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.

Take note Apple!
Slow news day!
Dangit, you won!
I wouldn't wear it on a bet...
Apple announces the iWatch - macrumor user 1st in line.
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?
May have to get one of these watches. My developer curiosity is almost unbearable!
