Then a while back, Pebble got acquired by Fitbit. And now, the Cloud IDE of Pebble is not available anymore. Than means I cannot develop new apps for my Pebble, even if it is still working just fine.
Why would I buy a new watch (twice as expensive), and re-write all my apps? This is quite frustrating...
In fact, there was something wrong from the beginning.
All those so-called smart watches need a Bluetooth cell-phone to connect to, and from there it will reach other data. Why not a TCP-based protocol from the watch, to bypass the phone? Power consumption? I doubt it.
This is not about accessibility or configuration either, I do it all the time for Raspberry Pis and similar boards,
sshand similar protocols have been here for this kind of remote access, for ages, and for good reasons.
Smart glasses, head-up displays (HUD), smart watches, all those devices are just displays, all they need is to connect to a data bus and display what they mean to (just like an NMEA bus).
I suspect some marketing bullshit behind the scene..., again.
If this kind of TCP watch does not show up soon, I'll build one. Bam!
