The Weather Channel said it is powering a new weather app for the Pebble smartwatch platform that providers the wearer with current weather conditions and access to a three-day forecast that is given with a shake of the wrist.
“Using best-in-class forecasts from The Weather Channel, this app gives you the basic weather information you want, at a glance and where you need it,” said Mike Finnerty, senior vice president and general manager of platform products and distribution at The Weather Company, parent to The Weather Channel, in a statement. “The launch screen shows your current time and temperature, and then shake your wrist to get a three-day forecast.”
The new app is one of more than 3,000 that are now available for Pebble-made waterproof smartwatches, which range in price from $150 to $249 and tout a battery life of five to seven days.
