The iPhone app needed to unlock much of the functionality of the Pebble e-paper smart watch is now available for download from the iTunes Store - just in time for the first deliveries of the devices.

Pebble had previously suggested that the iPhone app might not be available in time for early deliveries of the watch, which set new records for a Kickstarter project in raising over $10 million in funding.

Pebble provides a range of ways to interact with the iPhone in your pocket via Bluetooth link, including caller ID, SMS and iMessage alerts, calendar reminders, email, Facebook and Twitter messages.

It's really weird you have to "plug-in" to charge.

They should have made them solar powered or induction charged. It's a hassle to keep a charging cable by the bed every night.

Otherwise neat idea. I'll probably wait for v2.0.

It's even more difficult to keep the sun by the bed every night :D

My citizen eco-drive watches have pretty much a perpetual battery. A couple minutes of direct sunlight or 5 - 10 minutes under a lamp is all that it needs to keep it charged.

Yes, Pebble uses Bluetooth which uses more power, but Citizen has a bluetooth watch (Citizen Proximity) watch which is solar powered. Even the new GPS watches from Seiko and Citizen are solar powered.

Solar powered watches are very practical and have become the core power technology for most Citizen and Seiko watches these days...

How can people on the App Store be giving the app 5 star reviews when all it does is open and give you a link to help and tech support?!

Idiots!

I think the question is who these people actually are... Or who they work for/associated with.

Report Highlights Danger of Using AirTags for Tracking Dogs

Monday January 30, 2023 1:45 pm PST by
AirTags may be a convenient way for tracking dogs that might get off leash or otherwise lost, but there are dangers associated with the practice, as outlined by a report from The Wall Street Journal. At 1.26 inches in diameter, AirTags are able to fit easily on a dog's collar, but that size also makes the tracking devices small enough to swallow, at least for a medium to large-sized dog, and ...
