I had a chance to chat with Migicovsky after the press conference, who showed off some of his favorite features from the watch. Migicovsky demonstrated Pebble’s “Fuzzy Time” functionality, which gives you plain language time readings (like “Quarter past five”); a binary clock watch face; and how easy it is to control your phone’s music with the watch.
It may just be running a black and white display, but the Pebble feels every bit as exciting as an ultra-powerful tablet. It foretells a new age of devices that are less focused on killer specs, and more about evolving the functionality of devices we already rely on. While its initial delays led to some criticism of the crowdfunding model, the final product looks good enough to show that crowdfunding could be a viable path for many future consumer products.
