Allerta intros Pebble smartwatch, inPulse's attractive younger sibling
Remember the inPulse Smartwatch? Say hello to its attractive younger sibling, the Pebble e-paper watch. Allerta’s latest creation — which is launching today on Kickstarter for $99 in three colors — is “the first smartwatch to offer full iPhone and iOS compatibility”. It features a 1.26-inch 144×168-pixel black and white e-paper display with backlight, Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR, four buttons, a vibrating motor and a three-axis accelerometer. The battery is expected to last more than seven days on a charge.

Pebble receives call, email and message notifications from iOS and Android devices over Bluetooth. It supports downloadable watchfaces and activity-specific watchapps for controlling music, cycling, running and golfing. Allerta’s even teamed up with Freecaddie to create a rangefinder app for over 25,000 golf courses worldwide. The timepiece can run several watchapps simultaneously — these can be installed over Bluetooth using the Pebble App for iOS and Android (2.3 or higher) and developed using the Pebble SDK.

Color choices include white, black, red and a fourth hue to be voted on by early backers of the project — hurray to crowdsourcing. Pricing is $99 on Kickstarter today and $149 at retail later this year. Want more info? Check out the gallery below, then hit the break for the PR details and the Kickstarter link.

New Kickstarter Projectm ‘Pebble’ Revamps The InPulse Smartwatch, Makes It Prettier And More Functional

2012-04-11 11h34_09

Remember the InPulse smartwatch? Looks like the crew behind that nifty little device learned a lot from their initial watch creation, and now they’ve hit Kickstarter with a new project called Pebble.

Pebble is basically an upgrade to InPulse, as it offers quite a few enhancements over its predecessor. It has a 144×168 e-ink display, Bluetooth, a vibrating motor, and three axis accelerometer; it’s also fully compatible with Android and iOS.

It doesn’t skimp on usefulness, either. Since it connects to your smartphone over Bluetooth, it can alert you of incoming calls, emails, and SMS/MMS messages; control most popular media players (like Pandora and Google Music), and has support for proprietary apps.  Of course, even will all of its bells and whistles, Pebble is still a watch at its core – a watch with a seven-day battery life (thanks to its e-ink display, no doubt).

That’s not all though – this thing has its own apps, too (and some pretty rad options, might I add). You can find novelty apps like a binary clock, Pong clock, odometer clock (after all, it is a watch), or go for the more…
