces and useful internet-connected apps. Pebble connects to iPhone and Android smartphones using Bluetooth, alerting you with a silent vibration to incoming calls, emails and messages. While designing Pebble, we strove to create a minimalist yet fashionable product that seamlessly blends into everyday life.”
So if you think the Pebble smartwatch is something you could benefit from, jump over to the Kickstarter website to make your pledge and help the Pebble make the jump from concept to production.
