Pebble smartwatch comes with a black and white e-paper display, a magnetometer, an accelerometer, a vibrating motor and ambient light sensors. The Pebble smartwatch can be used to receive text messages, emails, calls and notifications from the social media, provided that it is connected to a phone. Further, it can also be used as a remote control for phones, or for the cameras and so on. Recently, the Pebble technology corporation announced Pebble 2.1 update.
