eBay’s Pebble App at the Forefront of Wearable Technology
By: Ana Cantu
As a company, eBay Inc. is committed to creating a superior shopping experience that merges commerce and the latest technology. With the eBay for Pebble smart watch app, we’re giving our customers a new way to blend personalized tech and multi-screen mobile shopping via their wearable devices.
“Personalization will be key for the future of mobile – creating seamless experiences for shoppers on the go. eBay Inc. allows consumers to shop anytime, anywhere and on any screen,” says Steve Yankovich, vice president of innovation and new ventures at eBay Inc.
And personalization technology isn’t just about shopping.
“Wearable devices are the next frontier. For example, consumers didn’t ask for pedometers and sleep monitors just a few years ago but mobile has spawned new trends, in this case wearable fitness monitors. This is the signal that wearables will be a force,” says Yankovich.
The eBay for Pebble app allows users to:
- Browse and discover items that match their interests
- Review their eBay Feeds
- Quickly watch items to save for later
- View item details
The eBay for Pebble app is available for free download in the both the iTunes and Google Play stores.
