The Pebble SmartWatch For iPhone
If you go out in public, sooner or later you are bound to see someone on their smart phone. Some people complain that smart phones are “dehumanizing” or that they take away from personal relationships, but we all know that smart phones are incredibly useful for many tasks, as well as for entertainment.
Smart phones are quite an amazing invention, but wouldn’t it be even more amazing if someone could incorporate your smart phone into your watch? For years the popularity of the iPhone has grown, it’s percentage of the smartphone market moving up from 10% to 25% in the past 2 years. It was always thought to be just a dream to have the functionality of a smart phone incorporated into a watch, but with the progression of the SmartWatch, that dream is quickly becoming a reality. While there are currently a few watches out there on the market that can be called “Smart Watches”, there is currently only one working SmartWatch on the public market that works with the iPhone. This version of the SmartWatch is called The Pebble.
The Pebble started out on Kickstarter, raising it’s goal of $100,000 in just 2 hours and setting a Kickstarter record by raising over $10,000,000. The Pebble did not lose any popularity after this huge boost of exposure, as it essentially started up the SmartWatch market singlehandedly.
While The Pebble does not have all the functionality and other features that the iPhone has, it is definitely on it’ way to it. The Pebble allows users to utilize many apps available to their smart phone by allowing them to get scores from their favorite teams, read text messages sent to their phone, track the distance of their run, and many other features. There are many developers around the world currently developing apps that are able to be used through The Pebble.
Here is a list of just a few of the features of The Pebble:
