Apps bring Pebble to life. Cyclists can use Pebble as a bike computer, accessing the GPS on your smartphone to display speed, distance and pace data. Runners get a similar set of data displayed on their wrist. You can use the music control app to play, pause or skip tracks on your phone with the touch of a button.
Pebble connects to iPhone and Android phones using Bluetooth, alerting you with a silent vibration to incoming calls, emails and messages.
We didn’t have to wait so long for Jewish “face” of Pebble watch.
Ary Tebeka, Israeli developer, which has in his portfolio already few iPhone apps just released first Jewish app for Pebble.
“As a good high tech gadget fan, I pre-ordered a Pebble watch and I was very excited when finally received mine about 10 days ago” – told us Ary Tebeka – “I immediately searched for some kind of Hebrew watch face or app… I searched the Pebble Forum, and found discussion, initiated by my friend Jeremie Berrebi.”
Seeing that there was no real progress from others, Ary has decided to write his own Jewish watch for Pebble. The end result is TBK Jewish Watch 1.0.
“Now I plan to co-develop with my brother Haim (developer of Pocket Luach for iOS) a full-featured Luach app for Pebble” – he says.
A Jewish calendar/zmanim watchface for the Pebble includes:
- Gregorian date
- Moon phase
- Jewish date
- Number of the zman/jewish hour, and time until next
- Sun Graph, showing day/night parts and needle showing now
- Sunrise (Netz), MidDay (Hatsot), Sunset (Skhia)
