FCC gets timely visit from the Pebble smartwatch
While the actual launch date for the Pebble smartwatch is unknown, the device did visit the FCC which is at the least, one important task that needed to be done before the watch was made available in the U.S. The group behind Pebble might be beginning to feel some pressure to release the smartwatch after hearing talk that Apple and Intel could be working together on a 1.5 inch iOS smartwatch of their own, that obviously would be one of Pebble's top competitors.

Well if the Apple news is true, Pebble better apply for every damn patent they can think of. If they don't, you know who will.

Yeah, but it looks like someone strapped a thick iPod on their wrist as an afterthought. And they have the nerve to label it "elegant"?

I own Motorola Motoactv which I brought especially for running but wearing like a watch. When I read what are the things this can do apart from pairing with Apple and email my watch does all of them for $149/- so nothing more special about this unless the price tag is much less than $150/-
