Pebble has been at most, an interesting device to me. Nothing more than a fancy watch. A fancy watch that I couldn't justify. I gave up wearing watches several years back. Today, Pebble announced a partnership with RunKeeper.
I've always loved RunKeeper for keeping track of jogging. But my biggest gripe, was having to start and stop a run using my phone, which was in a holder on the side of my arm. My second gripe was that it was hard to see my progress and information while I am running. RunKeeper does offer audio cues, but they wore on me rather quickly.
RunKeeper and Pebble are a perfect match. According to the press release you will be able to start and stop a run from the watch and track current progress and other metrics. This may be enough to make me consider purchasing the Pebble.
