Time for a digital watch revolution
Migicovsky is the latest hotshot as his start-up company rolls out its new, high-tech Pebble smart watches. The $150 postage stamp-sized computer on a band is tethered wirelessly to a wearer’s smartphone.
With hands truly free, wearers can also read texts, see who is calling them, scan Twitter or Facebook feeds and, yes, check the time, while digging in their garden, barbecuing a steak or — as he was doing when he conceived the idea — riding a bike when his phone began to ring.
And that’s just the first version.
