You cannot have a palm sized big-iPhone all the time, sometimes you need a small and a smart device to do the same. While jogging or cycling you will not keep your eye on your iPhone all the time. Today in this post we will talk about a smart watch named as Pebble which will get itself integrated with your watch and thus you will only have to take out your iPhone from your pocket unless it is really important. This watch can be used for iPhone (iOS5.0 or iOS6.0) and Android phones (version 2.3 and up) and as of now they are not compatible with Windows Phone 7 and Blackberry.
