The Pebble company put up this Kickstarter project to raise $100,000 a few months back and ended up collecting over $10 million in a few days. What was special about it was that it heralded the marketing of smart watches of the future for a low cost of $150, and everyone wanted to see it happen, and everyone wanted to buy one and show off to their friends.
Pebble Epaper Watch
Available in five colours, the pebble watch will provide vibrating alerts and notifications, which you can dismiss with shaking your wrist only. So what are these alerts? it could be incoming caller ID, alarms, Twitter messages, Facebook updates, new e-mail, calendar alerts or weather updates!
The pebble watch is powered by 144 x 168 pixel black and white e-paper display, with built-in Bluetooth and a 3 axis accelerometer. Pebble connects by Bluetooth to your iPhone or Android device, and can download apps via Bluetooth from the developing App Store. The pebble watch is water resistant, and is charged by a USB cable with a battery life of up to 7 days on a single charge.
This smart watch will change the way you use your watch forever.
