As of today, the classic Pebble Smart Watch is available in three limited edition colors, including Fly Blue, Hot Pink, and Fresh Green. The bright neon colors are a deviation from Pebble's line of classic smart watches, previously available in Jet Black, Gray, Arctic White, Orange, and Cherry Red.
Pebble's new color variations extend to both the face and the band, which remains interchangeable, but the new watches are only available in limited quantities. Watchfaces to accompany the new colors can be downloaded from the Pebble app store, as can a new Weather app from The Weather Channel.
Fresh Green, Hot Pink, and Fly Blue are standout shades that give any look the right dose of fun. Fresh, Hot, and Fly come with matching bands and—just like the rest of the Pebble lineup—are fully customizable with the skins and bands of your choice. We're having lots of fun mixing and matching bands around between the different colors ourselves.
Hand-in-hand with the debut of Fresh, Hot, and Fly are new watchfaces to enjoy on the Pebble appstore. We’ve got text faces in Fresh, Hot, and Fly and an amazing new app by The Weather Channel (appstore links available later today).
First introduced in 2012, Pebble's classic smart watch connects to the iPhone via Bluetooth LE, delivering alerts and notifications. The watch is water resistant with a 5 to 7 day battery life and includes changeable watch faces and a readable daylight display. Pebble also sells its second-generation Pebble Steel smart watch, which includes a stainless steel body, a slimmer profile, and a face covered with scratch-resistant Gorilla Glass.
The Fly Blue, Hot Pink, and Fresh Green Pebble smart watches can be purchased from the Pebble website for $150.

I backed it on Kickstarter as I knew I'd find it useful. And I do. It is one of those devices that I now can't imagine being without. The last device to do that for me was my first iPhone.
My phone is generally in my pocket, on silent. Even if it's not on silent and I'm out somewhere I often won't hear it. Now I never miss a call or a text. Ever. I'm at the supermarket and my wrist buzzes and my wife is asking me to pick up Oranges. Before I would go home with no Oranges and to an angry wife. Now I have Oranges and a happy wife.
Controlling music in the car is a doddle. Get in car, 3 quick presses on the middle button - without looking - and music plays. Skipping a track is done without taking my eyes of the road at all. Even at home when I'm streaming music from my phone I can now skip, pause, adjust volume etc, all without having to actually pick up the phone or pull it out of my pocket.
The apps etc I don't tend to use much - occasionally Run Keeper but that's about it. I'm not even massively bothered about different watchfaces although my son (8) thinks it's cool. In fact he said to me the other day "Dad, when you die can I have your watch?". I'm only 36 so I'm hoping to outlast the watch!
I'm interested in the iWatch, but it's gotta be as simple to use and the battery has to last a week, or at least 3-4 days.
There, I fixed it. :)
Exciting enough to post about it.
Cell phones are overrated as timepieces.
