A few months ago, a Kickstarter project by the name of "Pebble" made some huge waves by raking in over a million dollars in funding sales. Suddenly, intelligent watches seem to be all the rage again, despite being a product category that largely died years back due to flaky support and bad battery life. Is it time for the segment to make a comeback? Sure seems it, as even Sony
's getting back in the loop. The company's new SmartWatch is now available at Verizon Wireless, making it majorly accessible to millions of customers who already rely on VZW for cellular service.
