Pebble built by inPulse is a customizable watch. It has downloadable watchfaces and internet-connected apps that you can view from your watch.
Pebble connects to iPhone and Android smartphones using Bluetooth, alerting you with a silent vibration to incoming calls, emails and messages.
Some apps that are being built are:
- Cyclists can use Pebble as a bike computer, accessing the GPS on your smartphone to display speed, distance and pace data.
- Runners get a similar set of data displayed on their wrist. Use the music control app to play, pause or skip tracks on your phone with the touch of a button.
- If you’re a golfer, bring Pebble onto the course. inPulse is working with Freecaddie to create a great golf rangefinder app for Pebble that works on over 25,000 courses world-wide. Instead of using your phone, view your current distance to the green right on your wrist.
