Thinking about strapping a color-screened gadget to your wrist in an effort to look even geekier? Why not give the Pebble ($115 and up) a shot instead. Developed by the same minds behind the inPulse smartwatch for Blackberry, the Pebble is an ePaper smartwatch for iOS & Android that connects to your handset via Bluetooth.
Offering wrist-based notifications like caller ID, email, calendar alerts, and Facebook and Twitter messages, the ability to function as a music controller, workout computer, and golf rangefinder, and, of course, a variety of sexy watchfaces for plain ol' time-telling. On Kickstarter now, with shipments to begin in September.
