Pebble is the first watch built for the 21st century. It's infinitely customizable, with beautiful downloadable watchfaces and useful internet-connected apps.

Pebble connects to iPhone and Android smartphones using Bluetooth, alerting you with a silent vibration to incoming calls, emails and messages. While designing Pebble, we strove to create a minimalist yet fashionable product that seamlessly blends into everyday life.

Apps bring Pebble to life. Cyclists can use Pebble as a bike computer, accessing the GPS on your smartphone to display speed, distance and pace data. Runners get a similar set of data displayed on their wrist.

Use the music control app to play, pause or skip tracks on your phone with the touch of a button. If you're a golfer, feel free to bring Pebble onto the course. Pebble is working with Freecaddie to create a great golf rangefinder app for Pebble that works on over 25,000 courses world-wide.

Instead of using your phone, view your current distance to the green right on your wrist.

Pebble can change instantly, thanks to its brilliant, outdoor-readable electronic-paper (e-paper) display. They've designed tons of watchfaces already, with more coming every day.

Choose your favorite watchfaces using Pebble's iPhone or Android app. Then as the day progresses, effortlessly switch to the one that matches your mood, activity or outfit
