If you haven’t heard, this is a Pebble Smartwatch. Mine is in the post somewhere between Heathrow and my house… But there is no post on weekends!
Instead, I’ve spent a lot of today setting up the Pebble SDK toolchain and dependencies on a Ubuntu Virtual Machine, and brushing up on my C++ so that when it arrives, I can make my own watch apps!
The fantastic thing about it is that it is completely open, and there are lots of code examples, which I can understand thanks to my tinkering with C and Java.
As a sample of what the community has already achieved, here is John Cleese as a watchface app. Source here.
