Pebble smartwatch delayed, won't be ready for the holidays
There was some good news announced today. The Pebble will work with the SMS on the Apple iPhone. Text and iMessages meant for the Apple iPhone and Apple iPod touch will be able to be read on the watch. When paired with a mobile device, alarms, message alerts and notifications can be displayed. The watch is 50mm x 30mm and is in a waterproof body. 22mm watch bands are compatible with the Pebble smartwatch. Final colors were announced. Those who ordered the device can choose from white, black, red, grey, and orange. To select a color, those who have placed an order can head to their accounts page and make a selection as long as it is done before December 14th.
The delay will prevent those who ordered the Pebble smartwatch from receiving it in time for the holidays.

This is crazy I was thinking how cool would it be to have a watch like an iPod Nano that displays messages and connects with your smartphone. Should have patented my idea lol

How long ago did you think this? Reason I ask is because there has been a list of products that have done something like this before (though at different price ranges). Even before the smartphone (I mean the modern day smartphone like the iPhone where there are accessories that use the phone for various things), there was MSN Direct watches made by Fossil in 2004. It was able to look up sport scores, your email, calendar events, the weather, and so forth. It was really ahead of its time, but sadly I don't think that many people really cared about it back then
Here is what it looked like.
So, even if you had the idea for a iPod nano on your wrist, I think MSN and Fossil would have already had the main patents you would have needed to make it (and like ReddD said, Sony made a wristwatch for Android as well).
