Pebble updates ready for firmware, iOS and Android apps; get Pandora on your wrist
Only time will tell if Pebble will become the most successful product to be funded on Kickstarter. The watch raised $10 million in crowd-sourced funding, which might have predicted the success that Pebble has had in a crowded smartwatch market.

Pebble seems like a cool "hobby watch". Maybe somewhat basic, but at least it doesn't have the deceptive health/movement monitoring stuff that is really just a big data grab.

Had a Steel. Hated it. Was beyond unreliable for both iOS and Android. The pebble app store was clunky and slow and most of the apps required companion apps which cost money and don't add that much value. The backlight wasn't white but more 'blue'. I also kept getting BT disconnected and it just wouldn't re pair with either phone. I also either frequently got no notifications or dual notifications. Just a frustrating device especially for the cost. Work on getting the basic functionality reliable before worrying about new features.
