Whiteleys - London
My Pebble watch finally arrived in the post, all the way from Singapore.
It was approx. six months ago that I backed the Pebble Kickstarter project. Out of the choice of colours, I went for black, which means I am apparently among the first wave of recipients.
(Stamped proudly on the back of the watch is ‘Kickstarter edition’ - will be a collectors’ item one day?)
Getting the Pebble watch up and running is easy. You attach the charger (not a universal charger, it’s a specially designed one - so I must try very hard not to lose it) click on go.getpebble.com on both the watch and your mobile phone (iPhones or selected Android phones only), download the Pebble app to the phone and, using bluetooth, connect the two devices together.
Boom. Within two minutes I was able to select from about eight watch faces; control music on my phone (you can play, pause and skip music using the Pebble watch) and choose whether to answer phone calls, without the need to take my iPhone out of my pocket.
Went to News Rewired the other day. Keynote speaker was Vadim Lavrusik, journalism programme manager at Facebook.
