My buzz-sawing Submariner just can't compete with my new Pebble and its integrated viewfinder.

The Pebble™ is a so-called smartwatch with an e-paper display. It comes with various watch-faces and can run custom apps. Some of these apps communicate with your phone so that you can see incoming SMS messages, e-mails and calls. You can get one for ~$150 at getpebble.com.
Before we started the project we measured the maximum bandwidth available to the Pebble. Apparently the communication is limited to ~3 kilobytes per second! And it's even slower on Android... This is roughly enough to transfer a single frame per second. We are already working on a special video codec to cope with that limitation.
Sometimes something goes wrong in the long communication chain between your Pebble, your phone and the PebbleCam app. Try to do one of the following:
PebbleCam is fully compatible with the Pebble 2.0 firmware. Just open PebbleCam on your phone, tap Connect and (Re-)Install the watch app as suggested.
The reason you got this e-mail is that we don't have an app entry in the Pebble appstore but only a companion-app entry. If we had added one, your Pebble would've upgraded the app automatically.
We didn't add an app entry it since we wanted to streamline the installation of PebbleCam for new users, to tell them upfront that it is a paid app to make sure nobody feels ripped off.
We're sorry that this requires and additional step for you as an upgrading user.
