The concept of Pebble’s “smart watch” is simple — a clean interface running useful apps and wrapped in a fashionable watch interface. The key to Pebble’s inevitable success will be its apps.

According to its Kickstarter page, the Pebble E-Paper Watch will ship with the capability to run several apps using some of the functionality of your iPhone or Android smartphone via Bluetooth connection.

For example, bikers can get information about their speed, distance, and total time by using the GPS capabilities of their connected smartphone. Runners will also get a similar functionality.

Pebble’s watch will also allow users to control their music, view notifications like text messages, e-mails, Facebook and Twitter messages, and caller ID, and get golf rangefinder information on more than 25,000 courses worldwide, thanks to a partnership with FreeCaddie.

With Pebble’s overwhelming success on Kickstarter, customers can expect more apps to be created by developers looking to add their services to this new device. The video below shows the Pebble E-Paper Watch in action:
