  1. I wonder if Pebble can survive when Apple comes to town? Maybe within 12 months Pebble can start adding all the sensors Apple will have, but able to be priced as the low cost alternative. That’s saying IF the iWatch actually has more than a tiny pulse oximeter and the other 8 sensors are in the iPhone 5s. If that happens, then the Pebble and Moto360 can just crush it. I really hope it’s some futuristic band that blows the world away. I think it’s gonna be one or the other.
