It’s Time to Rethink What a Watch Can Do with the Pebble Smartwatch Available at AT&T
AT&T is the Exclusive Carrier for Customizable Watch that Fits Your Lifestyle
Dallas, Texas, September 25, 2013
It’s time to rethink what a watch can be. As the most successful KickStarter campaign to date, the Pebble smartwatch extends control of your iOS or Android smartphone while giving you options to customize with apps for an active lifestyle. Beginning September 27, AT&T customers can purchase the Pebble for $150 at att.com and in select retail stores with broader availability expected in October.
The Pebble smartwatch is a customizable, Bluetooth enabled smartwatch that wirelessly connects to your smartphone. Call alerts, emails, and text notifications all appear on the Pebble as they arrive to your phone. No need to pull out your smartphone to see who is trying to get your attention. Perfect for runners, cyclists, golfers or anyone with a busy or active lifestyle, the e-paper display makes the watch incredibly easy to read whether indoors or outside and it’s water resistant to boot. Users can also download applications onto their Pebble from a host of third party developers.
“As the exclusive carrier for the hot new Pebble smartwatch, this innovative device adds to AT&T’s extensive lineup of industry leading accessories for today’s connected world,” said Michael Cowan, Director, Accessory Portfolio, AT&T Mobility. “This smartwatch is fun, practical, and easy to use. It is simple to see why people have been clamoring to get their hands on it.”
The Pebble stands out from other smartwatches because of its customization options and its open development platform that allows developers to build new apps. Key features include:
Press a button to change the watchface to fit your personal style. Download new watchfaces and applications, or design your own through existing third party sites.
Great line-up of pre-loaded and downloadable apps perfect for runners, cyclists, golfers or those who are just busy.
Music is only a click away. Play, pause, or skip tracks on your phone with simple controls on Pebble. Glance down at your watch to see the artist and the track name that is playing without missing a beat.
Custom notifications keep you informed without being a distraction. Incoming caller ID, calendar alerts, social media messages, weather alerts and more.
Rechargeable battery can last up to seven days.
Water resistant rated 5ATM.
