I preordered a while ago. They sent an email saying they are shipping shortly. I am pretty excited. Just nervous that the watch will be too big for my wrist.

Cool, how is?
Pretty awesome, but it won't reach its full potential until they release the SDK so us developers can make apps for it. It was incredibly useful when I was building a swing set this afternoon, I was able to just look at my wrist even time I got an email to see if it was important and needed to be dealt with now or later :-)
Greatest thing is being able to keep my phone on silent and my wrist will still vibrate when I get a notification.

I loved the concept, but I always wait til version 2.0.
This kinda is v2. The same people already did a smart watch a couple of years back that wasn't too great.

$99 for a black watch 12 months ago :-D

Yea they hope to get all the kickstarter orders out by May and then start on the pre orders.
The first 85k manufactured will be for kickstarter orders, see here.

I've heard battery life is better with Android. Using the latest firmware I went the whole last week without charging. :-)

Received the Kickstarter Backer version of the Pebble wristwatch. Mine is in Grey.

Does what they say .... syncronizes effortessely via Bluetooth with my Samsung Note 2.
Now whenever I get a call the watch vibrates and the "Caller ID" is displayed on my watch.
I can decide if I want to answer and reach down to my phone or decline and do nothing.
Same goes for Texts and Emails.
(How are proctors going to police looking at 'the time' during an exam???).

I also control my Music player - stopping, starting and skipping songs on the Note 2,
which are displayed on my watch together with Song, Artist and Album info.

There are tons of nifty watch faces available to download and special apps for Cyclists, Golfers
and Runners, with many more to come.

There are still some refinements that need to be made but all in all it is a useful tool and it tells the time too!
We are one step closer to Dick Tracy (showing my age!).

PS I think they sell in Best Buy for about $150.

But he thinks he is special so he can have his own thread. Everyone wants to be special at his own time.

But then we come along and ruin his special time.

Please search before posting. Thanks Shreknit for doing my work ;)

Where's the best place to buy a smart watch from which works for Nexus4?

Amazon sells the pebble for $150 - is that a good price or I can find it cheaper? http://www.amazon.com/Pebble-Smartwatch-iPhone-Android-Black/dp/B00BKEQBI0/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1387095923&sr=8-2&keywords=pebble

  Thanks
