Remember the InPulse smartwatch? Looks like the crew behind that nifty little device learned a lot from their initial watch creation, and now they've hit Kickstarter with a new project called Pebble.
Pebble is basically an upgrade to InPulse, as it offers quite a few enhancements over its predecessor. It has a 144x168 e-ink display, Bluetooth, a vibrating motor, and three axis accelerometer; it's also fully compatible with Android and iOS.
It doesn't skimp on usefulness, either. Since it connects to your smartphone over Bluetooth, it can alert you of incoming calls, emails, and SMS/MMS messages; control most popular media players (like Pandora and Google Music), and has support for proprietary apps. Of course, even will all of its bells and whistles, Pebble is still a watch at its core - a watch with a seven-day battery life (thanks to its e-ink display, no doubt).
