It's inevitable, as you get older (and especially once you have kids) Christmas and birthdays become less about what you want and more about making your kids/family happy (Christmas) and trying to forget you're getting old (birthdays).

 

Well, this year for a change, there was something I really wanted for Christmas. I gave the subtle hint here and there and my wife was listening (much appreciated) and got me a new watch for Christmas. It's not just a watch, its a "smart" watch called a Pebble.

 

I love and depend on my iPhone so anything that integrates with it (including my car multimedia system, home entertainment system - I'll discuss this more in a future post, etc.) excites me. Not only that but I love watches, can't stand wearing jewellery but I always loved cool watches so the Pebble is a home run for me in many aspects.

 

So, why am I so enthralled by this device? Here are a few reasons:

 

- It looks nice and the watch faces are customizable/swappable.

 

- As mentioned, it integrates with my phone, alerts of texts, emails and phone calls including a brief summary of those items.

 

- There are some cool apps for it. Everything from fitness apps (7-minute workout), Cool watch faces, and integrated multifunction apps that allow you to view the weather, gps coordinates, control your phone's camera and music, calendar, and my favorite - Find My Phone! When activated, it commands your phone to shout a sonar type noise quite loudly.
