The Pebble Smartwatch is a smartwatch developed by Pebble Technology Corporation and was released in 2013 after receiving huge support and funding though crowdfunding platform Kickstarter.
The watch comes with a black and white Sharp Memory LCD, a programmable CPU, memory, storage, Bluetooth, a vibrating motor, a magnetometer (aka compass!), an ambient light sensor, and an accelerometer. These make the watch more than just a watch, and extend it to interacting with smartphone notifications, activity tracking, gaming, map display, golf tracking, and more. The Pebble is compatible with Android and iOS devices.
The notifications on the Pebble Watch are definitely a big plus of the watch, together with the good battery life and the tons of apps you can sync with.
The Pebble app store has over 1,000 applications developed using Pebble's free software.
The Pebble watch comes with some downsides: you need a lot of time to set it up properly. On top of that you can only add 8 apps on the watch, which limits the possibilities.
