I actually have a pebble, and it is an absolutely fantastic device.

It shows text message, phone calls, emails, FB notifications, whats app messages, etc, right on the screen.

I can control my music from it and it even displays what song is playing.

Battery lasts 5-7 days

Waterproof.

You can get tons of cool watchfaces, that show information like weather and stuff.

Lots of alarm settings and apps.

You can even get apps that do push notifications for google maps right on your watch, or allow you to call people from the watch.

Honestly I found myself wearing my pebble more than my countless other watches.

Maybe I should've elaborated more on why.

Yeah the Pebble isn't bad but you need to use two apps and a website to manage Pebble, it sucks the battery of the phone and the connection isn't very stable. At least that is my own experience with it. Maybe I wasn't lucky but I've spoken more people about the Pebble and they had the same issues.

It's great, but not as 'smart' as a smartwatch should be imho

Even though I could, I could never warrant that price and I doubt it will look that good in reality. It does look an amazing concept though.
