The USB cable is the best thing to happen to watches since the removable strap. I’ve had my ups and downs with the Nike+ GPS watch. Great concept but poorly executed. Awful typeface, gps worked sometimes and the site that showed my data was pretty limited. What it did show me was that a watch didn’t need a normal battery. I just had to connect it to my USB port on my air to charge it.
The new pebble is about to kickstart something that is long overdue. It does not rely on old battery power, it can talk with the most used devices in the world and it gives an opportunity to improve dialog between the device in a persons pocket and available action on their wrist. There’s opportunities there that no one else has opened up yet. I’m petty excited about what will be contributed. Thinking back I cant recall saying that about anything I’ve paid for before.
This is why I love and will wear this Pebble: E-Paper Watch for iPhone and Android
