    It's more a case of when hoepfully not if.

    $130 for a black one with international shipping = approx 83

    Is that not just very, very similar to the latest ipod nano with the watch strap? Looks good though.

    It has increased functionality granted, but I'm sure Apple will be doing the same sort of thing with updates and moving forward with any next generation model.

    Possibly but that thing is hackable and programmable not just tied into Apple

    Indeed but with that much capital it should make for some awesome improvements in the original design as well hopefully, such as being waterproof.

    There's even been talking in the comments of people requesting mic and speakers in it to make it a bluetooth speaker phone essentially

    I think kickstarter is an amazing idea and has already given so much capital to so many projects. When banks are not investing the world is!

    The pebble looks great, but reading other articles it is unlikely that Apple will give it enough support for the caller id and SMS notifications to be pushed so that might be android only.

    Latest update on the pebble says they are going to make it waterproof.

    I would guess that if you had a bluetooth ear-piece/speakerphone hooked up at the same time you would be able to place a call from your watch by scrolling through your contacts and hitting a button?

    Hope so

    Twine (another really cool Kickstarter project) can now send messages to your Pebble watch...
