With a million units shipped, the Pebble is one of the first successful smartwatches, and it now works with Android Wear.
Pebble owners can now use their smartwatch with any app that is can send Android Wear notifications, including Whatsapp, Square Cash, and more.
Pebble first added Android Wear support back in December, but limited to access to only beta testers at the time. Today the Android Wear support officially launches, and is available with the latest Pebble firmware update (the latest companion app for Android is also required).
Coincidentally, Pebble's app runs on Android 4.0, while official Android Wear support requires Android 4.3. If you like your current smartphone and don't want to upgrade to make use of a smartwatch, Pebble's $99 entrant is probably looking pretty attractive right now.
With just under 5 million smartwatches shipped last year (including 720,000 Android Wear models), Pebble is facing increasing competition. And given that it has Google's official backing, Android Wear is likely going to be the leading smartwatch platform by the end of this year, after the Apple Watch.
