This question already has an answer here:

The Pebble is a smart watch that connects to a smart-phone via Bluetooth and can deliver messages to your wrist. Am I allowed to wear it on Shabbat if I disconnect it from my phone? Think of it, then, as a smart phone disconnected from service, so your phone stays on the home page with no activity besides the time changing (hence I won't press any buttons).

    Welcome to Mi Yodeya! Could you explain why you think you might not be allowed to? (For example, why did you promise you won't press buttons? Do you think that might matter?)

    If you disconnect it from your phone, is it any different from any other kind of watch? – Daniel Apr 17 '13 at 18:27

    The question seems to be a special case of this question judaism.stackexchange.com/questions/8725/… "What is a watch one can wear on shabbat?". See the discussion there. – Avrohom Yitzchok Apr 17 '13 at 21:27

    @msh210 That is indeed way better, instead of making me feel the noob part, of which I was intimidated even before I posted, you are merely asking for clarification. Sorry for overreacting. And to be honest, I wouldn't even know what to clarify with, the only reason I could think of as to why it would not be permissible is Muktza. Think of it as a smart phone disconnected from service, so your phone stays on the home page with no activity besides the time changing (hence the no-pressing comment). – Sol Apr 18 '13 at 14:33
