Is this meta enough for you? A Kickstarter for an accessory for a product that to date has only been sold on Kickstarter? The Wide Body Kickstarter is being run by the same folks who brought us the Twig iPod charger, and the plush Bunkbots.

I was intrigued by the idea of a unique band for a unique watch. I now know 6 people with Pebble watches, two of which work in the same office with me. I’ve been looking for a way to set mine off and the leather band from Wide Body should do just that.

I ordered my Pebble with the 24cm band, and it barely fits my wrist, so when Jason Hilbourne pitched this idea to me I was quick to request an extra long option. One more centimeter would do, but 2 or 3 wouldn’t be too much.

You can find out more about the watch band on the Wide Body Kickstarter page. More info about the company behind the watch band, Twig, and many more products can be found at UTENSILE.com. If you need a compact charger for a 30 pin iPod, I really recommend the Twig. It fits easily in any bag and doubles as a tripod for an iPod or iPhone. The Twig is available at Amazon for about $20.
