The Pebble smartwatch is out in the UK today – and there’s already a tonne of great apps available on the platform. Here’s our pick of the ten best.
Want to check your tweets whilst lying in bed? Twebble will let you view your timeline and even post tweets using a keyboard controlled by the three buttons – yes, it is exactly as fiddly as it sounds but it is some impressive engineering.
There are lots of different remote apps available for Pebble that will let you control different devices but Skipstone does it best. It’s compatible with a wide range of different media players, including VLC, Plex, XBMC and WDTV – and it will support multiple remotes at the same time. Meaning you can use your watch to pause your film whatever app it is playing on.
Getting things configured can be a little tricky, depending on how your media player is configured, but if you know what an IP address is, you should be fine.
Want to navigate somewhere without getting your phone out? PebbGPS astonishingly manages to squeeze maps on to your Pebble’s screen and will direct you on where to go. Brilliant for cycling when you phone is stuck in your pocket.
A wrist-based companion to the popular exercise app, RunKeeper will let you keep an eye on lap times and other vital analytics straight from your wrist – so no need to faff about with your phone.
