28 hours with a Pebble Smartwatch

I decided I wanted to be on the forefront of the Smartwatch revolution. For all practical purposes, I’m late. I now own a Pebble Smartwatch and intend to develop apps for it.

My first 28 hours were a delight.

It fits nicely. And naturally tells the date and time.


I can pay for my coffee by scanning that bar code (under the birds).


And the watch gives me directions without my eyes leaving the road.

These are the early days of smartwatches. Essentially we are seeing the proof of concept and the vetting of the potential for these devices. And the potential is huge!
