Choose your favourite watchfaces using Pebble's iPhone or Android app. Then as the day progresses, effortlessly switch to the one that matches your mood, activity or outfit," notes the product description.
For the uninitiated, the Pebble smartwatch sports a 1.26-inch screen with e-paper technology, which implies that the screen is visible clearly even under harsh sunlight. The device also packs in a rechargeable battery that is capable of lasting you a week on a single charge. Moreover, the Pebble smartwatch is also waterproof.
