Pebble gets unofficial Windows Phone 8 support from an app
If you're a Windows Phone owner feeling left out because the platform doesn't support the Pebble smartwatch, have we got news for you. While it is not an official solution, there is a way for the timepiece to support Microsoft's mobile OS. And the whole solution is as simple as can be. If you know how to download and install an app from the Windows Phone Store, you can enable your Windows Phone handset to sync with your Pebble smartwatch.

The name of the app is Pebble Watch Pro. Once installed on your Windows Phone 8 flavored phone, you will be able to see your tweets, calendar notifications and network alerts on your Pebble. Get an alert when your phone's battery drops under 50%, 40%, 30%, 20% or 10%. And you can also be notified when you lose or regain access to your 3G, 4G or Wi-Fi pipeline.

Once your Pebble is synced with your Windows Phone, you can control your music playlist from the watch. Hit play or pause, or move ahead to the next song using the Pebble's music app.

The app is $1.99 on the Windows Phone Store. Or, you can try the free version, Pebble Watch Lite. This offers you the ability to control your music from the Pebble smartwatch, but nothing else.

That device is awful statically. At least.
