No !

Nobody is going to port to "old" hardware. Everybody wants to sell us new stuff.

And I'm not sure anything currently on the market even has the power for Android (Wear), nevermind whatever checklist of items Google decided compliant devices must have.

Sorry, the Pebble Smart watch isn't powerful enough.

The CPU is an STM32F205RE Cortex M3, the chip can be at best 120Mhz, unsure if the Pebble even has that much, perhaps only 80Mhz.
It has <128Kb of memory and only 1Mb of storage.

Essentially the cpu would need to be >10 times faster with 5-10 times the memory and several thousand times more storage for Android Wear.



That btw doesn't mean that Pebble can't make a good eink Android Wear device, in fact, they should do it. But it will be a completely different and vastly better device compared to their current offering.

Yeah, it needs to have more power in order to do that.
