Developers Get Access to Official Pebble Watchface SDK

Pebble, the e-paper smart watch that earned more than $10 million on Kickstarter, now has an official public SDK available for iOS developers.
Your patience has been rewarded…you have a brand new Pebble Smartwatch in your hands. And, of course, now you want to make it do your bidding.

This developer documentation will show you how to create your own functionality for a Pebble Smartwatch.

At this point in time the SDK is limited to creating different watch faces and does not support the creation of standard apps, though the Pebble website says that a Sports SDK will be added soon, allowing developers to incorporate Runkeeper-style features.

The new Watchface SDK comes alongside version 1.10 of PebbleOS, which also offers up options for disabling backlighting and vibrations along with several bug fixes for iOS users.

I'm not sure what developers are supposed to do with this? Make a different clock face? :confused:

He wants to see the weather and time with a quick glance at his wrist..?


I know each person lives their life differently, but I don't get this at all. If I'm outside all I need to do is look AWAY from my wrist to see what the weather is. Otherwise, if I'm planning on doing something that is weather dependent, I can certainly take 30 seconds to look at my phone and make a decision (coat or no). Why on earth would I need a moment-by-moment display of the weather?

They support development on Mac OS and Linux, but not Windows? My how far we've come. :p Although their solution seems to be loading Ubuntu in Virtualbox, Cygwin would probably work too.

May have to get one of these watches. My developer curiosity is almost unbearable!

What an ugly piece of poop a Pebble watch is. I wouldn't be caught dead wearing that. Why is a cheap watch the next big thing? Big fail IMO, even if a bunch of nerds bought one of these in a Kickstarter.


:rolleyes:

I hope that the irony of you posting this on a tech forum at 8:49 p.m on Friday and mocking the "nerds" isn't completely lost.
