Author's Note: How the Pebble Watch Works

I don't own a smart watch. Not yet, anyway. That's probably because I feel like I already tinker around with technology far too much and that adding yet another device to my life would be another unnecessary distraction. Then again, my smartphone is already a pain in the neck that I wish would just go away. Perhaps with a smart watch I'd spend less time messing with the phone and more time actually getting things done.
