Over the last month or so I’ve been using a Pebble watch. If you’ve not heard of it before, Pebble was the most successfully funded project on kickstarter.com.
Basically, it’s a watch that can receive notifications from your smart phone. Currently iOS and Android are supported and you connect via bluetooth.
You can get sms messages, emails and even Facebook updates to your watch as well as being able to control your music player using the official app as well as changing the clock face.
If like me you are using Android there are additional apps available to do other stuff: I managed to easily configure cricket updates for each wicket and at milestones all to the watch.
It all works very well and when someone else sees you checking out a text message many look in disbelief. It’s a great bit of kit and works really well in meetings where you can just put your phone on silence and when you get an email, a quick glance at your watch and you can tell if it’s important or not.
