Detailed review
This is a good first start but really not ready for prime time yet. They had to put out something for their kickstarter backers who had been waiting nearly a year. The product category has potential but Pebble is likely to be overshadowed by the big boys (Apple, Google, Microsoft, Samsung) later this year.
