Pebble has announced the release of the PebbleKit SDK for its smart watch featuring 2-way communication via the AppMessage subsystem and a Sports API.

The major addition is the AppMessage subsystem which enables watchapps to send and receive data from a connected smartphone app. Be sure to install the latest Pebble firmware 1.10.2 as well. We have also released new documentation including a full API reference.

● Watchfaces augmented with data from the internet
