The multi-million-dollar Kickstarter sensation Pebble smart watch will begin shipping to the first customers later this month. The Pebble sells for USD$149 (about RM447) and is available in black, grey, red, orange, and white. This news is recently announced at CES.
The watch uses a 1.26-inch display and has a resolution of 144 by 168 pixels. Charging uses a magnetic cable that clips to the side of the device allowing some water resistance rating of 5ATM.
Messages and alerts will be sent from an iPhone or Android device to the Pebble. The watch is fully customizable, and has lots of options for watchfaces and, if you're handy with scripts or codes, you can write your own customaization with the Pebble SDK.
It looks like the trend now is headed with wearable miniaturized computers, with both glasses and watches.
