Pebble Kickstarter Info:
We’ve been making smartwatches for almost 7 years now. Our ultimate goal is to make Pebble an indispensable tool in your daily life by helping you accomplish more each and every day. While developing software for the original Pebble, we uncovered an important problem: apps are an inefficient way to interact with a smartwatch. As we increased functionality by adding more apps, our Pebbles clogged up. It became harder to quickly find the app we wanted. No one wants to manage another homescreen! To make Pebble infinitely more useful, we needed an expandable system for organizing information and interactions. Luckily, the answer was right up our sleeves.

      These smart watches seem like they could definitely be pretty useful eventually when they’re more perfected.

      The watch concept reminds me an old science fiction idea. I definitely intend on getting a device similar to this in the future.
