Pebble

  • Pebble – a waiting game…

    [* Updated 17 May 2013]

    I decided to write this post because I've been playing a long-term waiting game for the pebble watch, and I really don’t want to take up half of a review with my views on the delivery process when it eventually arrives. Just to remind you the pebble is a smart watch where the greater percentage of the intelligence is in a Bluetooth connected smartphone whether that be an iOS or android device. However, the watch would allow you to interact with various bits of software on the phone without ever removing it from your pocket; oh and of course allow you to read the time! It turned out to be a hugely popular kickstarter campaign as they ended up with 68,929 backers and $10,266,845 of their original $100,000 goal.

  • Pebble Watch

    I just can't resist a gadget and here's one that I'm looking forward to getting when they ship in September 2012. [*Update It's now April 2013, and I've just received my shipping notification!]

    In their own words:- 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

  • The Pebble

    I've had the pebble for a couple of months now and I reckon I'm overdue writing up a short review, so here goes.

    Like many other people who purchased the pebble, I haven't actually bought worn a watch for years. However because the watch is so closely integrated with my iPhone, it has become a useful second screen for the phone. What do I mean by this? For those of you not familiar with the pebble, not only does it tell the time, but also allows various notifications from the iPhone to be displayed on the watch screen. The most obvious thing that it can do is show you the phone number of any incoming calls and the text of any SMS messages that come in on the phone.

  • The Pebble has landed!

    Well.... It's finally here - obviously my earlier bleat was not required; it was obviously already in transit.

    It doesn't make that post any less relevant as the delays were dreadful, but hey ho, it's another day and the Pebble has landed.

    No doubt I'll write a proper review of it in the next week or so once I've had a chance to play with it a bit.
