Category : Tech News · (2) Comments · by May 8th, 2012

Have been looking for Smartwatch that suitable for running, Sony SmartWatch is one of those available. But it doesn’t seems to have water resistant and review for running usage ain’t good, check on the review here: Sony SmartWatch review.

Recently this watch draw my attention because of good response on Kickstarter. Description: “Pebble is the first watch built for the 21st century. It’s infinitely customizable, with beautiful downloadable watchfaces and useful internet-connected apps. Pebble connects to iPhone and Android smartphones using Bluetooth, alerting you with a silent vibration to incoming calls, emails and messages. While designing Pebble, we strove to create a minimalist yet fashionable product that seamlessly blends into everyday life.
