I have my Pebble Steel on order and got to thinking today how the Pebble is kind of like the Palm Pilot of smart watches. It's a the first one to really work and it has some traction amongst the super geeky - but most people won't be buying one until Apple comes out with theirs.
An ad I saw today for the Pebble actually read "Multi Color LED". Haha. The face of the Steel is black "e-ink" (like the original Kindle). If you look at the Palm Pilot below - it's basically the same thing!
I wonder how long it will take until we are at the point of a smart watch being as ubiquitous as retina display phones?
Heres a visual history of just some of my geekery showing itself.
Original Palm Pilot
Kyocera 7135, I LOVED THIS PHONE!
Motorola StarTAC, this phone lasted forever
Palm Treo, first work phone with email. Only 7 or 8 years ago!
This visual list doesn't even have my original iPad, the second generation iPad, an iPad mini, and 21 keyboard cases.
This is where my money goes!
