A quick heads up to anyone that was following, or bid on the Pebble I have listed. I woke up this morning to discover eBay had removed the listing, and suspended my account. I was very confused because I only have positive reviews. I called eBay and they said they just needed to verify my account. I am not sure exactly why, but it had to do with this being the first item I have listed for sale. Everything is good now, but I had to create a new listing. My apologies to anyone effected.

Oh wow I thought it had a headphone jack. So that does beg the question, of controlling music. If I have wired headset, I'd have controls. If I have bluetooth headset I'd have controls. Idk if I get it.

Yeah. I had a Metawatch and even though I could control the music from my watch it was easier to do it with the controls on my Bluebuds.

Not sure about watxh specifically but I know that I can have my phone paired to my truck for calls and then paired to headset at the same time so multiple bluetooth profiles are a go

Can it say the next direction on Google Navigation when walking, like what it says in the ongoing notification?

Thanks.

I haven't specifically tested this.. But my initial answer is yes. If an app can give a notification, you can get it on the Pebble. There is an Android app in the Play Store called "Pebble Notifier". With that app you can select any app on your phone to send notifications to the Pebble.

Re: Pebble E-Paper Smart Watch & Note 2 [Review]
One of the concerns of a smart watch is how much will your phones battery life suffer due to the bluetooth connection.

After a few days of testing I have seen zero noticable impact on battery life. I dont know if it is because the Note 2 has such a beast of a battery, or if it is because bluetooth 4.0 just barely sips battery, but I am not kidding. I haven't seen any difference in battery life.

most likely bluetooth 4 is very power efficient, pebble supports it and so does the note2
I'll be getting one of these watches, theres going to be all sorts of apps for them, I think they will be huge and therefore attract developers.
