AT&T announced that it will be hawking the Pebble smartwatch come September 27. It will be the first mobile carrier to sell the watch, which not only tells the time but also wirelessly connects to users' smartphones.
Pebble was one of the first smartwatches to debut after itslast year. The watch reached its funding goal of $100,000, and then quickly surpassing it to raise a total of $10.2 million.
