The Pebble Watch, a so-called smart watch that was supposed to take the world by storm, did not really manage to capture the imagination of the masses, never mind that it has long picked up more than enough dough required to launch on Kickstarter, the crowdfunding site. Having said that, developers will be able to grab hold of a proof-of-concept software developer’s kit (SDK) for the Pebble Watch from as early as the second week of April, according to the company behind this smart timepiece.

The initial release of the SDK is said to be fairly limited, as developers will not be able to gain access to the accelerometer or communication between watchfaces and smartphones. The focus of the company right nw remains on producing and shipping the timepieces, before a more extensive and comprehensive SDK will be able to roll out for developers. With nearly 70,000 Kickstarter backers having thrown their money to get the Pebble Watch when released, there are still 30,000 or so more Pebble Watches that have yet to be manufactured.
