Loyalty card on your Pebble watch


I am one person that hate bringing too much loyalty cards but also hate when I do not have it when I need it. Long time ago, I though I found the solution by storing them in my phone using storcard app, however since iPhone screen is too bright, most of the time the card won't get scanned.

Since I bought Pebble smart watch, one thing crossed my mind, because it has e-ink display, why don't I store my loyalty card on the device?

I googled how to do this, however the only answer I found is by creating an image of your loyalty card and then use WatchFace Generator to create a new watch face with your loyalty card. It might works (I have not test it) however since Pebble only has 8 app slots, it might not be the most effective way to do it.

Then I browsed through the Pebble watch app store and found an app, it is called Skunk. The app itself is very simple, however it serves my purpose. It can hold 8 loyalty cards in one app!

The process is, you have to install the Skunk app first and then input the barcode of your loyalty app.

Because there are so many types of barcodes, it might be hard to find which one is which. There is an app from iPhone called scanner. It will scan your loyalty card and then tell you what is the barcode's type. Input it into your Skunk program and then save it.

This is what it looks like after you run it on your watch.

Bear in mind, since the Pebble only has a limited space, the barcode will be very small and might not get scanned in the first go. I also found that this Skunk software can be a little bit buggy once you stored more than 3 cards. It will tell you that the app has crashed. If this happen, just restart the Pebble app store and try again.
