    The Pebble wristwatch, conceived by Eric Migicovsky, is a $115 device with an e-paper face, which is able to show different watchfaces, run sports and fitness apps and show notifications from your phone (such as new emails).

    This one is capable to connect to iPhone and Android smartphones using Bluetooth, alerting you with a silent vibration to incoming calls, emails and messages.

    The project started on Kickstarter, and has already collected almost 9 million USD, from an initial $100,000 goal.

    Check out the video below, which shows a real, working prototype. There's not release date yet, but there are still 11 days left for the Kickstarter project to finish, so be sure to check it out too, if you want more details.
