Built to hack, the Allerta inPulse watch may not be for everyone but it’s the world’s first watch for BlackBerry. Created and designed with a passion for mobile development by a small team of engineers from Waterloo, Canada, this watch offers a canvas for anyone interested in creating a new watch experience on the inPulse. The watch comes in two colors, silver and black (as shown above) and retails for $149 and $199 online respectively. The watch offers an SDK and anyone can get under the hood to create their own app running right on top of their embedded OS. If you have C programming language skills you can take control over the OLED display, Bluetooth connection, vibrating motor, button, timers, interrupts and more. To get started you might want to check out the PingStat app that is offered as an example – also check out these apps.

Go on – get your hack on. With the Allerta inPulse watch, hackers are welcome. We’d love to hear what you come up in the comments below.
