Yeah just orange, grey and white to come. You're correct though, thank god they made Red as the first extra colour! Also I totally agree on the polyurethane bands. Metal and metal is awesome (ie metal face and band), but on plastic it looks terrible. The placcy ones look great these days and are easy to clean :)

What's the impact on the battery life of your phone from using it?

Drop me a line with the sellers info Chucky. I'm finding it to be extremely handy, once you setup the notifications you want it works brilliantly. Main thing at the moment is just waiting for the SDK to come out so it can be more useful.

Battery life on the phone is hardly worth noting. I think I've come out with maybe 10% less battery than normal on my Note 2, once they enable the Bluetooth 4.0 element of it I think you will hardly ever notice.

Let me know how your battery life goes, I've been getting about 2-3 days out of mine. I've found that using watchfaces with white backgrounds and little in the way of black tends to be better on battery.

Generally I am running Text Watch, but I also added these ones today:

Mario (animated, jumps up every minute): http://www.mypebblefaces.com/view?fID=5 ... e&auID=581

Maurice (analog): http://www.mypebblefaces.com/view?fID=1 ... &auID=1486

Dragon (animated analog, blinks every minute or so): http://www.mypebblefaces.com/view?fID=6 ... r&auID=766

Also placed the Gadgetwraps screen protector on (mainly because they scratch pretty easily apparently) and it is currently drying out (as it is a wet install).

Pretty close to switching to a black one now, still haven't heard boo about mine and I've been waiting for a very long time. What are the odds I finally decide to get a black one and the red ones start shipping a day later?

I swear they have the slowest shipping service in the world unless you live in the US.

I've heard of some guys getting their pebble in 4-5 days after they got this email. So they may have got their stuff sorted...

Little bit more expensive than the Pebble, but with QI wireless charging and have to say it looks sexy :P
