    I don't. Nothing in their DNA suggests they need to.

    Its nothing to do with pebble not making the app as far as I know its that Microsoft dont allow the integration into messages calandar etc that a pebble/other smart watches require.

    I don't think this is true. They don't need to use the calendar or messaging app on the phone as Microsoft Band they can categorize every notification that you receive. Ex: If you remove calendar tile from band since it can't find the category it will come as a normal notification to notification center.

    Update 1 brings deep wearable integration with the OS meaning any wearable can tap into notifications. So there's no reason to create a Pebble app for WP (although I'm not expecting them to make one for us...). I really like the Pebble Time though - that UI looks sick!

    As said in the WC article it's probably an internal proof-of-concept app between Microsoft and Pebble. Hopefully it gets somewhere!

    AND, you just prompted me to log on and tweet a complaint as well. I suggest we all do this.

    Enjoying my Band too much to care about a Pebble, especially with their CEO's attitude to Windows.

    Absolutely, I will. The flood of tweets can make a pressure to Pebble. ;-)

    With Apple releasing their own smart watch Pebble is sticking with Android.

    Looking at Pebble's company profile, it's kind of dumb to ignore the few Windows Phone users out there. Since WP doesn't really have any smartwatches, those that want one will likely pick up their watch. So say they sell a 100k units to the couple million WP users out there. Is it really that bad to gross $20M in revenue if they would just put a single dev to work on the app/updates, or just completely forego an additional revenue stream because the CEO doesn't like Microsoft? It's like a brat at a playground, these companies.

    I put my money down on a Pebble Steel and own a Lumia 925, I'm hoping by the time July rolls around they will have figured something else out. I will continue to tweet my thoughts about the lack of WP support. It is the age old people hating on MS just because they are MS, I mean they were willing to write and support the app and Pebble still says no? Doesn't really make any sense.

    Interesting find....If you go to the app in the store...and select "Download and Manually install", you can download it.

    I downloaded it and renamed it to a ZIP file, I was able to extract it, so it's not encrypted (all WP apps are encrypted to prevent piracy, that was a big problem on WP7).

    This means if you have the Dev tools and your phone is Dev unlocked you SHOULD be able to sideload it and see if it works.

    Would love to hear the results before I go out and buy a pebble..

    Makes me wonder how a few other people got a hold of it and are using it. On another thread on here, someone has a 1520 and has it on there, there is no Interop-unlock for any Nokia phones right now (unless this has changed)

    That is not true. The app is running on my L1520 and is working perfectly with my Pebble.
    Anyway I posted a how to in this thread:
