Straight from their information page, also they do not make them at all yet, the Kickstarter states that they will start shipping in September however, currently there are only Demo models.


Compatibility
  • iPhone 3GS, 4, 4S running iOS 5 or any iPod Touch with iOS 5.
  • Android devices running OS 2.3 and up. Works great with Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich)!
Unfortunately Pebble does not work with Blackberry, Windows Phone 7, or Palm phones at this time.

i assume it would work with the iPad however, it would be kinda stupid as you would be required to be within 30ft of your ipad at all times just to use the watch.

The watch works by connecting via Bluetooth to a phone with an app on it which then sends weather/txt message alerts and other information to the watch. the watch CANNOT function without the use of a connected phone. with the applications.

For those that do not know what it is here you go

It's a timepiece you wear on your wrist. Except instead of a quartz crystal, it uses a pebble.

lol, funny dude :) Btw you have a scary face from Robocop 2.

I've also pre-ordered this. It's cheaper than most basic eInk watches in the UK.
