I think part of the reason why I was able to get into running was because I was able to download a C25K program on my iPhone. Almost every single run I've been on, I've had my trusty iPhone with me. Yes, part of it is for personal safety, part of it is for having music and part of it is so I can collect as much data from my run as possible. When I ordered the Pebble on Kickstarter, I was thrilled since they were already talking about RunKeeper working with the Pebble. Last December, I switched to using RunKeeper, and found it's a slick app for tracking your runs, shoes (love this function!) and makes it easier to review all of your stats (the engineer in me loves that!). The app and the website are both very stable (which I can't say for some other free running apps I've used in the past...)
Since I wanted the red Pebble, I had to wait until this month to get my watch. The red was totally worth the wait! The color has a depth due to the clear coat over the whole watch face, which really makes it looks a bit slicker than the black Pebble my husband has. The black Pebble has that serious air to it, while red is a bit more fun and flashy. We both got the right color! :)
I will say, I was little worried about the size of the Pebble's face. I knew it was going to be on the large size, to accommodate the required screen real estate. But I have "girly wrists", so I was worried it was going to look or feel cumbersome. I have to say, they got the screen size perfect, it's big enough for long winded texts, but small enough that it doesn't stick out past my wrist.
