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 even more difficult to keep the sun by the bed every night :D
- yeah sure, one moment, which button was it, "beep/beep", oops, great timing, ok, it's twelve fif...Where did she go?
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...
I think the question is who these people actually are... Or who they work for/associated with.
