I want a Pebble smart watch. I MUST HAVE ONE. It seems like a lot of other people agree: more than 13,300 people have pledged money to its Kickstarter campaign, generating $1.8m for its manufacturer to actually make it.
What is it? A stylish-looking watch that connects to your iPhone or Android smartphone via Bluetooth to get alerts when someone calls, texts or emails you. But it can also run apps, like fitness, sports and music.
It’ll cost $150+ when it goes on sale in the Autumn, but a pledge of $115 gets you on the list for the initial run. Or you can pledge $1,000 to get a ‘distributor pack’ of 10, or $1,250 for a custom watchface created “just for you”. Amazing.
