AT&T has just added a device watch to its smartwatch lineup. The carrier will begin selling the Pebble smartwatch as an exclusive on Sept. 27 in its retail stores and online.
AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, and T-Mobile have already announced that they will be offering Samsung's Galaxy Gear smartwatch to customers in October. The device is the first smartwatch to be offered by all four major carriers and will initially be sold as an accessory for the Galaxy Note 3. AT&T likes to set itself apart from its three rivals and is doing it once again by adding another smartwatch to its lineup. It has announced that it will be the exclusive carrier of the Pebble smartwatch.
"As the exclusive carrier for the hot new Pebble smartwatch, this innovative device adds to AT&T's extensive lineup of industry leading accessories for today's connected world," said Michael Cowan, Director, Accessory Portfolio, AT&T Mobility. "This smartwatch is fun, practical, and easy to use. It is simple to see why people have been clamoring to get their hands on it."
The Pebble stands out from other smartwatches because of its customization options and its open development platform that allows developers to build new apps. Key features include:
- Press a button to change the watchface to fit your personal style. Download new watchfaces and applications, or design your own through existing third party sites.
- Great line-up of pre-loaded and downloadable apps perfect for runners, cyclists, golfers or those who are just busy.
- Music is only a click away. Play, pause, or skip tracks on your phone with simple controls on Pebble. Glance down at your watch to see the artist and the track name that is playing without missing a beat.
- Custom notifications keep you informed without being a distraction. Incoming caller ID, calendar alerts, social media messages, weather alerts and more.
- Rechargeable battery can last up to seven days.
- Water resistant rated 5ATM.
