There are two ways to write a pebble app, use c code and release to the Pebble store, or as I have done with NewsSnacker, write in JavaScript and release to the Pebble app store.  They only problem is Apple has not released an update to allow iOS users to install apps written in JavaScript.  … Read More

As it has been reported, the battery life on the Moto360 is so poor you cannot even for a full day.  However, there is hope.  The most recent firmware update had improved the battery life significantly.  So much so that users are reporting more then a day usage.  This assumes you are not using ‘always’… Read More

Let the smart watch war begin.  Now to be fair, the Pebble is not from a major player and thus does not have the money to fight a full fight, however, the Pebble is able to surprisingly hold its own from a use point of view.  So lets compare the Gear and the Pebble.  BTW,… Read More


Today Pebble released update 1.2.   So far, the only thing I have noticed is Gmail support.  But that is huge. I know with Android you can already do this with various tools, but for non jailbroken iOS users, this is a great new function. Now this is not the greatest thing in the world if… Read More


This was a question posted on Reddit.  It brought up a good conversation, but I think I can condense it into a few point to help you decided between buying a Pebble or other smart watch now, or wait for the Apple iWatch. Before I bought my Pebble through kick starter a year ago, got… Read More


Almost exactly a year in fact I wrote about an Apple smart watch. It makes sense given what can be done with siri. Well now rumors are flying around ( broken by mobilegeeks and  BI ) that Apple is finally getting around to building a watch. Given the move to more portable and wearable computing,… Read More
