Eric Migicovsky had a simple goal when he signed up for Kickstarter. To raise $100,000 for his invention. Today, he has raised over 10 million with almost 70,000 backers donating. The product is called Pebble, a watch that pairs with your Smartphone via Bluetooth to make watches more functional than ever before.

The watch is infinitely customizable, with beautiful downloadable watch faces and useful internet-connected apps. The watch alerts you of incoming phone calls and emails, controls your music, and even keeps you up to date on the weather, but where it really stands out is in its ability to run various apps.

His Kickstarter page and watches can be viewed here. The amazing Pebble watches can help with vibrating notifications, messages and alerts. Dismiss a notification with a shake of your wrist. Pebble also displays incoming caller ID, email, calendar alerts, Facebook messages, Twitter, weather alerts and comes with a Silent vibrating alarm and timer.
