Pebble, the much sought after smartwatch, which set a record for the most successful campaign on crowdfunding platform Kickstarter, was just launched today in Singapore.

Perfect accessory for busy urban dwellers and tech-geeks alike, Pebble connects to your smartphone via Bluetooth and is compatible with iOS, iOS7 Notification and Android operating systems.

From receiving notifications via social media platforms like Twitter and Whatsapp, tracking workout sessions with Runkeeper to taking group photos with PebbleCam, Pebble smartwatch comes with thousands of apps which can fit seamlessly into your daily life.

Black and Red Package

In conjunction with the launch too, Pebble introduces the L Collection, a limited edition range with only 800 units produced worldwide. Featuring a polished white exterior accompanied with interchangeable genuine cowhide leather straps in Aspen White and Midnight Black, the L Collection will retail exclusively at Singapore’s selected EpiCentre and EpiLife stores from 26 May – 26 June, 2014.

On top of that too, pebbler owners and fans can also visit the new online Singapore Pebble site pebble.sg to discuss all things Pebble, which includes yearly Pebble events, discounts on Pebble accessories and a whole suite of after sales services.
