The San Francisco Marathon is just around the corner! While I don't think I am as fully prepared as I would like, I am super excited!
I recently had the opportunity as a San Francisco Marathon Ambassador to play with a shiny new toy - The Pebble Watch. Pebble, a local Bay Area company, has partnered with the SF Marathon to launch a race day app, specifically for all Pebble watch wearers to track their progress on race day!
The watch syncs to my android via blue tooth technology and allows me to access texts, emails, music, and apps. I also created my very own custom watch face! The Pebble is also a great running tool! I sync the Pebble up with the Strava app to track my miles and pace while out on a run training for The San Francisco Marathon. The sync between Pebble and Strava is only available on Android.
Pebble charges via a USB cable and the battery life of the watch is 7 days. The side buttons make it easy to control all features mentioned above.
Honestly, there is so much you can do, I have not even began to explore all the wonderful qualities the Pebble has to offer.
What I also love about the Pebble is since they started their funding campaign in Kickstarter, they give back by supporting other Kickstarter campaigns. Most recently, Pebble offered limited edition versions of their watch as rewards to backers assisting with the Reading Rainbow campaign! This just warms my heart as I loved watching Reading Rainbow as a kid. I like when companies support others. It not only stands them out from the crowd, but I am more apt to support them and the product.
I can't wait to run with the Pebble out on the SF Marathon course!
