Pebble is a customisable Bluetooth smart watch that works with iOS and Android. For instance, earlier this week, Pebble added native support for Google Hangouts via an update to the Pebble for Android app. 

In a press release, Pebble explained that its expansion into retail distribution was "a key step in meeting the tremendous public demand for its crowd-supported e-paper watch for iOS and Android".
