We’re sharing more feedback from our Pebble reporter: Ever go to a wedding when your favorite team is playing and get yelled at for checking your phone to see the score?  Problem solved. The Pebble has you covered– scores via ESPN on your wrist!  Curious how your stocks are doing?  No problem, check them from your wrist (but you still have to trade them from your computer…at the moment). Ever wish your analogue watch had a digital look?  Yeah, probably not, but now you can make your digital watch look like an analoue, or a digital, or a clock, or a comic strip, or like many other things.  There are a lot of different watch faces that can be downloaded which will not only tell you the date and time, but also the weather, calendar appointments, and a host of other things.
