The Pebble smart watch has received an official update to its iOS app, bringing proper push notifications for emails and fixing compatibility for AOL and iCloud email accounts. Official support for email notifications had been introduced earlier this month, but with access limited to fetching on 15-minute intervals.

Pebble
The app officially launched alongside the smart watch in January, with the device originally gaining notice for raising over $10 million in funding on Kickstarter. Access to the SDK for the device was given to developers in April.

Apple has been highly rumored to be working on a smart watch of its own to potentially launch next year, with a number of other major technology companies also working on their own projects.

Pebble's iOS app can be downloaded from the App Store for free. [Direct Link]

Don't get the Pebble at all.
It looks like the watch equivalent of this:

You're wrong. I own a Pebble. The phone pictured in your post is nothing like it. The phone actually worked as advertised...

Pebble isn't a "smartwatch." It's a dumb terminal slaved to a smartphone.
Big difference.

Can a regular watch link to your phone and preview messages and the like? no.
Hence the "smart watch" name.

It's interesting. I got one of the kickstarter models and I love it. Put my phone in my backpack pocket, walking I can see my runkeeper details, change tracks and answer calls all without having to stop get my phone from my bag. Useful at the gym too for changing tracks and timers etc.

May not be useful for you, but I really like it.

I've got a Kickstarter edition as well and love it. Love wearing a watch again. Love the notifications on my wrist without pulling my phone out. Love being able to skip songs playing on my iPhone. Hey, I'll buy the Apple watch when it comes out as well. But waiting for that is like not buying a cell phone until Apple makes one. I've got the best smart watch on the market today. If Apple tops it, I'll buy that.

By the way, I get tons of compliments from men and women just on the looks. They freak when they see it interacts with my phone. To each his/her own but I'm a happy backer.
