CES 2013: Pebble watch is smart, stylish

1:11 /

The new $150 Pebble watch connects to phones wirelessly and looks slick doing it.

Hey guys, this is Brian Bennett at CES 2013. And we are taking a first look at the new Pebble Smart watch and this device is basically the result of a Kickstarter project. Basically we've got a device that connects to smartphones either iOS or Android and it also let you run an app and control all the basic functions of the watch and see notifications from your phone such as Facebook, Twitter, e-mail, all that kind of stuff. It also has a E Ink style LCD display that enables you to read it outdoors in sunlight which is something a lot of watches can't do very well. You can also change the watch faces, set customer alerts via the app or through the Cloud and change functionality overtime. So all and all it's a very sleek watch. It is very think, very lightweight, comes in multiple colors and would cost $150 and should be shipping by January 23rd. So there you have it folks. This has been a first look at the Pebble.
