The Pebble is a watch like no other. Rather than a traditional watchface it has a small e-ink screen, just like a Kindle, and links up to your Android or iPhone via bluetooth. Then using an app on your phone you can customise the watch face, and set it up to notify you on your watch on receipt of text messages or emails or other things, through either vibration or playing a sound. What’s cool is that there’s also a Pebble App Store, which enables you to do lots more with your watch - at least in theory. The bonus is that it looks pretty slick - and because it has an e-ink screen, the battery will take about a week before it needs recharging.
